Grace A. Fancher

Grace A. Fancher, 97, of Farmington, went to be with the Lord on Friday (Feb. 15, 2013) at St. Barbara’s Memorial Nursing Home in Monongah following an extended illness.

She had made her home in Rachel for the past five years with her son and daughter-in-law. She was born June 30, 1915, in Hyndman, Pa., a daughter of the late Charles Andrew and Nevada Bell Huffman Rexrode.

In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband, Bennie Fancher, who died in May of 1987.

Grace is survived by a daughter, Donna Grimm of Anaheim, Calif., her son Charles T. Fancher and wife Jeanne of Rachel; five grandchildren, Todd and Kerry Fancher of Rachel, Jeffery Grimm, Huntington Beach, Calif., Jennifer and Wes Harbor, Sparks, Nev., Craig and Tara Fancher, White Hall, and Matthew and Amber Fancher, Fairmont.

She is also preceded in death by a brother, Clyde Rexrode, and a sister, Freda Bennett; a son-in-law, James Grimm; and one great-grandson, Travis M. Fancher.

Mrs. Fancher was a member of the Farmington Main Street UMC, where she was active since 1945, serving on various committees and active in the United Methodist Women.

She was a homemaker who enjoyed baking various baked goods, including pepperoni rolls, and also enjoyed sewing, quilting and crocheting. She was an avid reader, especially her Bible. She enjoyed spending time with her family, coloring and working word-search puzzles with her great grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Sudha Katragadda and staff, Fairmont General Home Health Care, Hospice Care Corp., and Adas and her special friends of the West Farmington UMC who visited faithfully.

The family requests donations be made to the Gideons to further the work of the Kingdom.
