    Grace had a passion for gardening and planting flowers. She also loved canning, cooking and holiday baking with her family; especially when they requested the "infamous" German dish known to them as "sinkers". Grace truly enjoyed going for a "spin around town", whether it was to check the mail, or visit with an old friend over coffee.

    Grace was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Fred, her daughter Velma, her brothers George and Kenneth, sister Joyce, and one great-grandchild Toryn.

    Grace devoted her life to her family. She always made sure everyone was well taken care of, whether their bellies were full or their hearts content. She will be forever missed but her contagious smile will live on through her grandchildren.
