Lorraine Mae Light, 78, of Mt. Gretna, PA, passed away on May 2, 2024, in Lebanon, PA. Lorraine was born on June 22, 1945, in Lebanon, PA, to the late Oscar and Dorothy Light.

She is preceded in death by her father, Oscar Light, mother, Dorothy Light, and sister, Barbara Hafey. Lorraine was a versatile individual with a rich and fulfilling life. She was a theater major at Penn State University, before starting her career as an assistant buyer for Orbach's department store in New York City. She then dedicated several years as a homemaker while serving as a Mt. Gretna Heights Treasurer. She later pursued her passion for accounting and became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Outside of her professional life, Lorraine had a variety of hobbies that brought her joy. She excelled as a star field hockey player in high school and played tennis and skied for many years, had a deep love for theater, and became an award-winning photographer in her later years. She was a long-time Mt. Gretna resident, and enjoyed time on her porch and at the beach with her family.
