Grace Virginia Brennan, born February 1, 1955, passed away Saturday, January 29, 2022, at Fort Sanders Hospital.
Grace graduated from Fort Sanders Nursing School and started her career as a registered nurse, working at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville before transferring to Vanderbilt Hospital. Graces’ keen interest in computer technology combined with her knowledge and experience in nursing led her to accept a position in the information technology department at the hospital. In this capacity, Grace helped with the development of one of the first hospital patient computer systems that integrated patient care and billing systems.
While Grace worked as a nurse and as an IT analyst, her creative side was her passion. She enjoyed projects that included painting, cross-stitch, macrame, working with stained glass, sculpting, and sewing. Grace gained great pleasure in showing her artistic side. Grace also enjoyed reconnecting with relatives in Mississippi as well as friends from elementary and high school on Facebook. She attended West Hills Presbyterian Church growing up and accepted the Lord as her Savior at a young age.
She is preceded in death by her father, William Brennan.
She is survived by her mother, Marjorie Brennan; sister Judy Cross and husband Royce; nephews Bryan Cross and wife Amanda, Kevin Cross and wife Amanda, Michael Cross and wife Amanda as well as four great-nephews and nieces, Tyler, Kaylin, Sadie, and Mason.
