    I met Grace at St. Clare’s where my mother was also a resident. Grace was a lovely woman with a beautiful spirit. I had many delightful conversations with her. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Grace was a dear neighbor and friend to me for many years. We lived next door to each other on Hwy 65. She never complained about anything,,always in a good mood, at least around me she was. Whenever I had a trouble spot in m sewing days, she could always fix it and show me how to do it. I will miss her so very much. I am so glad I got to visit with her just 2 days before she passed. We talked about the good ol’ days, was fun. She was a wonderful person..Love you Grace, until we meet again,,Marlene Lilyerd

    I met Grace when I volunteered at One More Time. I worked with her for about three years before she had to quit. I’m sorry I didn’t visit her more often at St. Clare’s. She was a very special lady.
    I’m so sorry for the family for your loss. She lived a full time and I’m sure you all have very special memories of her.
    Linda
