Dianne Marie Geurts, 74, of Winneconne, WI entered into heaven in the presence of the Holy Spirit surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, March 13, 2021.

Dianne was born December 10, 1946, to Arnold and Eileen Gassner in Wausau, WI.  

In 1968 she married Ken Geurts; together they went on to have three children. Dianne was a wonderful and loving mother to her children and their spouses. Her strength, kindness, and generosity were an inspiration to all. She will be forever in our hearts.

Ken and family. I was so sorry to learn of Dianne's passing. Dianne and I became friends the first time we met, working side by side at Associated Bank in the 80's. Every day we'd share stories about our families, our children, their school activities and anything else that popped into our heads. It was fun as our children were growing up. No topic was ever off limits. It was always nice to be able to talk to her every day. If Dianne ever met challenges, she met them fiercely, yet calmly and quiet to her family and friends. Although we did not often see each other in these later years, anytime we did meet included a huge, long hug. And then we'd try to catch up on everything. Dianne, you will be sadly missed by everyone who had the pleasure to have known you. Rest in peace, my friend.

I remember working with Dianne at Associated Bank in Neenah many years ago. She was really a very nice woman who made all of my days working there fun. She always had a smile on her face and was loved by her customers and fellow workers. Rest In Peace Dianne. You were a great friend and co-worker. Thank you for teaching me how to be a great teller.

We are so sorry to hear of Dianne's passing. We were long ago neighbors in the Town of Neenah where we were raising our families, Dianne and Ken on Fury Ln and Reg and I on Klompen Ct. We both moved to Winneconne in the late 80's and time and circumstances caused us to drift apart. Our love, prayers and thoughts are with Ken and their family

It was a sincere pleasure to meet and get to know Dianne. Even though we only knew her for a brief time, she made us smile and touched our hearts with her warm personality. Our deepest and most sincere condolences to the Geurts family during this difficult time. Prayers to all!
