I was so sad to learn of Grace's passing. I first met Grace in 1972 and had just started working in the office with her at National Latex. I instantly liked Grace as she was so kind and helpful to me. My sincere sympathies to her family.

We loved Aunt Grace very much and will miss her greatly. She was a wonderful lady who always had a big smile and was friendly to everyone. She had many friends because she was always helping others and was very active in the Ashland community. Always a great conversationalist she had kind things to say. Her volunteer work was great - her life touched many family and friends. She was a great typist and was a wonderful talented piano player too. She is now in the Lord’s loving care in heaven and not suffering anymore. We love you, Aunt Grace. Love you - Steve, Judy, David, Tiffani, Asher and Riley.

I am sorry to hear of Grace’s passing, although I know she has not been doing as well. it was my great joy to see Grace each week, in the beauty salon.... we had many good conversations about all sorts of things... I will miss her very much. I also got to know Nub in the later years when he would not let her drive to the salon alone. My sympathy to Barb, Chris and your lovely family, of whom Grace was so proud. You will be in my prayers.

Aunt Grace was such a wonderful and amazing person, so very sad she is no longer with us. She sent me a card for every single birthday or event in my life as well as driving to attend my wedding and bridal shower. That’s the kind of person she was, so very very thoughtful and truly caring. She had a smile that was contagious and made you 10x happier just seeing her. I feel so very grateful to have known her. She will be very missed.
