Lois J. Costanza, age 86, of Maryville, TN and formerly of Forestville, MD for more than forty years, died of cancer on Thursday, May 23, 2019 in Millersville, MD. She was born in Washington, DC to the late Otis D. & Pauline McCauley Scott. Lois and her late husband of 60 years, Salvatore J. Costanza, raised their family in Forestville, MD, where she drove her girls and their friends to the pool and sporting events on a daily basis. She gave them “vocabulary lessons” along the way. After moving to Maryville with her beloved husband in 1994, she became an avid hiker and spent as much time as possible with dear friends on the trails of her beloved Great Smoky Mountains, trekking to her favorite waterfalls, naming all the wildflowers, and occasionally encountering black bears. The summit of Mt. LeConte was a favorite destination. Lois was known for her fierce independence, her impeccable housekeeping, keeping her Royal Oaks neighborhood free of trash, and her kind words to everyone she encountered—traits she maintained until her last day. She is survived by her 3 daughters; Teresa (Dan) Nolet of Taichung, Taiwan, Susan Kircher of Davidsonville, MD and Jean (Brian) Miller of Bowie, MD; her 6 grandchildren, Catherine Nolet, Andrea Nolet Martin, Bill V and Jodi Kircher, Chrysteena and Colin Miller; and 6 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Maurice E. and Otis D. Scott, Jr. In keeping with her wishes, no services are scheduled at this time. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to either Friends of the Smokies, P.O. Box 1660 Kodak, TN 37764 or Appalachian Bear Rescue, P.O. Box 364 Townsend, TN 37882 Condolences may be made by clicking the Memory Wall link on this page.

Teresa, Susie and Jeanie, I was so sorry to hear about your mom. I have so many fond memories of growing up across the street from you. I remember your mom made the best tuna salad sandwiches! She will be greatly missed. Love you all and miss our times in Berkshire! Love and prayers, Jane McBride Latta

Lois was a pleasure to know. She was an upbeat and pleasant lady, always having something nice to say about others. She loved meeting new people on the hiking trails. She introduced me to hiking and to Margaret Stevenson, a well known hiker the Smokies. They were very patient with me , trying to teach me the names and identifications of wildflowers. Lois was one of my hiking companions for years. I will continue to have fond memories of all our hiking adventures we had in the mountains! Jane Manning

Lois was one of the Mt. Calvary moms and my mom has fond memories of making costumes for the school plays. My favorite memory is going hiking in the Great Smokies as an adult with my kids and Lois. My kids were exhausted but Lois was not. We enjoyed our visit with Lois and Sal. My friend Suzie is a beautiful person and she gets her strength and humor from her mom. I drive to Tennessee often and will always think of Lois.
