Gloria Licht Novack passed away at peace on Oct. 9, 2007, at the age of 79.

Matriarch of the Novack and Licht families, Gloria’s life was a brilliant illumination and unflagging masterwork of love, friendship, stewardship, and philanthropy. A 45-year resident of North Lake Tahoe, Gloria was co-founder of the Lake Tahoe Music Festival, the Lake Tahoe Music Festival Education Outreach program to the Tahoe-Truckee schools, and the North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation.

Her passing cannot diminish the light she brought to so many people, whether to family or to friends, whether to Judaism or to the arts. Her indefatigable energy will persist and perpetuate within all of those who survive her and were transformed by her enthusiastic love of living and the countless good works she accomplished.

A memorial service will be held for Gloria on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2007 at the North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation in Tahoe Vista.

Her family requests that in lieu of flowers memorial donations be made to the Lake Tahoe Music Festival at Box 62, Tahoe City, CA 96145.
