Margarete Lipton (Queissner), 97, passed peacefully at home with her family on April 1, 2019. Margarete was born in Tzschochau, Low Silesia (Germany). She was a dear, loving mother who will be greatly missed by her family and friends. We will miss her beautiful smile.
Margarete is survived by her daughters, Marlyn Lipton and Darlene Younts (David); her granddaughters Johanna Rippy (Patrick) and Amanda Younts; and her great-granddaughter, Sage; all of Arkansas. She leaves behind a large family of nieces and nephews in Germany. Margarete was preceded in death by her husband, MSG Frank Lipton of Arkansas; her parents Selma & Robert Queissner; her sisters Martha Rossdeutcher (Hermann), Erna Drittich (Fritz), and Lena Succow (Helmut); her brothers Eric and Willie Queisssner; all of Germany.
Margarete spent her life in service to others, always caring for others before herself. She was a magnet to children, who gathered around her whenever she entered a room. She worked for Teletype and the Pulaski County School District in Arkansas, in addition to her various jobs in the US and Europe. She was a member of Baseline Christian Church and volunteered at the church and loved each member as a part of her family in Christ.
A special thanks to Brandi Phillips, who provided her care in her last years, and who loved her as a grandmother. A graveside service will be 12:00 P.M., Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at the Little Rock National Cemetery in Little Rock. Please send donations to your favorite animal rescue in lieu of flowers.
