Lois Gnann

On September 4th, 2018, Lois Gnann passed away peacefully. She enjoyed her last days in beautiful Adirondack weather at the home she built with her family.

Lois loved living in the Adirondack mountains, moving to Tupper Lake in 1973 and climbing each of the 46 HighPpeaks shortly thereafter.

She welcomed any chance to spend time outdoors; rain, shine, or snow, with her husband (Jerry), boys (Abe, Jake, and Eli), and a Labrador Retriever at her side!

Lois was brought to this area not only for its beauty but also to pursue a teaching career at the Tupper Lake Schools.

Many local residents will remember her as their teacher, their fellow faculty member, their children’s teacher and perhaps their mentor.

She thrived on teaching and took great joy seeing the look of triumph on a student’s face as they exclaimed “Oh, I get it now!”

In lieu of flowers or donations to Lois’ family, please contribute to the Adirondack Foundation Alice and Paul Grulich Memorial Scholarship Fund which meant so much to her (www.adirondackfoundation.org/give-now).
