To my cousins and all who knew my Aunt Grace, I'm sorry for the loss of a wonderful loving and caring woman. I wish I could have been there in PA for the service. I live in Florida now for those who do not know. RIP Aunt Grace. I'm sure mom and dad, and Uncle Ray, and the rest of the family were there for your arrival. Please give them all a hug from me. God Bless

I am so sorry to hear of Grace’s passing. She was a great lady with whom I shared many good times at Hope Lutheran Church! We served on several committees together and even worked as co-coordinators of the Christmas Bazaar. She loved doing crafts and sharing them with others! I have missed seeing her and Ray in church over the recent years, but have often thought of them with fond memories! Our prayers are for peace for all who grieve her loss.
