Annice Blatt Nanninga of The Woodlands, Texas died peacefully on November 29, 2013.

Annice was a native Texan, born in San Antonio on December 13, 1932, as she often said, "Across the street from the Alamo." She grew up in the Houston area, graduated from LamarHigh School in 1950 and attended Southern Methodist University where she joined Delta Gamma sorority.

In many ways, Annice lived what should be an ordinary life, but she did it with extraordinary grace. She won't be remembered as famous, but she left many ripples on the pond. She was a PTA president, a Cub Scout mom and a Girl Scout cookie mom. She was a MUD director and a licensed financial professional. Annice was involved in the grassroots efforts to establish the NorthHarrisCountyCommunity College - which eventually led to the Lone Star College System. She was involved in the beginning efforts of Partners, the volunteer support for the arts at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. She helped found the Houston Northwest Delta Gamma Alumnae chapter, which has led to additional scholarships for college students, vision screenings and other aid to the visually impaired. She taught her children to be involved, to care about others and to do good things in good ways, and those ripples continue on.

Annice was preceded in death by her mother, Annice Pearce Blatt, and her father, Peter Edward Blatt. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, John A. Nanninga, her children - Thom and Karen Nanninga, Beth and Doug Grijalva and Ann and Paul O'Toole, and their families, her brother Dr. Philip Blatt and his family as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 18th in the chapel of First Presbyterian Church, 5300 Main Street, Houston, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Annice and John Nanninga Scholarship at Lone Star College Foundation, 5000 Research Forest Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77381, or to the .
