Lottie Margolis Hartnig

VALDOSTA — Lottie Margolis Hartnig, 92, born June 11, 1920, to Max and Fannie Margolis in Jacksonville, N.C., passed away March 27, 2013, from esophageal cancer.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Sydney, whom she met while he was stationed at Camp Lejune in Jacksonville. Lottie was a fun-loving, spirited individual who had an infectious smile and sharp sense of humor. Growing up, she worked in the family retail business and had a keen eye for fashion. After her husband retired, she went to work for Leon’s dress shop in Valdosta, Ga. She took great pride in her family and the family traditions, passing them on to her children and grandchildren. She was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She taught her children to be independent thinkers, to volunteer to help others, and to stand up for what they believed. Lottie moved to Tallahassee in July 2011, and had been living at Allegro Inspired Senior Living. Prior to that, she and Sydney had lived in Valdosta for 38 years.

She is survived by her three children, Maxine Small (Thomas) of Loganville, Ga., Lynda Hartnig of Tallahassee, Fla., and Richard Hartnig (Fern) of John’s Creek, Ga.; two granddaughters, Sarah Hartnig, Coral Gables, Fla., and Alissa Hartnig, Tacoma, Wash.; her sister, Bessie Schild, Hollywood, Fla.; two sisters-in-law, Ida Kaplan, New Haven, Conn., and Ellie Margolis, Hollywood Fla.; and one brother-in-law, Ralph Hartnig in Tamarac, Fla.

She was preceded in death by her three brothers, Maurice and Leon Margolis, Jacksonville, N.C., and Isaac Margolis, Hollywood, Fla.

Graveside services will be held Friday, March 29, 2013, at 2 p.m. in Sunset Hill Cemetery with Rabbi Moshe Elbaz officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Temple Israel, 511 Baytree Road, Valdosta, GA 31602; the American Cancer Society; or the Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., 301 East Tharpe Street, Tallahassee, FL 32303.
