Diane M. Stern (nee Reichert), age 77, of West Bend was called home to God on July 25, 2019. She was born on July 10, 1942 to the late Herbert and Florance (nee Schaefer) Reichert in West Bend, WI. She graduated in 1960 from West Bend High School. She married Ralph Stern in May 1971 at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church. Diane worked at Serigraph Sales for 40+ years and truly enjoyed her job and her co-workers.

She enjoyed a good night at the dirt track. Watching her husband and son race made her proud. She enjoyed trips to the casino, playing bingo and Sheepshead with card clubs. Ralph and Diane loved to polka and waltz together. Diane never met a piece of bakery she didn’t like except for Raisin Pie. Most of all, her true joy was loving and caring for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandson. She will be dearly missed by all who loved her.

Diane leaves behind her husband Ralph Stern; children, Jennie Bowles and Brian (JoAnn) Stern; grandchildren, Chad Stern, Tiara and Rena Bowles; one great-grandson Blake Stern; sisters, Darlene Plavec and Joanne (Dan) Heinecke; brother Curt Reichert; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, two nephews and her first husband Richard Ruhnke.

A Funeral Service for Diane will be held at 4:00 PM on Sunday July 28, 2019 at the Phillip Funeral Home Chapel (1420 W. Paradise Drive, West Bend, WI). A visitation will be held at the funeral home from 2:00 PM until the time of service.

The family would like to thank JoAnn Stern for her tender care and helpfulness
in her time of need.
