Nancy Carroll Grant

Nancy Carroll Grant of Charleston, wife of T. Patrick Murray, entered into eternal rest on July 14, 2022. Nancy was born in Atlanta Georgia on January  11, 1947. She spent a great deal of her childhood at the Thornwell orphanage in Clinton, S.C. She got her undergraduate degree at Georgia State University and went on to Dental school at SUNY Buffalo, where she was one of only two women in her class. She also completed her residency in Pediatric Dentistry at Buffalo. She then came to MUSC in Charleston SC, where she was the director of the residency program in pediatric dentistry. She guided dozens of residents through their training and was responsible for setting up and opening the dental clinic in the old children’s hospital at MUSC. She later moved to Albany NY where she was an associate in a private practice, later moving to Denver CO, and running her own practice. She was very well respected in the dental community and beloved among her patients and their parents. Her patients were some of the most important people in her life and she was dedicated to teaching them proper dental hygiene and how the dentist office need not be a scary place. After retiring from practice she returned to Charleston to live out her retirement. 

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her brother, Paul Grant of Geneva, Switzerland; sister, Judy Arter of Philadelphia, PA; and niece, Kim Kinmont of Daytona Beach, FL.

A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held at a later date.
