Nancy J. Gran
Nancy, formerly of Sioux City, Iowa, died Saturday morning, January 22, 2022, at her home at Newton Village.
Nancy Joan Gran, 90, the daughter of Verle I. and Olive Lucille (Fisher) Morehead, was born March 12, 1931, in LeMars, Iowa. She was a proud graduate of Sioux City East High School and the University of Northern Iowa.
A time of remembrance and celebration will be held at a later date in Sioux City, and the Pence – Reese Funeral Home in Newton has been entrusted with the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be designated to St. Mark Lutheran Church in Sioux City or to a charity of your choosing. Burial will be in the Memorial Park Cemetery in Sioux City.
She taught 4th grade for several years in Rembrandt, Iowa. On May 29, 1954, Nancy was united in marriage with James R. Gran in Sioux City. Her husband's career allowed them to live in several cities in Iowa before moving to Maquoketa, Iowa in 1966, where they later owned and operated a supper club before retiring to Sioux City in the early 1990's. She devoted her life to her family, and will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
She was a member of St. Mark Lutheran Church, Chapter LX PEO and the Round Table Study Club, all in Sioux City.
Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, parents and brother.
