VanParis, Dianne M.

Bay City, Michigan



Our loving mother, grandmother, and sister passed away peacefully on the morning of Friday, September 28, 2018 at the Brian’s House in Essexville, Michigan. Dianne was born to the late Albin J. and Rosemary (LeVasseur) Kukla on May 4, 1952 in Bay City, Michigan. She has resided in the Bay City area her entire life and has been a member at Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish – St. Stanislaus Church for numerous years. Her family will always remember her for her handy skills and her drive to do things herself. She could always figure out a way to make something out of nothing. Dianne enjoyed sewing and carpentry work. Her biggest joy in life were her grandsons and the rest of her family.


Left to cherish her memories are two daughters, Renee Botkins and Rashael Perko; three grandsons, Johnathon Botkins, Jordan Perko, and Devin Perko; two brothers and three sisters; Dennis (Gale) Kukla, Dale (Ann) Kukla, Debra (Dave) Kukla-Daroczy, Denise (Thomas) Smith, and Darla (Mark) Yurgaites; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and several loving cousins. Dianne is welcomed into Heavens Gate’s by her parents, Albin J. and Rosemary (LeVasseur) Kukla; and two brothers, David and Daniel Kukla.


There will be a Funeral Mass held at Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish – St. Stanislaus Church on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Celebrant will be Fr. Rick Filary. There will be an hour of visitation taking place from 9:00 a.m. until the time of Mass at the church. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to “Wishes of the Family.”
