Nancy Jo Moore Graves, age 86, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021 at Life Care of La Center. Born to Joe S. and Vivian (Anderson) Moore on October 30, 1934, Nancy graduated from La Center High School in 1952. She was a dedicated member of La Center First Christian Church.
Nancy worked for Dr. Sydney G. Dyer in La Center from 1965 to 1981, and went to work for La Center First National Bank (now Regions) in 1984, retiring in 2007. She loved being around people while working “in town” but also spent some happy years helping her husband Bennie on their dairy farm.
