Grace was a loving mother and grandmother.   She was kind and never had an ill word to say about anyone. She loved to travel, was a wonderful seamstress, and always entertained with her stories of going dancing and roller skating when she was a young woman.  Grace had a wonderful sense of humor and always said that you are only as old as you feel. She was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman.
