Diane Esther Neitzel was born on October 24, 1951 in Theresa, WI, the daughter of Roland and Lyla (Breitag) Neitzel. She was baptized on November 11, 1951 at St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church in Lomira, WI and was confirmed into her faith on April 4, 1965. Diane was a 1970 graduate of Mayville High School and after graduation she worked for West Bend Company until her marriage. On November 4, 1972 she was united in marriage with Wayne Braunschweig at St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church in Lomira, WI. Together they made their home outside of Reeseville where Diane was a mother to her seven children and a daycare provider. Diane also worked for PJ's Restaurant for 18 years. Upon her husband retirement, Diane and Wayne moved to Beaver Dam.

Diane was a faithful member of St. John's Ev. Lutheran Church in Juneau. Diane enjoyed traveling; she went to San Fransisco, New York City, a Caribbean cruise with her daughters and a road trip to Colorado with her husband. She enjoyed musicals, whether on Broadway in NYC, or at the Fireside. She enjoyed going rummaging with Wayne, taking long walks and playing bingo. Most of all Diane loved the time she spent with family, babysitting and playing with her grandchildren.

She will be deeply missed by her husband Wayne of Beaver Dam; her six children: Mandy Braunschweig of Juneau, Nicole Braunschweig of Waterloo, Danielle (Matthew) Rupp of Sullivan, Penni (James) Gleason of Chilton, Corey (Sarah) Braunschweig of Beaver Dam and Rebecca (Brandon) Rennhack of Reeseville, her siblings; Dorothy Kleemann of Watertown, Roy Neitzel of Mayville, and Darlene Neitzel of Mayville, 17 grandchildren; Connor, Chase, Callie, Lexi, Tristin, Rylee, Charley, Owen, Breanna, Aiden, Jayda, Isaiah, Paris, London, Kingston, Millie and Ireland.

My condolences to Diane's family. I have had the great pleasure of taking care of Diane's hair for many years. You have been blessed as well as myself to have had her be apart of our lives. She talked about her family often. She will be greatly missed. It is with great disappointment that I will not be able to be at her service as my husband and I are heading upnorth this afternoon. Never will be forgotten.

I am so sorry for your loss. Diane was always very sweet and kind to me over the years. She was most certainly the strongest woman I have ever met. She always had a smile on her face no matter what she had going on. I will miss seeing her on my visits, but I know she is in heaven watching over you all with Michelle.

Our neighborhood will miss seeing Diane in her daily walks. We had some nice conversations upon meeting on our walks. She was a very lovely person and so courageous in her fight with cancer. Our sympathy to all your family.

To the family of Diane Braunschweig
I will miss your mother/wife. I enjoyed talking to her as she made her "walking rounds" in my sub-division. She always stopped when she saw me and my dog "Charlie" outside and sometimes we would join her for her walk. Such a nice woman I hope you find peace knowing she no longer has pain.
