Angeline Light Obituary
LIGHT, Angeline Angeline Margaret Skocik Light entered eternal rest Thursday, December 28, 2017. She was born May 31, 1915, in Clarksburg, WV, the youngest of eleven children. Her parents, Ferdinand and Maria Skocik, were immigrants from Lipnicia, Slovakia, and preceded her in death. Though her life began in Clarksburg and Charleston, WV, for many years she resided in Covington, LaGrange, and Atlanta, GA. Her final years were spent in Mandeville, LA. She lovingly answered to many names daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She was a devoted wife and mother who was adored by her family, from the youngest to the oldest, and she was a devout and faithful servant of God. Angeline was married to Jack Light, who preceded her in death. After Jack's death, Angeline worked as a sales associate for Belk's Department Store in Covington and LaGrange, as well as Rich's Department Store until her retirement. In the next phase of her life she remained an influential and shining presence, who was actively interested and involved in the life of each member of the Light family. Angeline lived to the remarkable age of 102 years old, and upon becoming a centenarian, she received congratulatory messages from the President of the United States, and Senators, U.S. Congressmen, and Governors, representing WV, GA, and LA. This was all punctuated with an Apostolic Blessing from Pope Francis. Jack and Angeline had a loving marriage and raised five children, A. Ronald Light (Elisabeth Pelligrino), Paul Light (Antoinette Petito) (both deceased); Margaret Light (William Long, Sr.) (deceased); John Light (Ann McIntire); Lawrence Light (Jo Ann Hughes). Angeline has 14 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial mass at Caldwell and Cowan Funeral Home, 1215 Access Road, Covington, GA, Saturday, January 6, 12:00 pm, followed by a graveside service at Lawnwood Memorial Park, 1111 Access Road, Covington, GA.
