Diane Lynn Pohlhammer
Birth: Jan. 21, 1960
Death: Oct. 17, 1996
Jefferson County
Wisconsin, USA

My former sister-in-law...
...but forever my sister and friend.

Diane was married to my brother, Doug. They had two children together. After they divorced, she married Bradley Hackl and they had one child together. She initiated a divorce on October 1, 1996. Diane was a victim of domestic violence that ended in a tragedy on October 17, 1996.

Diane will always be remembered for the beautiful daughter and mother, the forever friend, and the wonderful sister that she was. Everything she did, she did for her kids; they always came first. She left behind her children, LaDina (15) who ended up wearing the homecoming dress they picked out together to the funeral instead, Olivia (11) who lost her best friend, Cody (8) who lost both of his parents to this tragedy; and her step-daughter, Letisha, who was always reminded that "there are no 'steps' in their home 'cept the ones that go upstairs and downstairs."

Also surviving her are her parents, Joseph Sr. and Irma Pohlhammer; her brothers and sisters-in-law, Joseph Jr. (Judy), Jeffrey (Sue), Gary (Colleen), and Daniel (Connie); her former husband, Doug Johnson; her former parents-in-law, Richard and Lorraine Johnson; her former brother-in-law, Mike (Jan) Johnson; her former sister-in-law, Laura Matten-Johnson Segrin; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends; her now-son-in-law, Zach, who she would have adored; and her grandchildren who will never be blessed with the opportunity to be held by her, planting and picking flowers with her, read to and sang to by her, and cooking with their grandmother... but they will all know the love that she had to share with everyone dear to her; it's reflected in the eyes, and lives in the hearts of her children.

She will be remembered, loved, and missed forever by all who knew her.

...speak out against domestic violence

Speaking out is the language of change"
