Allison Lockwood, 96, of Lancaster, PA, died on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at Willow Valley Communities. Born in Jackson, MI, she was the daughter of the late Louis H. and Alice Hawes Lockwood.

She was a graduate of Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI. She had been employed by the American Red Cross in service to military families, but more recently by the former Community Hospital of Lancaster as a Diet Technician.

A longtime and active member of First Presbyterian Church, Miss Lockwood served as a deacon, and was a member of the Chancel Choir and the Women’s Circle. She was an honorary member of the Women’s Garden Club of Lancaster.

Allison loved sewing, and made clothing for herself as well as many of her family members. While she enjoyed her activities, there was nothing more important or cherished than her family.

She is survived by nieces and nephews, and was predeceased by a sister, Susan L. Fishbeck and a brother, David G. Lockwood.

The family wishes to extend a sincere thank you to the staff of Meadow Ridge and The Glen at Willow Valley for the dedicated, compassionate care she received.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a Memorial Service at First Presbyterian Church, 140 E. Orange St. Lancaster, PA 17602 on Monday, December 16, 2019 at 11:00 AM with the Rev. Dan Snyder officiating. Friends may greet the family from 10:30 AM until the time of service. Private interment in the Conestoga Memorial Park will take place at the convenience of the family.

Please omit flowers. If desired, contributions in Miss Lockwood’s memory may be sent to the Music Department of the church at the address above.

I first met Allison in the early 1980’s when we both volunteered in the gift shop at Landis Valley Farm Museum. Later we connected in a caregiver support group. I really got to know her after 1988 when I joined The Lancaster County Women’s Garden Club. She was a very active member over the years. She chaired and worked on various committees, sang in the ensemble,and shared her wonderful talent of making beautiful items for our bazaars.I still cherish a Christmas tree skirt she made me of various quilted material and satin ribbon. She was a selfless,dignified,gracious lady of the old school. I am proud to have known her and to have called her mentor and friend.

I treasure my afternoons with Allison at the Fulton Theater and the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra concerts. We had so many similar interests and lived in the same building at Willow Valley.
I also admired her dress making ability. It was just part of Allison to do everything “just right”.
