On Sunday, March 21, 2021, Diane Leslie Altman, loving mother, grandmother, and devoted friend, passed away. Diane was born on June 12th, 1943 in Providence, Rhode Island to Evelyn and Arthur Pettet. With her brother, John Pettet, she grew up loving the outdoors and animals. These passions followed her throughout her life as she could often be found hiking the canal trail with her beloved dogs or tending to her flower gardens. Diane received an undergraduate degree from Skidmore College in 1966 and went on to receive a master’s in social work from Rutgers University in 1986. She spent many years developing and running the Women’s Program at Princeton House where her compassion for others was paramount. Diane cherished her friendships and welcomed a visit from anyone at any time. Her door was never locked. She held the tight-knit community of Lambertville close to her heart.
Diane is survived by her two children Lucas P. Altaman and Morgan P. Altman, granddaughter Adeline Altman, daughter-in-law Ana Altman and son-in-law Nenad Radojicic.

A celebration of Diane’s life will be held in June 2021
Arrangements are under the direction of the Van Horn-McDonough Funeral Home, Lambertville, NJ (
