Clarice Granz Obituary
Granz, Clarice
Clarice Granz, beloved mother and sister passed on May 15th, 2016. She was born March 10th, 1926 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and lived there until her marriage to Tom Ferguson of Fort Morgan, Colorado. They were married for 17 years, living in Colorado and California. She later married Val Granz of Anaheim, California. Clarice was a highly successful real estate agent, potter, and an excellent cook. While her drive and ambition took her far, she never lost sight of her most important goal, loving and caring for her children. Clarice was always upbeat and happy. She passed on that joy to everyone that met her, and touched many with her kindness and love. Her joy of living was not diminished by her battle with Alzheimer's, or the pain she felt every day. She continued her upbeat and joyous attitude until her end. Many were touched and comforted by her actions. She is survived by her three children, Tom Ferguson, Claire (Woody) Almond and Jay (Brian) Wenzel; Grandchildren, Samantha Wenzel, Zach Wenzel and Thomas Lee D'Agostini; Sisters Laverne (Don) Svitak, Joan (Jerry) Odden, 2 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. She was proceeded in death by her husbands, Tom Ferguson and Val Granz and her parents Carl and Martha Nelson. Service will be held 1pm June 12th at the Grandview Care Center.
