Diane S. Wenzel

    Diane S. Wenzel of Cedar Grove, 79, died of cancer Sunday, Aug. 12, at her granddaughter’s home in Oconomowoc.
    Mrs. Wenzel was born in Milwaukee on May 31, 1939, to Joseph and Catherine Sauer Monfre.  
    She graduated from Riverside High School in 1957, and married Thomas Wenzel in Milwaukee on Nov. 23, 1957.
    The couple settled in Milwaukee, later moving to Glendale and Oostburg before moving to their home in Cedar Grove in 1993.
    Mr. Wenzel preceded his wife in death on Sept. 16, 2017.
     Mrs. Wenzel worked in purchasing and inventory control for Autotrol. Later, she and her husband operated Tim’s Custard, as well as the General Store at the Cedarburg Woolen Mill.  
    Upon moving to Cedar Grove, Mrs. Wenzel served as a lunch lady at St. Mary Catholic School in Belgium and volunteered at the Good As New Shop in Cedar Grove, pricing items for resale.  
    Her family said she had an amazing perennial garden and loved to watch the flowers bloom from her porch. Most of all, Mrs. Wenzel loved buying and selling antiques that she acquired at estate sales.
     Mrs. Wenzel is survived by her sons Jeffery of South Milwaukee and Paul (Cheryl) and Daniel, both of Cedar Grove; grandchildren Sophia, Joy, Julie, Joshua, Carolyn, Greg, Tim, Sarah, Stephen and Eric; and 10 great-grandchildren.
    She is further survived by her brother Joseph (Janice) Monfre of Pewaukee.
    Mrs. Wenzel was preceded in death by her husband Tom, brother Dennis Monfre and sister Marlene Fisher.
     Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 20, at the Chapel of the Flowers at Wisconsin Memorial Park in Brookfield.  Deacon Gerry Maleug will preside.  
    Visitation will be at the chapel Monday from 9:30 a.m. until the service.
     Memorials are suggested to Divine Savior Parish.
     Eernisse Funeral Home in Belgium is handling the arrangements.
