Nancy Lee "T" Granberry, 100, a former school teacher, died Sunday, April 4, 2004, at St. Catherine's Village. A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Hazlehurst City Cemetery in Hazlehurst. Visitation is 4-6 p.m. today at Wright & Ferguson Funeral Home in Jackson.

Miss Granberry was a Hazlehurst native where she was a member of the First Baptist Church. She spent many years living in Jackson and had lived at St. Catherine's Village in Madison since 1990.

She received a bachelor of arts degree from Tulane University and a masters degree from Columbia University in New York.

She taught school from 1922-1969. She began her career in the Delta where she taught for 14 years, in Holly Bluff and Belzoni. In 1941 she began a 28 year career teaching English and Social Studies at Bailey Junior High School.

In a 1969 interview with Billy Skelton of the Clarion Ledger, Granberry qualified the use of the word, "teacher" "Some I taught," she said, "some I haven't touched."

She is survived by two nieces, Mary Nell Taylor of Richland and Helen O'Keefe of Ocean Springs; nephew, Henry Granberry, III of Nashville, Tenn.; great-niece, Mary Ann Elliott of Brandon; four great-nephews, Buddy Boggan of Greenwood, John Boggan of Madison, Ken Taylor and Larry Taylor of Richland.
