Diane Truttmann, nee Biehl, 74, of Belleville, IL, born March 30, 1950, in Belleville, IL, died Tuesday, April 30, 2024, at St. Paul Senior Community, Belleville, IL.

Diane will be fondly remembered as an amazing mother, talented hair stylist, a loving sister, aunt, Mammaw, and friend. She was a bold entrepreneur in her hometown of Belleville, IL, owning several businesses in the cosmetology industry. Diane spread beauty and a love for fashion and design in everything she touched.

Donnie, as called by those closest to her, had a passion for life and people. Her most enjoyable moments were spent with her large, close family and her daughter Cori, especially holidays and vacations. She liked adventurous travel but loved the beach most of all.

Following a life-altering accident in 2006, Diane remained a light to her family and friends.  For 18 years she continued to be a source of love, strength, and inspiration, especially to her daughter, son-in-law, and beloved grandsons. In her final days, she was constantly surrounded by her family and friends and was given great care by Vitas Hospice and St. Paul’s.  She will be greatly missed and never forgotten. We find peace knowing that she will continue her journey in the home Jesus has prepared for her in Heaven.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Marcellus and Aurelia, nee Buchmann, Biehl; and two brothers-in-law, Pat Schwartz and Charles “Chuck” Sabatino.

Surviving are her daughter, Cori (Jason) Stanczyk; two grandchildren, Benjamin and Calvin Stanczyk; three sisters, Margie Schwartz, Katherine (Richard) Gundlach, and Barbara Sabatino; a brother, Mark Biehl; Cori’s father, Bob Truttmann; and many dear niece, nephews.
