Barbara A. (Grim) Dann
PLATTSBURGH — Barbara A. (Grim) Dann, 88 of Plattsburgh, passed away peacefully on Nov. 27, 2019 with her family by her side at CVPH Medical Center.
Barbara was born on Nov. 11, 1931 in Amsterdam, New York, the daughter of Frederick and Beatrice Grim.
Barbara attended college at SUNY Albany, where she graduated with a degree in teaching, and later earned her master’s degree from SUNY Canton. She began her 35-year teaching career at Saranac Central High School, where she taught business, retiring in 1987.
Barbara made her home in Saranac, where she became an active member of the Saranac United Methodist Church.
Her beautiful soprano voice graced the choir, and her kind and giving nature infused itself into many areas of church work. Barbara found great joy in spending time with her family and truly appreciated the small things in life, whether decorating her home or sitting quietly on her front porch. She will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know her.
Barbara is survived by four children, Michael Dann and his wife Leslie, William Dann and his wife Kathy, Sharron Dann Redmond, and James Dann and his companion Veronica Morrow; grandchildren, who affectionately knew her as Danny, Joshua Dann, Jennifer Dann, Valerie Anderson, Vanessa Pagan, Sarah Dann, Lydia Dann, Jessalyn Dann and Nathan Redmond; great-grandchildren, Connor, Sydney, Kylie, Addison, Riley, Hannah, Sophia, Quinlin, Natalie and Elijah; one sister, Janet Tyler; and several nieces and nephews. Barbara was predeceased by her parents, sister Beatrice Longtemps and brother Frederick Grim.
Barbara’s family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to her second family at the Victoria House, where she was well loved and taken care of.
A celebration of Barbara’s life was recently held at the Saranac United Methodist Church. Donations in her memory can be made to the Saranac United Methodist Church Memorial Fund. Burial will be at a later date and at the convenience of her family.
