(Lawrence) Gliwski, 77, of 93 Effingham Road, Ossipee, N.H., a native and longtime resident of Adams, peacefully passed away Thursday afternoon, November 14, 2013, at her daughter's home. She was born in Adams on December 13, 1935, the daughter of the late Edward B. and Jeannette I. (Kirby) Lawrence. She attended Notre Dame Elementary School, in Adams, and graduated from the former St. Joseph's High School, North Adams. Jeannine last worked as a Title I Teacher at the Cheshire Elementary School from 1976 until retiring in 1995 due to health complications. Prior to that, she was a Kindergarten teacher at the former Notre Dame School in Adams, and had worked for several years at the former Sprague Electric Co. and Paradise Electric.

Jeannine was an avid collector and designer of paper dolls. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend, and after struggling through Alzheimer's there is comfort in knowing she is now at peace. We will miss her.
