Diana Christina Lertzman (nee Busin) of Moreland Hills, died Nov. 7, 2019 at age 61. Diana was born on May 10, 1958 in New Castle, Pa. She was a graduate of Mohawk High School. Diana was a brilliant book publicist who specialized in promoting her husband, Rick’s books. She was a devoted fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers as was her beloved grandfather. Her husband Rick was a lifelong Browns fan, so she loved to tell friends and family that they had a “mixed” marriage. Diana also worked as a financial analyst for General Electric. She enjoyed design, art, writing, travel, event planning and cooking.
Diana is survived by her husband Rick Lertzman; children, Jason McGarvey (Sonja) of Deltonna, Fla., and Aaron McGarvey (Anatalie) of Bangor, Maine; and grandchildren, Andrew and Alyssa McGarvey. She was the stepmother of Matthew Lertzman (deceased) and Tommy Lertzman (deceased).
