Obituary for Diana Pittman (Washington)

Dianna Washington Pittman was born on February 11, 1947. Affectionately known as “Di”. Di was born to the parentage of Isiah and Leona Lipps Washington. As she was their only child, Di had no biological siblings. She was baptized and raised as a member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church.

Dianna graduated from Our Lady of Grace high school in 1964. After high school, Dianna relocated to Los Angeles, California and enrolled at the University of Southern California where she earned her Bachelors degree. For several years, she was gainfully employed. During this period, she became homesick and moved back to Reserve.

She was united into holy matrimony to Lawrence “Potty” Pittman and they were the parents of one son; Michael Andrew, and one daughter:, Joely Kim. Di utilized her degree and began employment with the now defunct Public Health Hospital. Once the hospital closed, she moved on to the Social Security Administration office as an Appeals Agent. Because of Di’s acute curiosity and determination, her administrators decided to enroll her in a paralegal program. Upon completion, she supervised employees in her department.

After 35 years, Di decided she needed a change so she retired from the Social Security Administration. Not one to sit idly by and an avid reader, she sought employment with the St. John the Baptist Parish Library system and became a library assistant at the Garyville branch.

For health reasons, Di left the library system and decided to enjoy a complete retirement. One of her favorite activities was watching her beloved New Orleans Saints play football. Additionally, she was an excellent seamstress, a trait she inherited from her mother. Di thoroughly enjoyed her annual reunions with several of her high school classmates, Ronnie, Juanita and Louise.

On Tuesday, September 17th, at East Jefferson Hospital, God dispatched his angels to transport his daughter to her heavenly home. She leaves to cherish her memories, her devoted children Michael (Raven) and Joely (Melvin Howard), 4 grandsons, Michael, Jr., Ryan, Jacolby and Milan, honorary son whom she reared as her own, Andre G. Lipps, a devoted cousin, Sybil Lipps, a best friend, Ethel M. Stewart, numerous sister-in-laws, brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of other relatives and friends. Di was preceded in death by her parents, Isiah and Leona Washington, and her beloved husband, Lawrence Pittman.

Relatives and friends of the family, also priest and parishioners of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and all neighboring churches are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church 772 Hwy 44, Reserve, LA on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 10:00 a.m., Father Christopher Amadi, Celebrant.
