Margaret (Johnson) Lightner, 95, Hollidaysburg, died Sunday at the Presbyterian Village at Hollidaysburg.
She was born in Juniata, daughter of the late Harvey R. and Nannie I. (Knepper) Johnson.
Surviving are a daughter, Linda G. Lightner and husband, Joseph Fisher, of Glen Mills; four grandchildren: Gailee Murphy Gaither and husband, Chris, of San Antonio, Texas, Melanie Murphy Moran and husband, Alfredo, of New Orleans, La., and Madeleine and Charlotte Fisher of Glen Mills; three great-grandchildren: Delaney Gaither and Joshua and Caleb Moran; and her dear friend and companion, Bob McIntyre of Hollidaysburg.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Randolph D. Lightner; a daughter, Sharen Lightner Murphy; and an infant son, William Randolph Lightner.
Margaret was a 1934 graduate of Altoona High School and was a resident of Hollidaysburg for 62 years. For many years, she was employed at the Little Shop, where she was able to indulge and express her love of fashion. She outfitted many a well-dressed client and cut a stylish figure herself around town.
Many will remember Mrs. Lightner for her feisty and outspoken demeanor, which no doubt contributed to her longevity. She lived with vigor and expected a high standard of behavior from those around her.
Interment will be private. A celebration of Margaret's life will be held at a date in the near future. Arrangements are by Plank, Stitt & Stevens Funeral Home, 421 Montgomery St., Hollidaysburg.
To honor Mrs. Lightner's lifelong love of animals, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society, 1837 E. Pleasant Valley Blvd., Altoona, PA 16602.
