Gail  Beiter
Gail (Tomm) Beiter, a retired teacher, amazing wife, incredible mother, and extraordinary grandmother, died suddenly on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
Born September 19, 1938 in Buffalo, New York, to Leroy and Helen (Janke) Tomm, Gail worked her way through Buffalo State College to become an elementary teacher, shaping the lives of many during her 34-year career in the Tonawanda Central School system, retiring in 1996. She spent her retirement enjoying her family and lunching with her "lucky ladies" retired teacher friends.
She is survived by her husband of 58 years and best friend, Vincent Beiter; daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and Kevin Krupski; and son and daughter-in-law ,Kyle and Krista Beiter. She also lives on as the spunky Grandma of Olivia, feisty Grammy of Holly, helpful Grandma of Drew, and thoughtful Grandma of Emily (adjectives chosen by her grandchildren).
A celebration of her life will be held at New York Beer Project, 6933 S. Transit Road, Lockport, on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, the day before her 81st birthday, from 5 PM to 8 PM. Friends and family are invited to honor her life, well lived. There will be no prior visitation.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to the Make-a-Wish Foundation or Salem United Church of Christ, Tonawanda, NY.
