Donna Grandy

July 13, 1931 - February 20, 2012



 (nee Norling),

at the age of 80,

passed away peacefully on February 20, 2012, at Good Samaritan Society, Inver Grove Heights, MN.  She is survived by children Diane (Tim) Rechtzigel, Marlo (Anne Marie) Grandy, and

Brian Grandy; step-daughter Karen (Jeff) Klinkerfues; nine grandchildren; brothers Charles (Judy) Norling, Daniel  Norling, Paul (Bev) Norling, and Larry (Kitty) Norling; many nieces and nephews; and many friends that she held dear and true.  She was preceded in death by the love of her life, Clarence; parents Herbert and Doris Norling; brother Leonard Norling; and many other dear relatives and friends.  Donna's life journey was not an easy one, but she faced everything with a smile and determination, and most of all her love for Jesus who put a song in her heart and sweet words on her  lips. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the wonderful caring staff of Good Samaritan Society IGH where Donna  made her home for the last year and a half.  With their love and support Donna was able to continue to have that song in her heart and sweet words on her lips.  They were a monumental support system for the family caregivers -- "thank you" just doesn't seem to be enough.  Though God had a time-frame for her, Health East Hospice

gently helped with Donna in her last days.  The family is eternally grateful to all who played a part in her life over the years.  You all helped make her the person she was from beginning to end.  A Celebration of Donna's life will be held on Friday, April 13, 2012 at   Easter Lutheran Church, 4200 Pilot Knob Road, Eagan, MN with visitation at 4:30 to 6pm and service at 6pm  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to Good Samaritan Society IGH, 1301 - 50th Street E.,  Inver Grove Heights, MN 55077.
