Diane K. Rix Notice
Rix, Diane K. Of Erin, passed away peacefully on January 6, 2014, at the age of 80 after a year-long struggle with pancreatic cancer. Cherished daughter of the late Orra and Mildred Drake, born in Grand Rapids, MI on March 16, 1933. Beloved wife of John for 57 years. Treasured mother to Glenn of Atlanta, GA and David of Portland, OR and grandmother to 1st Lieutenant Jonathan Rix, USMC of Morehead City, NC and Miss Jillian Rix and Miss Lara Rix of Portland, OR. Also lovingly remembered by other family and friends, particularly those from Chenequa Country Club where she enjoyed golfing and socializing. Diane graduated with a BA in accounting from Michigan State University where she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Following graduation, she worked for National Cash Register and Fruehauf Trailer Company before beginning a family. A celebration of life gathering at Chenequa Country Club and private committal services at The Gardens of Stone Bank will be scheduled at a later date. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Ben George of Froedtert Hospital, the staff of the Cancer Care Center at Community Memorial Hospital, and the staff of AngelsGrace Hospice for their compassionate care. Because Diane was an avid reader, memorials to Town Hall Library, P.O. Box 158, North Lake, WI 53064 would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.
