Diana Kowalke (Nee Chikowski)

March 28, 1944 — March 28, 2020


It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom, baba, sister, auntie and friend, Diana Kowalke on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at Pine Falls Hospital.  She was 75.

She was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Jean and her sister Vivian Schmidtke.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Arthur of 53 years, her children Kim (Jim), Colleen (Cats), and Terry (Paola), her grandchildren Ashley (Rob), Rowan, Adalia, and Tamaya, and great grandson Liam.  She also leaves her brother Roger (Jeanette), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins and friends.  She will also be missed by her beloved dog Whiskey.

Diana grew up in Lowland and moved to Winnipeg where she met and married Arthur in 1966.  The family moved to Gull Lake, living there until they built and moved to the family home in Thalberg.  She worked in Home Care until she became ill in 2006.  She was known for washing dishes at 3:00 a.m., feeding everyone and telling dirty jokes.  She was truly the most loving, caring woman.  During mom’s final year at the Pine Falls Hospital, she looked forward to our visits, trips to the park across the street and her cinnamon bun from Timmy’s.

It broke our hearts to see her be full of joy and life and then to crash into a depression.  For this reason the family is suggesting a donation may be made in Diana’s name to The Andrew Dunn Memorial Fund, c/o, Box 89, Oakbank, Manitoba R0E 1J0 in lieu of flowers.

A Celebration of Diana’s life will be held on Friday, March 13 at 11:00 a.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour, MB.
