Grace lived her life in a kind, caring and compassionate way. She loved family above all else and was devoted to her children and grandchildren. She spent countless hours playing games and being “hands-on” with her grandchildren.
Grace was passionate about the Holidays and was referred to as “Nana Claus”. She spent months shopping and preparing stockings for the Christmas holiday.
