Dianne J. Burk

November 21, 1934 — October 16, 2023



Dianne Jean Burk,  passed away on October 16, 2023. She was born on November 21, 1934, in Wisconsin Rapids, WI, to her parents Clifford Dolan and Eleanor Smith.

Dianne had a zest for life and a passion for her work. She graduated with a High School Diploma and went on to become a dedicated typesetter for the gaming industry. She achieved great success as the head typesetter for Dungeons and Dragons in Lake Geneva, WI. Her creativity and attention to detail made her an indispensable member of the team.

Outside of work, Dianne had a heart of gold. She found joy in creating beautiful knitted and crocheted pieces, which she generously donated to various charities, hospitals, and even local police departments. Her loving nature and selflessness touched the lives of many.

Dianne will be deeply missed by her daughters, Lori Burk, Jayne (Ken)Dombrowski, and Barbara (Eric) Haggen, who will forever cherish the memories they shared together. She leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness, as well as her beloved grandchildren, Anthony Burk, Cory Guss, Kelly (Baird) Liebzeit, Katie Mallum, and Stephanie (Rolando) Abundiz. Dianne was also blessed with great-grandchildren, Josslyn, Delaney, Lucy, Gezebelle, and Azariah, who brought immense joy to her life.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Clifford Dolan and Eleanor Smith; step-mother, Margaret, as well as her great-grandson, Elixavier. Dianne is also reunited with her siblings, Nancy Blankenship, William Dolan, and Robert Dolan, who have gone before her.

In accordance with Dianne's wishes, there will not be a public service to commemorate her life. Instead, her family and friends will gather privately to share stories, memories, and celebrate the incredible woman that she was.

Dianne Jean Burk's kind heart, unwavering dedication, and love for her family will forever be etched in their hearts. She will be remembered as a cherished mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and dear friend. May she rest in eternal peace.
