Nancy Jane Gruber peacefully passed away August 26 at the age of 88 in Grand Rapids, Michigan surrounded by her children and grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Richard “Dick” C. Gruber, of 59 years. They thoroughly enjoyed their last years together in Highlands Ridge, Avon Park, FL from 1999-2014. Nancy and Dick enjoyed golfing with family and friends and traveling the world. Most of all they just loved being together. Nancy was an avid gardener, cook, quilter and card player; and passed on those passions to her children and grandchildren.
The daughter of Elizabeth (Harper) and Theodore Guarniere, she was raised in Detroit and attended Mackenzie High School. While there, she forged lifelong friendships; as well as in each place she lived in Michigan, Delaware, South Carolina and Florida.
She is survived by her sister Joan G. Graf (Herb Furey), and the proud mother of son James R. Gruber (Kathryn), daughter Lynnda G. White (Brad), son John C. Gruber (Pamela); grandsons Eric Gruber (Sara), Michael Gruber (Morgan), Josh White (Claudia), Thomas “TC” Gruber (Stacey) and Tim Gruber(Emily), granddaughters Sarah Nemmers (Brady) and Emily White and 8 great grandchildren.
Due to current COVID gathering restrictions, the family is planning a close family and friend’s memorial for Nancy in the future.
The family is grateful for the kindness, respect and wonderful care Nancy received from the staff at Raybrook and Faith Hospice.
