Lena J. Altman

Lena Johnson Altman of Raeford died October 25, 2018 at the SECU Hospice House in Smithfield.
She raised her three children, many times alone as her husband fulfilled his obligation to our country. Following moves to Germany, Georgia and Oklahoma, the Altman family settled in Raeford, which became their forever home. She was very proud of her home and her impeccable taste in decorating. Her cooking skills and meal preparation were always a joy to her and she loved entertaining. She loved gardening, both vegetables and flowers. Each summer she spent hours canning and freezing fresh vegetables that she shared selflessly with her friends and family. She also enjoyed knitting, crocheting and sewing. She was a friend to all, a true southern lady and a woman who provided never-ending devotion to her family.
She became a member of the First Baptist Church in 1964 and attended faithfully until her health declined in 2013. She retired from her position of operations officer at Southern National Bank in 1984. Long before the existence of "personal bankers" she assumed that role with ease and commitment.
She was born in Dillon County, South Carolina on May 13th, 1923 to the late Dal and Georgia Johnson. Lena ("Johnnie" to many) is survived by a son, Bill Altman Jr. and wife Carol of Holden Beach; a daughter, Debi Dallas and husband Gerald of Fayetteville; five grandchildren, David Wright, Terral (Christina) Altman, John Paul (Natalie) Altman, Amy (Michael) Armstrong and Kaitlyn (Andrew) Epps; 10 great-grandchildren; and a sibling, Virginia J. Meekins of Latta, South Carolina.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Major (Retired) William T. Altman, a daughter, Belva Gayle Altman, a son-in-aw, Ivan Gene Collins Jr., a grandson, Andrew Gene Collins, her parents and two brothers.
A visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at Raeford First Baptist Church. The funeral will follow at noon in the church with the Rev. Tom Lee officiating. Burial will follow in the Raeford Cemetery.
The family will receive friends at the visitation and following the graveside service.
