Diane Kay Domingos, 57, of La Crosse passed away peacefully on February 15, 2023 in La Crosse. She was born February 27, 1965 in La Crosse to Russell and Karen (Englebretson) Dresdow. She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, step-mother, and a woman who cared for many without expecting anything in return. Diane married Belwood “Butch” Lorenz in 1989 at Olivet Lutheran Church, La Crosse. She later married Walter Domingos at the Viroqua Courthouse in 2003.
She was on the local softball team with her sister Debbie. She enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, biking, camping music, doing hair and make up for others and driving her T-Top Firebird. She graduated from Logan High School in 1983. She obtained her cosmetology license from the La Crosse School of Beauty. She was a very hard worker who at one point owned her own cleaning business.
Diane is survived by her father Russell Lawrence (Vicki) Dresdow, her sister Debbie (John) Penfield, her son Jeff (Megan) Ellenz, and children, Easton, Adley, Brynley and Kyston; her daughter Ann Lorenz and children Shyann and Jayden; and her son Billy (Sandra) and their baby girl on the way.
Diane was preceded in death by her husband Walter, her brother Russell Jon Dresdow, her mother Karen Englebretson and her grandparents.
A celebration of her life will be held at 2:00 pm, Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at Olivet Beacon of Light Lutheran Church, 2100 Bainbridge Street, La Crosse. Pastor Jeremy Walloch will officiate. Visitation will be held at the church from 1:00 pm until the time of services.

    Such a beautiful person to leave this earth. I can only imagine how you were loved by many. I think back to the days of watching you Debbie and Russell many years ago but still have fond memories of the fun we had. Loved you all to the moon and back but as time passed too many connections were lost but memories are in my heart and mind forever. Love you Diane 🌺
