Diana M. Smith

On February 7, 2020, Diana M. Smith passed away peacefully with her family at her side at the age of 68.

Diana was born in Laona on Jan. 10, 1952, the daughter of John Louis and Marylyn Virgina Shampo. She attended school in Laona, moved to North Fond du Lac when she started her family and later moved to Rhinelander, where she resided when she passed.

Diana worked as a caregiver until moving to Rhinelander where she then provided cleaning services to the local laundromats. She loved to cook, bake and spend time with her children and grandchildren. Nothing brought her more joy than those three things.

Diana was preceded in death by her parents, John and Marylyn; grandparents, George and Violetta Kimball and Jack and Ida Shampo; and one grandson, Joel. Diana is survived by her four children, Marylyn Pierce, Richard Jr (Samantha) Smith, John (Lindsey) Smith and Peggy (Andy) Fus; her siblings, June (Michael Spierings), Georgia (Robert) Krueger, Jackie (Ken) Carr, Lisa (Scott) Childress and Martin Shampo as well as her 8 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and Donna (Roger) Mullins.

A celebration of Diana's life will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2020. She loved the warmer months this was her specific wish.

The family wishes to thank those who have extended financial and emotional support for Diana during her final days.

A special thank you to her wonderful caregivers, including, her youngest daughter and family (Peggy, Andy, Ceirra and Sabrina Fus), Hospice Care of Rhinelander and Hildebrand Funeral Home.
