Dianne Lynne Lachner-Erickson
May 4, 1949 - January 9, 2022

Dianne Lynne Lachner-Erickson (Stark) passed away unexpectedly in the early morning hours of January 9, 2022 at the age of 72. While our hearts are broken, we are all grateful for the time we were able to spend with her. She made everyone feel special with her warmth and smile, and was a best friend to all.

 Born in Milwaukee, WI on May 4, 1949 to Anthony and Virginia Stark, Dianne is survived by her loving husband Mark, her children Christopher (Chrissy) and Nicole (Jamie). Beloved Grammy to Brianna, Madelyn, Isabelle and Shay. Great Grammy to Adrian. Preceded in death by her parents and brother Peter Stark. Dianne will be greatly missed by her sister Mary (Mike) Koehler, sister-in law Debbie Stark, brothers Kenneth (Nancy) Stark, David (Mary) Stark, and Brian Stark. She is further survived by many nieces and nephews.   Dianne spent many years with Falls Patio Players, loved to travel & hang out with her favorite “witches”. Conversation with friends and laughter filled her days, but her biggest joy in life was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was getting to know her new great-grandchild and was overjoyed to watch over him during the day for the last few months.
