Nancy Jane Granger

September 5, 1940 - August 11, 2021

Nancy Jane Granger, most known as “Nene” or “Nanny”, 80, of Nederland passed

away on Tuesday, August 11, 2021, at the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. She was born September 5, 1940, in Port Arthur, to Ruth Evelyn Wolverton and Marvin Clyde Parsley. She graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and later went on to graduate from Lamar State College as a Licensed Vocational Nurse. She began her nursing career at Park Place, before moving on to Dr. Barlow’s office.

She had the biggest heart and the sweetest soul. She wanted nothing more than to help others and was always doing anything she could for those in need. After retiring from nursing, she decided to get a job as a childcare provider at Val Verde Child Care, to be around her grandchildren who attended. She eventually became everyone’s “Nene”. She loved and treated every family like they were part of her own and made an impact on everyone she encountered.

You could always find her reading a magazine or doing a crossword puzzle while sipping on an iced coffee. She was a die-hard patriot who loved everything red, white, and blue. Her main priority was her grandchildren who she adored and loved endlessly. Nene also loved her assisted living facility, Rose Place, where she became extremely active and spent most of her time in the arts and crafts room. She will be remembered for her honest opinions, exceptional life advice, and her free and easy spirit.

Nancy is preceded in death by her parents Marvin and Ruth Parsley and her husband Joseph Granger. She is survived by her two sons Marvin Earl Harper and Benjamin Harper, her grandchildren Alexus Harper, Cailin Walters, and her husband Colby, Koben Harper, Balie Provost, Amy Harper, Jamie Harper, and Jennifer Harper, and several others who she considered family.

A gathering of Mrs. Granger’s family and friends will begin at 1:00 p.m., with her funeral service at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, August 21, 2021, at Broussard’s, 505 North 12th Street, Nederland. Her interment will follow at Greenlawn Memorial Park, Groves.
