The Bayard News Sept 29, 1977

Although she was past 91 years old, the death of Mrs. Nora Raner last Wednesday in the Perry Manor was unexpected. She had been hospitalized in Des Moines with a broken hip but her condition improved and she was able to move to the care center in Perry.
Funeral services for one of Bagley's oldest residents who was known far and wide for her "Green Thumb" with flowers were held Saturday at 2 pm from the Bagley United Methodist church. The Pastor, Rev Paul Donelson, officiated and organist was Mrs. Bill Stanley who accompanied Mrs. Dean Adkins when she sang.
The casket was carried by Russell Klinzman, Raymond Hoyt, Derald Carson, Roger Zeller, Vernon Holmes and Leo Ellis. Interment was made in the Highland Cemetery at Bayard.
Nora May Ireland Raner was born March 31, 1886, In Salina, Kansas. She was the daughter of John and Zura Baker Ireland. Nora came to Iowa with her parents where she grew to womanhood.
In 1901 she was united in marriage with Curtis Raner. To this union were born five children; Pauline Lynge of Houston, Texas; Norman Raner of Perry; LaVaun Hill of Bagley, and two children who preceded her in death, Marie Neal Ward of Houston, Texas, and Clifford Raner of Grand Junction.
Her husband passed away in 1962 after they had been happily married for 61 years. Since that time Mrs. Raner has made her home in Bagley. Even though she was handicapped, Nora enjoyed working in her garden and with flowers. She was a member of the United Methodist Church, the Auxiliary of Sedan Post No. 302 of the American Legion and the Federated Garden Club, all in Bagley.
Mrs. Raner was very active until the time of her death on Wednesday, September 21, in Perry. Besides her parents, husband and two children, she was preceded in death by three grandchildren, Larry Hill and Bobby and Jerry Neal. Survivors include her three children, nine grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, two great great grandchildren, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, one sister, Mrs. Cecil (Frances) Grey of Des Moines, several nieces and nephews and many friends.
