NHS Board Member, Annie Oakley Expert Nancy GruelichNancy Greulich, 80, of Nutley, N.J., passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016. Born in East Orange, Greulich lived in Nutley for more than 50 years where she was always seen and heard at township events.

As a long-time Nutley Historical Society board member Gruelich led tours of the Nutley Museum for scouts, schoolchildren and visiting families.

Gruelich studied the life of Annie Oakley and the sharpshooter's era here in Nutley and became expert on the life of our famous celebrity.

Nancy was a founding member of the Nutley Thriving Survivors, a member of the Women's Initiative of Nutley, past-president of the Nutley and Essex Republican Clubs, an elected Republican Official, a member of the John H. Walker Memorial Fund, the John V. Kelly Foundation, and friends of the Nutley Library.

Nancy was the Jaycee's 2009 recipient of the Award for Civic Affairs. She belonged to several dining groups, dog enthusiast groups and was very proud of her work with her therapy dog Casey who for 12 years visited hospitals, Kessler Rehabilitation facilities, handicapped classrooms and people's homes bringing joy and love as only a dog can bring.

Nancy served the Nutley Board of Education for 29 years as a Teacher's Aide and Purchasing Agent. Her intensity and passion will be missed in our family and our Township.

She was the loving mother of Kim, Jeff (Robyn), Stephen (Robin), and Alex (Deb) and beloved dog Stella. Nancy was a loving Mema to her six grandchildren, DJ, Kyle, Corey, Allison, Melissa and Kirston. She was an endeared aunt and caring friend to many.
