Diane (Glenetzke) Bremer

December 22, 1955 ~ June 26, 2021 (age 65)


Diane Bremer, 65, of Wausau, passed away unexpectedly at North Memorial Hospital while visiting her family in Minnesota.

 Diane was born in Wausau to the late George and Isabelle (Spatz) Glenetzke on December 22, 1955. She was a 1974 graduate of Wausau West High School. Diane worked at Wausau Manor for 10 years. She then worked at North Central Health Care for 13 years until her retirement in 2010.

Diane was the definition of strength and love. When she was just 9 years old, she was diagnosed with cancer, and even though she beat the odds and won her fight with cancer, she had struggled with her health ever since, but that never stopped her from always being the best version of herself that she could be. To her children, Diane was a loving and caring mom who was always there for them; to her grandchildren, she was the doting grandma who would spoil them as grandmas do. To her siblings, she was the sister who was always checking in to see how everyone was doing and what was going on; to her friends, she was the one who was always there to lend a helping hand. Diane was the light in so many people’s lives, and while they will miss her being by their side, her light will continue to shine on in the memories of all who knew and loved her.

Diane is survived by her children, Jennifer (Jon) Ciatti, and Brian Bremer; three grandchildren, Bryn Bremer, and Jillian and Jessica Ciatti; her siblings, Michael Glenetzke, Shirley (Jon) Greenwood, Debra (Warren) Johnson, John Glenetzke, and Tom (Martina Lindseth) Glenetzke; as well as her nieces and nephew, Samantha Bremer-Gloria, and Amanda and Eric Johnson.
