Lenore Light


LIGHT: Lenore Light on January 3, 2019, in Pittsburgh. Dedicated wife of the late Harvey F. Light; beloved mother of Dina Ranade of Beach Haven, N.J., David H. (Mara) Light of Pittsburgh and Debra Light of Los Angeles, Calif.; devoted grandma of Evonna, Indya and Devan Ranade and Livia Light; daughter of late Morris and Dora Leon; sister of the late Steven Leon; also survived by many loving cousins, family members, and loyal friends. Lenore was an energetic matriarch who found her greatest joy in being together with her dear family. From the beginning, after graduating from Taylor Allderdice High School in 1954, she put her family first. She helped raise her younger brother in the face of her mother’s untimely death and learned how to care for others while fostering a lifelong positive outlook. Lenore was certified in baby holding and massage for young and distressed infants. She used this healing gift with her children, grandchildren, friends, strangers and even school project robot babies. She was a proud graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Class of 1972 from the College of General Studies. Sharing her giving nature with others, she made homemade soup and managed The Yogurt Experience on Fifth and Meyran avenues for 11 years. Lenore was the epitome of someone who lived her life with meaning, touching many other lives with her kind, accepting presence along the way. She will forever be loved, missed, and treasured.
