We were sad to hear that Grace had passed away because we know you all will miss her. She was such a sweet lady. My parents loved being neighbors to you at Henry. Dad used to kid about throwing rocks at Grace when she walked by his house on the way to the Post Office. She was so good to them. You have a wonderful godly heritage from your parents. Praying God will bless you all and keep you in His care, giving you His comfort and His peace as you pass on that heritage to the next generations. Love to you. Garry and Barbara Senkel

Grace was a special person and friend. She was always willing to help and always cared about others. She was a member of our ladies circle at church and we will always miss her.
I am sorry she had to go through the illness she had but I know she is at home with the Lord where there will be no suffering or pain.God Bless her and her famiy.

Cheri and I were saddened to receive news that our sister in Christ Grace went home to be with the Lord. Grace was such a special person, and we were blessed to know and love her. She gave of herself serving in numerous ways at First Baptist and I was impressed by her love of the Word and her humble attitude about her abilities.
But while we know she will be sorely missed by the faith family at First Baptist, we rejoice that she has reached the culmination of her faith by now being in the eternal presence of the Lord she so loved and proclaimed.
Our prayers are with all the family and friends that remain. May God's peace and comfort be yours.
