She will be forever missed and fondly remembered by her son Gerry, and her daughters Karen (Ray), and Linda (Marlon) and her grandchildren Jennifer (Trevor), Joey, Diana and Maclean (Erin) and her great grandchildren Kaylee, Theo, Gus, Sally, Woodrow, her newest great granddaughter, Goldie, and extended family and many dear friends.
Grace was predeceased by her husband Les (2006).
We know mom would like to thank the nurses and care staff at The Terraces at Evergreen Baptist Home. Mom spent her last 2 years there and grew fond of so many of the staff there. She called some of her favorite care givers “her girls”. And especially a big thank you for her friend in crime, her dear friend Linda who was with her during her time at The Terraces. They were inseparable.
Grace was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She went to Manitoba Business College and became a book keeper. She worked as a bookkeeper at Searle Grain Company in Manitoba, Evergreen Baptist Home in White Rock, and at Faith Christian Books in Surrey and then retired.
Grace met Les at Clear Lake, Manitoba and after dating for 2 years they were married on Sept. 15th, 1951. They had 3 children in Winnipeg and then when Dad’s work offered him a transfer to British Columbia, they moved to White Rock. They were married for 55 years.
Grace attended Mount Olive Lutheran Church in White Rock. She loved to sing in the choir. She had a lovely alto voice. She developed wonderful friendships at the church and still remained friends with some of them until the day she passed away.
She was very involved in Women’s Aglow and was the British Columbia treasurer and then became the National treasurer for many years. She also volunteered in the kitchen at White Rock Christian Academy where her grandchildren attended. She also attended church at White Rock Christian Fellowship and Southgate Church in Langley and attended the Senior’s programs at both these churches.
She loved musicals, dessert, walks along the beach, and of course being a wife, mother, grandmother and a great grandmother, and a good friend. She loved her Lord and Savior and she was looking forward to her heavenly home. We love you mom. xo
