Visitation: Monday, June 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Service: Monday, June 29, at 1 p.m. Location: St. Stephen Ev. Lutheran Church in Horicon
Diane K. Billings on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, was escorted to her heavenly home exactly three months shy of her 80th birthday, September 24, 1940.
Diane was a faithful member of St. Stephen’s Ev. Lutheran Church in Horicon and also the Mayville American Legion Auxiliary.
Diane leaves a legacy of deliciously prepared food and her recipes, her love of music and dance, her constant search of the perfect hobby, and her sometimes twisted sense of humor. She fit the expression, you can take the girl out of the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the girl. She also believed you can dance the polish hop without a cocktail but it won’t be as much fun. She will be missed!
She has left to carry on the earthly journey, her husband Perry Billings of Theresa; her four children, Greg (Cyndi) Budahn, Connie Budahn, Jeff Budahn, and Scott (Toni) Budahn; and five amazing grandchildren, Megan, Michelle, Autumn, Ben, and Colin. She is also survived by her brother Ron (Barb) Loos of Rubicon. Next, she also has stepchildren Rick (Lisa) Billings, Shelly Billings-Feucht, Ron (Mary) Billings, Sherry (Kirk) Auchue, Kelly (Goeff) Woodard, Ryan (Kristin) Billings, Rustin Billings, Jeana (John) Hatch, and last but not least Robin (Ashley) Billings. She and Perry enjoyed their 25 grandkids and their activities, and celebrations around their seven great-grandkids. Finally, she leaves wonderful godchildren, nieces, nephews, and those fun in-laws and out-laws to carry on the mission of life—Serving God to the best of your abilities.
Preceding her to her heavenly home was her first husband Paulie Budahn of Theresa and bass fiddle legacy and her parents Norman and Ada (Druecke) Loos.
A visitation for Diane was held on Monday, June 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St. Stephen Ev. Lutheran Church in Horicon.
A funeral began at 1 p.m. with the Rev. Daniel Seehafer officiating. Interment followed at St. Mathias Ev. Cemetery in the Town of Theresa.
