Gracia Elna Tower, age 101 of Jenison, formerly of Wyoming, had her prayers answered, concluded her earthly journey, and was welcomed into the arms of Jesus Tuesday, September 27, 2022, with her family by her side. Gracia was devoted to the Lord, her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She had a true servant’s heart. She enjoyed volunteer and community work, church roles including being a longtime pianist. She provided the stable home life that allowed her husband and children to flourish. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8 Gracia deeply appreciated the friendships she had and the care that she received at Sunset Manor in the more than 20 years she called Sunset her home.
