Lucille “Andrea” Elanor Grant, 93, of McCordsville, Indiana passed away on May 18, 2023, in the comfort of her home. She was born in Orange, New Jersey on May 19, 1929, to her parents Howard and Lauretta Nichols. Andrea was one of a kind—wearing many different hats throughout her lifetime. She worked for Western Electric for 32 years and retired in 1985. She then worked for Indy Lighting for 7 years. Andrea was a member of Missionary Free Christian Church, now known as Crossroads Bible Church, since 1984. She was a member of the Telephone Pioneers and was an Infant Hearing volunteer for many years at Methodist Hospital. Andrea loved her animals, crime shows, and being with her family. She was a woman who was always put together, and never knew a stranger. It was simple, to know Andrea was to love her. She will be missed terribly by all the lives she has touched.
Andrea is survived by her children, Andrea (Charles) Wolf and William “Bill” Grant; her grandchildren, Cassandra Thompson and Mark Brickman; her great grandchildren, Kristen and Cory; her great-great grandson, Austin; and her brother, Edward Nichols.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Lauretta Nichols; her granddaughter, Carmen VanHuss; and her brother, Howard Nichols.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, May 25, 2023, from 12PM-2PM, with a funeral beginning at 2PM, all at Flanner Buchanan—Washington Park East, 10722 E Washington St. Andrea will be laid to rest in Washington Park East Cemetery.
