May the God of all comfort continued to strengthen the Gnann family during this time of deep sorrow. God keeps those who have fallen asleep in death in His memory because they are precious in his eyes “Psalm 116:15” and “John 5:28,29”

My memories of Lib throughout the years has always been one of a smile and an upbeat comment and a word of good cheer. No matter her circumstances she was more interested in your wellbeing. Such a wonderful lady and her and Jack were a " one of a kind " couple. Peace and comfort to all the family.

Mrs. Gnann was like a second mother to me. When my folks needed to take my younger brother to Augusta Medical Center for treatment, the Gnann household was always open for me to stay as long as needed. I love you, Lib! Rest in peace. And I love you, Janet, Pat, and John as well!

Will be missed at pool aerobics. She always had a smile.

Lib was always a joy to be around. We will miss her. She was a member of our pool class at Candler on Tuesday and Thursday.

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.
