Loved and adored mother, aunt, and friend. Lila was born and lived in Los Angeles her entire life. She grew up in Temple City, then moved and attended Fairfax High School and UCLA, before marrying her husband of forty-five years, Irwin Diamond, who passed away in 1994.

She was a devoted daughter to her parents, who emigrated from Belarus and Lithuania. With his three brothers, her father, Isaac Hoffman, founded Hoffman Brothers Meatpacking Company, which became the "Hoffy" brand.

Her passion was reading, and she devoured books-history, politics, literature, and detective novels. She was a crossword puzzle enthusiast who never let a day go by without attacking the challenges the L.A. Times bestowed upon her. She loved politics and followed the news avidly, enthusiastically supporting history-making leaders from JFK to Obama. We are thankful that she lived to see the first African-American president.

She leaves behind her twin children, Linda Raznick and Larry Diamond, her son-in-law Rob Raznick, and her many nieces and nephews, to whom she was also devoted, and they to her.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, March 16, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Hillside Memorial Park.
