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.
