Diane Marie Huck
Diane Marie Huck, 59, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Friday, February 18, 2022 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
She was born on April 25, 1962 to Darold and Naomi (Heimerl) Collien in Waupun, Wisconsin. Diane was the youngest of 10 siblings and grew up in Oakfield, Wisconsin. Diane graduated from Oakfield High School in 1980 and was a part of the Oakfield basketball team who went to state for three consecutive years, winning the state championship in 1979. She met her husband of 37 years, Mark Huck, and they married on May 26, 1984. Together, they had two daughters, Amanda and Samantha.
Diane loved to spend time with her family and friends and recently retired from her 40-year career at Giddings & Lewis/Fives. She loved to golf, travel to local Wisconsin wineries, press her luck at the casinos, and was always the first on the dance floor at family weddings. She also enjoyed her shopping trips with her twin sister. Diane loved her grandchildren and spent whatever time she could with each of them.
She is survived by her husband, Mark Huck, of North Fond du Lac; daughter, Amanda (Jordan) Weed of Eldorado and their children Laken, Hazel, and Holland; daughter, Samantha (fiancé, Dylan Stanley) Huck of Madison; her parents, Darold and Naomi Collien of Oakfield, as well as her nine brothers and sisters: Gary (Rose) Collien of Oakfield, Gregory (Carol) Collien of Lamartine, Ronald (Karen) Collien of Oakfield, Cheri (Mike) Fisher of Oakfield, Randall (Beth) Collien of Rosendale, Cathy (Mike) Baker of Oakfield, Joe (Lisa) Collien of Lamartine, Karen (Mike) Merk of Oakfield, and Denise (Randy) Andrus of Lamartine.
