Lois Gartner Suicide Case
If there were red flags before Lois Gartner was killed in a double murder-suicide, her good friend believes she didn’t see them.
“She and I had talked many times in our lunch conversations and we both had the same belief. Like, ‘If someone ever laid a hand on me, I was gone,’ ” Marjean Maas says. “ ‘I do not stay for the kids. That’s not in me. I would never do that.’ ”
“I don’t think she knew this was coming. I truly believe that.”
Who is Greg Gartner?
A statement provided by Moodys Tax, where Lois’ husband, Greg Gartner, worked as a lawyer in the Edmonton office, said the company was “shocked and saddened by the tragic events regarding the loss of a colleague and his family. It is impossible for any of us to comprehend the heartbreaking event that occurred (Monday).”
An older child survived the incident and police confirmed a 911 call was made by family members.
Maas remembers Lois as whip-smart, but kind and funny; independent, but intuitive about others.
She was devoted to her two kids and chose to stay home with them, said Maas. She had a huge heart for animals, and pictures of her dogs — one of whom was also shot and killed — filled her social media pages. For her birthday earlier this year, she asked people to donate to an Australian wildlife charity that helped animals affected by the fires there.
