Charmaine Lightner

April 21, 1941 — October 30, 2021

Charmaine (Strait) Lightner, 80 of Columbus Ohio (formerly of Hundred, WV), was reunited with her husband Philip, of 60 years, after passing away at home on October 30, 2021.
She was born April 21, 1941, in Glen Dale, WV to the late Stanley and Lena (McCullough) Strait.
She grew up in Aleppo Twp., Greene County, PA and was a member of West Greene High School class of 1959. Charmaine enjoyed being a homemaker and working and volunteering alongside Philip. Where there was one, there was the other. She enjoyed trips to the Amish Country, Boston and visiting her sister in-law Wilda. She was a long-time member and volunteer at the Hundred United Methodist Church. Charmaine loved browsing in bookstores, listening to music, reading, and going out for lunch. She spent her weekend afternoons cheering on her favorite football teams or watching golf. She also kept a daily diary since 1973.
She will be deeply missed by her daughter, Kelley (David) Caprio of Worthington, OH, granddaughter, Lena (Lewis) Raibley of Brookline, MA, grandson, Domenick of Columbus, OH, her brother, Don (Francis) Strait, sister in-laws, Shirley Higginson, Ruth Ann Sincavage (Chuck) and Wilda Kocher.
