I have known Grace for many years. We were sisters in Christ. Her love for Jesus and her family was compelling and strong. She thought the world of her husband, Joe, her daughters and granddaughter. Whatever she did was with great gusto and perseverance. She enjoyed going to dinner and a movie, yoga and dancing. She had a great time at Joe’s and my class reunion a few years ago and easily made some new friends there. She will surely be missed here on earth! RIP in God’s loving arms my friend!

My heartfelt condolences to the family. Grace has been a very good and faithful friend to me. She was there for me when I lost my husband. I will miss out walks, movie nights, concerts and so much more. She had a heart of gold! My dear friend I'm sure you are dancing in heaven. ❤

Grace will be missed in our church small groups. Her willingness to devote her time to helping others Will continue to motivate us even though she won’t be with us. Her devotion to the our lord Jesus Christ here on earth has helped many people. She would always try to find ways to help others like in this picture when we made over 10 compassion bags for Reclaim13 ( always with a smile on her face). She will never be forgotten she lives in our hearts.
Our condolences go out to the family
