Obituary for Lois Anne Gezo

Lois Anne Tapolcai Gezo passed away quietly and peacefully on Sunday, September 29,2019, with her family by her side. She was born in Homestead, Pennsylvania and graduated from Carlow College in Pittsburgh, PA with a degree in biology. She married Joseph Michael Gezo in 1974 and together they moved to southern California where she attended California State University at Fullerton studying mammalogy. She worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History and completed several environmental impact reports for the state and environmental groups. Her lifelong interest in birding took root there in the Mojave and Colorado Deserts where she did her research, hiked and camped. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin and then in Peachtree Corners, Georgia, she became an active education advocate volunteering at Peachtree and Simpson Elementary Schools and Norcross High School but especially instilling in her children a lifelong love of nature, science and math.
She enjoyed gardening, hiking, camping, road trips,cross-stitch crafts and the beach, but her family, birdwatching and reading were her passions. She was a member of Mary Our Queen Catholic Church in Peachtree Corners, GA, the Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy. She is survived by her husband, her children, Joseph C. (Stevie) Gezo of Alexandria, VA and Mary E. (Mark Sims) Gezo of Atlanta, GA, her favorite grandson, J. Sagan Gezo and her brother, William E. (Margaret) Tapolcai, Jr. of Manassas, VA.
Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated on Thursday, October 3, 2019, at Mary Our Queen at 10:15AM, followed by burial at Honey Creek Woodlands in Conyers, GA at 12:30PM. Friends and family will be welcomed at the Gezo home starting at 4:00PM.
