Dian May Fuhrmann

May 8, 1933 — June 9, 2024


Dian May Fuhrmann, age 91, passed away peacefully on June 9, 2024 surrounded by her family.  She was born on May 8, 1933 to the late Carl and Estella (Ballhorn) Sass. She attended Kohler Grade School. Following graduation from Goodrich High School, Dian continued her education, graduating from Theda-Clark Nursing School. On June 6, 1953, she married the love of her life, Jerome Fuhrmann. Together, they raised four children: Pam, Karen, Glenn, and Lori.

Dian was known for her classy and stylish fashion, and she loved to shop for the latest clothes and accessories. She was an avid reader, and had a large collection of books that she shared with her family and friends. She enjoyed meeting with the Shoreline Women’s Club, a group who generously donated to various charities in the area.  She was also a member of St. Ann’s Society and the Catholic Women’s Charity Club. She assisted her husband in the family business, Fuhrmann Realty, for over 50 years. She was a devoted member of Holy Name Catholic Church, and currently, a member of St John Evangelist Catholic Church.  She loved spending time with her family, and was a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She was a beautiful person with a warm heart and caring soul, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Dian is survived by her children, Pam (Wade) Rickmeier, Karen Wiczek, Glenn (Barbara) Fuhrmann, all of Sheboygan, and Lori (Ken) Udovich of Kohler.  She is further survived by her grandchildren Abby (Eric) Hawkinson, Andrea (Tim) Terry, Amy (Matt) Schmidt, Matt Rickmeier, Joseph Fuhrmann, Grace Fuhrmann, Carter Udovich, Elly Udovich, Evan Udovich, and Natalie Udovich; great-grandsons Cameron Schmidt, Maxwell and William Hawkinson, and Tyson and Reese Terry; her brother Carl (Wanda) Sass and their family, and sisters-in-law Gladys Kolb, Patricia (Peter) Sesing and their families.
