Nancy Alice Gardner
Nancy Alice Gardner of East Lansing, 59, died on October 2 at home. Originally from Brockton, Massachusetts, Nancy attended University of Massachusetts and Northeastern University for her bachelor's and master's degrees, working for many years as a computer analyst. Nancy volunteered with Capital Area Literacy, Haven House, and at Edgewood United Church of Christ. With a great love of humanity, Nancy could never pass a person in need without giving them whatever she had in her wallet. Nancy touched every person she knew with her zest for life, and the intensity of her love for her family, friends, all children, and animals.
She will be missed terribly by her children, Maia and Regina Grant, her spouse Julia Grant, her mother Lorraine Sullivan, her brothers Jack and Pete Gardner, and her nieces and nephews.
Her memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on October 11 at Edgewood United Church of Christ in East Lansing. Donations in Nancy's memory may be made to Haven House, 121 Whitehills Drive, East Lansing, MI 48823.
