Sandra Groseclose, a Marana volunteer and former town employee, has died at the age of 62.

Groseclose passed away on July 12 after a battle with breast cancer.

Born in Clinton, Iowa, she lived in the Marana area, working for Valley National Bank and the town of Marana and volunteered for several organizations.

“She was an absolute incredible lady. She had a deep love for the community,” said Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. “Always ready and willing to serve whenever needed.”

Groseclose was a former town clerk and special events coordinator, who worked annually on Marana’s Founders Day and the town’s Fourth of July celebrations.

“She was real Marana,” said former town Manger Mike Reuwsaat, who worked with Groseclose throughout his tenure with the town.

He said she helped bridge transition between the small, “old Marana” and the thriving community of today.

Groseclose was also a volunteer with the Marana 4-H club and the Marana Arts Council, and she worked with the town’s Police Explorers.

Services will be held July 24 at 2 p.m. at Catalina Foothills Church, 2150 E. Orange Grove Road.

A reception sponsored by the town will be held at 4 p.m. at the Marana Heritage Park, at the intersection of Tangerine Farms Road and Gladden Farms Drive.

Groseclose’s relatives request that instead of flowers, a donation be made on her behalf to the Arizona Cancer Center.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
