Diane E. Scanlon

February 2, 2017

Diane Elizabeth Scanlon, 55, of Eau Claire, passed peacefully in her home on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017.

Diane was born Oct. 16, 1961 to Warren and Virginia (Eaton) Scanlon at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She was a proud graduate of Eau Claire North High School and continued her education at Chippewa Valley Technical College. After graduating, Diane moved to Dallas, Texas, where she worked for Fina Oil. Diane moved back to Eau Claire in 1995 to be closer to family and worked for many years at United Healthcare. Diane was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2006 but continued working part-time at En Avant School of Dance.

Diane was an avid knitter, constantly creating beautiful projects such as scarfs, mittens, and hats for anyone and everyone she could share them with. She was a devoted fan of the Eau Claire North Basketball and Dance Teams and could always be found in her favorite spot taking photos of both the dancers and players. Diane’s heart and legacy are rooted in her time spent supporting and encouraging her dancing “gurlies” at En Avant. She loved her dance family and was always delighted to watch them further their dance careers, even after they had left the studio. Diane will forever be remembered for her warm smile and her heart-to-hearts with dancers and teaching staff.

Diane is survived by her mother Virginia Scanlon of Eau Claire; her brother Warren “Joe” Scanlon; her children Cory and Carly Sigears; and her beloved granddaughter Willow Elizabeth Sigears.

Diane was preceded in death by her father Warren Scanlon and her cherished dog Wilson.
