Obituary for Diann Margaret Kosakoski

Diann Margaret Kosakoski, 75 of Boyd, Wisconsin passed away Saturday, August 24th, 2019 at home with her family at her side.
Diann was born on April 24, 1944 the daughter of John A. and Elaine H. (Eslinger) Kosakoski in Stanley, Wisconsin. She was the eldest of eight children.

Diann grew up in the Town of Edson and attended Liberty Hill School and graduated from Stanley-Boyd High School in 1962. Diann married Richard Lyle Gilles and to this union they had five children. Diann was employed at Lotz Manufacturing, Stanley Hospital and the Northern Wisconsin Center until her retirement.
Diann had a deep love and devotion for her Catholic Faith. Above all things, it was the center of her life. What she most appreciated about her Catholic faith was the Body and Blood of Christ she received in Holy Communion especially at Sunday Eucharist. While on earth, this was as close as she could be with her Savior. As one mother to another, she had a loving devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary who helped to guide her throughout her life.
She enjoyed her grandchildren especially at her home which was affectionately known as “Grandma’s Boot Camp”. She loved family gatherings with a good bonfire, gardening, horseback riding, traveling and quilting. Diann was a lifelong member of All Saints Parish, worshiping God at her parish church first in Edson and then in Boyd.
Diann is survived by her children: Karen (Adam) Leute of Divide, CO; Tom (Julie) Gilles of Eau Claire, WI; Monsignor Richard W. Gilles of Tomah, WI; Jill (Tom) Pomietlo of Chippewa Falls, WI; and LeAnn Gilles of Menomonie, WI; Grandchildren Zach and Garrett Leute, Alexis, Rachael, Olivia and Luke Pomietlo; sisters Denise (Joe) Thornton of Chippewa Falls; Dawn (Tom) Hoffman of Manitowoc; Kim (Rudy) Klisiewicz of Stanley; Teres (Rusty) Gindt of Boyd and her brother Tony (Geri) Kosakoski of Cadott; sister- in-law Lorraine Kosakoski of Altoona; and many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents John and Elaine Kosakoski; brothers James and John Kosakoski; sister-in-law Juanita Kosakoski and a nephew Kevin Kosakoski.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Boyd, WI with Monsignor Richard Gilles as celebrant.
