Diane Holzschuh

March 29, 1938 — September 22, 2021

Rhinelander

Diane Marie Holzschuh, 83, formerly of Rhinelander, went to her Heavenly Home on September 22, 2021, to join her husband Jim, who passed away November 11, 2009. Diane was born March 29, 1938, in Rhinelander, WI to the late William and Verna (Mount) Didelot.

She attended St. Mary's School and Senior High School, Rhinelander and attended and graduated from Green Bay College of Beauty and Cosmetology. She was in the beauty business for many years. Diane was very talented in all kinds of crafts and oil paintings, doing fifteen paintings which are treasure by family and friends. She also volunteered at Wausau Hospital and was active at Holy Name Church.

She was united in marriage to James Holzschuh October 27, 1973, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Rhinelander. They had just celebrated 36 years together before Jim passed away. Diane was a wonderful homemaker. Together, they had two homes they planned together, one in Wausau and a beautiful log home in Rhinelander on the Wisconsin River. They spent many years enjoying the beauty of the North with family and friends. They traveled a great deal together and also belonged to the Wausau Antique Auto Club and the Northern Lakes Auto Club, which they joined in the early 80's. They had a fair amount of antique cars they enjoyed on tours.

Diane will be sadly missed by her family and friends- especially Phyllis and Gerry Klinger who were always there for Diane after she lost Jim.

Diane is survived by her nephews Mark (Gwen) and children Ashlee and Alexander Varekois of Rockford, MI and Patrick Varekois of Portage, WI; and niece Jeanne (Terry) Wright of Golden Valley, MN. She is preceded in death by her sister Bonnie Varekois.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, September 30 at 10:00 am at Holy Name of Jesus Parish, 1104 S 9th Ave, Wausau with visitation beginning at 9:00 am. Burial will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Marshfield. Rather than flowers, please consider making a donation to the church.

Diane’s family wishes to thank hospice and Primrose Memory Care for their care and compassion.
