Diane L. “Hoot” Kolbow, age 62, of Lowell, died unexpectedly on Thursday, September 16, 2021 at Marshfield Medical Center in Beaver Dam.

Diane was born on April 27, 1959 in Hustisford, Wisconsin to Alton and Marjorie (Kohn) Lauersdorf.  She graduated from Dodgeland High School in 1977.  In May 1983, she was united in marriage with Michael L. Kolbow in Lebanon, Wisconsin.  Diane worked for Aunt Nellie’s, currently Seneca Foods, in Clyman for over thirty years.  She was a member of Salem Lutheran Church for many years and was the sextant of Lowell Cemetery for the past five years.  Diane was one of those people that could talk to anyone – and she did.  She was always happy and she had a contagious smile and laugh.

Diane was the loving mother of her two children, Pamela Kolbow of Lowell and Andrew Kolbow of Reeseville and she was also the loving grandma of Michel Kolbow.  She is further survived by her mother, Marjorie Lauersdorf of Lowell; her brother, James Lauersdorf (Mary Osterhoff) of Beaver Dam; her sister-in-law, Laurie (Mike) Martin of Watertown; nieces, nephews, other relatives, friends and her cats and dogs.  Diane was preceded in death by her father and her husband.
