Diane Marie Yeske, age 73, of Bangor WI, passed away peacefully on February 6th surrounded by her family.  She was born on May 9th, 1950 to Harold and Mary (Clements) Mashak and graduated from Bangor High School in 1968.  She married ElRay Dock in 1969 and they had two children.  They later divorced and she married Wayne Yeske in 1992.

Diane loved her Bangor community and was often seen walking her dog or bicycling around town, stopping often to chat with friends and neighbors.  She worked as a bank teller for most of her career and was friends with many of her co-workers and customers.  She retired from Coulee Bank in December 2016.  Diane always had a friendly smile for everyone and was loved by many.

She is survived by her husband Wayne, her son Eric (Kayla) Dock, her daughter Courtney (Bill) Dunnum Morrison, her grandchildren Morgan, Reese, Axel and Gunnar Dock, Grady Dunnum and Jackson Morrison, her sisters Carol (Mike) Mader, Ruth (Mike) Vanderploeg, Sylvia (Mike) Horstman, her brothers Brian (Carmen) Mashak, Eugene (Joanne) Mashak and Brode Mashak, a sister-in-law Nancy Thompson, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents and brother-in-law, Dave Thompson.

In memory of Diane’s brief but courageous battle with cancer, she wanted memorials to be made to Sunshine On The Trail, P.O. Box 312, Bangor WI, 54614.  Coulee Region Cremation Group is assisting the family.

      Eric and Courtney, I wanted to send my condolences. I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. I recently had connected with her on Facebook as I was trying to find information on you Eric. I was glad to chat with her. She shared with me that she was battling cancer. Losing parents is so extremely hard, lost both of mine in the last 4 years. Dad to cancer whose battle was 5 weeks, 3 days. My heart goes out to all of you ♥️

    Diane was such am energetic person. She would zoom down the street by my house and always gave me a big “Wave” and smiled. She will be missed by many. May she rest in peace.

      My sympathies to all the Mashak family, my old neighbors. Living just “across the alley”, from you all, I have many great memories of Diane. The last time I saw Diane she was on her bike heading down Commercial St, with a big smile on her face.
      Thinking of you all at this difficult time.
      Peaceful Rest Diane.
