Mount Pleasant – Dianna Lynn Kaiser (nee: Wickert), age 62, passed away at home on Saturday, March 11, 2023.
Dianna was born in Milwaukee, WI on November 30, 1960 to Bernard and Sharon (nee: Holeton) Wickert. The family moved to Kenosha when Dianna was young. She graduated from Tremper High School. Dianna began her work career in the world of auto dealership as a warranty administrator at Don Hutson Chevrolet. She was one of the first females in the area to become a service manager. It was here that she met John Kaiser, and they were married on June 10, 1989. When their daughter, Trish, was born, Dianna took time away from her career to be a stay home mother. Dianna was a loving, dedicated mother and wife. When she decided to get back into the workforce, Dianna became an apartment manager for almost 15 years. As with her time in the auto dealership industry, Dianna was devoted to the apartments she managed. One of the favorite things for Dianna was to attend Summerfest in Milwaukee with her father, Bernie. They started this ritual with the first year of Summerfest, and this became an annual event for them. The family loved going to Arrowhead Campground in the Wisconsin Dells, making many wonderful memories. Dianna loved listening to music, and the louder the better. She also loved being in her garden, growing many different vegetables and flowers, including her favorite, yellow daisies.
