Diane Marie Boman, passed away peacefully on Friday May 15th while at her home in Oak Grove, MN with many of her family by her side while in the 72nd year of her life journey.
Diane was born in St. Paul, MN on November 20th 1942, as the 2nd of 7 children to Gwendolyn and Dale Milbradt. In the years shortly after her birth the family moved to Ogilvie where Diane grew up and graduated from Ogilvie High School in 1960.
After graduating High School she took the journey to the big city of Minneapolis where she got a job, rented a house, and enrolled in business school. During this journey she became very close with a very special guy, Herbert Boman, the two were united in marriage on September 28th 1963. Together they lived in North East Minneapolis, until 1978 when they moved into a house in Isanti where they had more room for the boats, snowmobiles, and dirt bikes which are just some of the hobbies they enjoyed doing together along with camping and traveling.
Diane was always a hard worker and went to work for Hide & Tallow as an Office Manager for many years. When the company was purchased by Darling Companies she was promoted to Plant Manager where she worked until Darling Companies closed. She continued to work at various other jobs until she decided it was time to fully retire in 2013.
In 1995 she purchased her current home in Oak Grove, MN. One of her true passions was gardening and keeping her lawn perfectly manicured. Her most favorite thing was spending time with family and keeping traditions going year after year and passing these traditions onto her children and grandchildren. There was no denying how important her 5 amazing grandchildren were to her. She was very active in all of their hobbies, sports, and adventure. She also had all of this same pride and joy in her daughter and son along with their spouses. She was very proud of her family. She also loved antiquing, the casino, traveling, going to the spa, “girls days” or weekends, movie nights, dinner dates, garage sales, bon fires, or whatever you could dream up. Her heart and home were open to anyone and everyone who crossed her path in life, there were no strangers, just people she hadn’t had time to visit with yet.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Herb, son Mark, brothers Gary and Craig, nephews Joe and John, and all of her in-laws.
She is survived by; daughter Roxanne (Bob) Ott; son Sean (Karie); grandchildren, Kaylianna, Garret, Evan, Joshua, and Paige; sister Cheryl (Mike) Peterson; brothers, Brian (Brenda); Bradley (Vicki), and Kris Milbradt; 11 nieces and nephews and 12 great nieces and nephews.
She was a fighter right up until the very end and still ready for an adventure. Even though it might be hard for all of us to accept, right now she is on her most favorite adventure ever. So today, please don’t be sad, but rather be glad, that Diane definitely gave life all she had.
