Diane Sue Kwiatkowski passed away on January 20th, following an extended battle with COVID-19.  Diane was born in Minneapolis on December 11, 1949 as the oldest child of Hazel and George Goranson.  She loved spending time with family, was active in her hobbies (stamping, baking, breakfast club) and especially loved spending time at the family cabin in northern MN during the summers as well as hanging out with her grandchildren and great grandchildren whenever she got the chance.

Diane is preceded in death by her husband (Jack), father (George) and granddaughter (Tamara).  She is survived by her mother Hazel Goranson; her siblings Denny (Claudia) Goranson, Debbie (Kenneth) Stanius and Dawnette (Paul) Shimek; her children Scott (Lisa) Swenson, Todd Swenson, Brian (Heather) Kwiatkowski and Jill (Paul) Krongard ; her grandchildren Tyler Swenson, Ashley Cromell, Aidan Kwiatkowski, Lilly Kwiatkowski, and Zoe Krongard   and by her great grandchildren Tegan and Tytus Swenson. Not to mention the numerous nephews, nieces, extended family and friends that she dearly loved.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date due to the current Covid risk level.
