Dianna K. Bellin
Dianna Kay Bellin (Faul, nee Krahn), 72, died on November 28, 2019, at Little River Hospital, Vero Beach, Florida, after complications from a brief illness.
Dianna was born May 24, 1947 to the late Ervin and Marie (nee Kreutzinger) in Sheboygan, WI. A native of Beechwood, WI., Dianna graduated from Kewaskum High class of 1965 and made numerous friends from her early work at West Bend Company, as proprietor of the Bar-N-Annex restaurant in rural Campbellsport and in her later years in Florida.
She was married to Ferdinand “Butch” Faul and later to Donald Bellin. Nimble and petite, Dianna was a very skilled polka dancer; many were entertained by watching her and sister Karen perform at Krahn family weddings and other community celebrations. Dianna was crowned a Polka Queen and had a scepter, sash to show for it.
In addition to her love of live music, Dianna’s excellent short-term memory enabled her to easily retain dozens of patrons’ drink orders as she tended huge weekend crowds in the 1980s from behind the bar at her extremely popular Bar-N-Annex. Her employees remember her fondly. Enthusiastic and hard-working, you might have seen her smiling face most recently at collecting Florida tolls, Dollar tree, and Subway.
Those Dianna leave behind to cherish her memory include her eight siblings, Shirley Mull, of West Allis, Ellis “Ollie” Krahn, of Beechwood, Eleanor (Syl) Stern, of West Bend, Wesley (Sandy) Krahn, of Arizona, Donna Wimmer of North Carolina, Sylvester “Skee” (Jean) Krahn, of Beechwood, Neil (Barbara) Krahn, of Missouri, and Karen (Raymond) Borchardt, of Arizona; many other relatives and friends.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her four brothers, Ronald Krahn, Adrian Krahn, Gaylord Krahn, and Eugene Krahn; and three sisters-in-law, Monica Krahn, Ann Krahn, and Marjorie Krahn.
A funeral service in remembrance of Dianna and her brother Eugene will be held on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 3 p.m. at the Myrhum-Patten Funeral & Cremation Service, 215 Forest Ave., Kewaskum. Burial will follow at Beechwood Union Cemetery with military honors.
The family will greet relatives and friends at the funeral home on Thursday from 12:00 p.m. until 2:45 p.m.
