Goldie Mae Lichti

Posted: Friday, April 21, 2000

Longtime Alaska resident died Tuesday, April 18, 2000, at the South Peninsula General Hospital in Homer. She was 94.

Memorial services will be at 2 p.m. Monday at the First Presbyterian Church in Anchorage. Dr. David L. Bleivik will officiate. Interment will be at the Angelus Memorial Park in Anchorage at a future date.

Ms. Lichti was born Nov. 22, 1905, in Thurman, Colo., to Sam and M. Katie Lichti. She was the second of eight children.

Shortly after her birth, the family moved to Nebraska where she was raised.

She came to Alaska in 1957 where she made her home with her sister and brother-in-law Florence and Chlorus L. Pointer. In 1958, she went to work for the Anchorage School District as a cook; she retired in 1983. She then worked at the Aurora Preschool which was owned and operated by her sister Florence.

When the school closed in 1992, due to Florence's ill health, Goldie cared for her younger sister until her death in 1993. After Florence's death, Goldie moved into the brand new Chester Park Senior Housing Complex in Anchorage.

In 1998, she moved to Anchor Point, where she made her home with her nephew Vaughn Pointer and his family.

The family wrote, "Goldie will be remembered for her indomitable spirit, courage, generous nature and strong Christian faith. Also, for her loyal service to the First Presbyterian Church in Anchorage and her many years as their toddler and nursery care attendant. Hers was a life well lived."

Ms. Lichti is survived by her brother, Leonard Lichti of Heston, Kan.; 21 nieces and nephews, and numerous great-, and great-great-nieces and nephews, the most recent being Nathanael Vaughn Corey who was born Feb. 27, 2000. She loved each one.

Memorial contributions may be sent to the Mission Fund at the First Presbyterian Church, 616 West 10th Ave., Anchorage AK 99501.

Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.
