Grace was the ultimate selfless caregiver. The love of others flowed from her heart to the hearts of everyone she touched. This calling was evident from her early years working at St. Francis Hospital as an aide and continued through her work helping her brother with his restaurant and deli. She taught her children how to care for others as they watched her faithfully care for her parents and the parents of friends.
Grace enjoyed taking care of her grandchildren and even her great grandchildren. She performed all the tasks that came with that including carpool, homework and sometimes needed discipline. The bond that she created with them was immense.
Her home had an open door policy; anyone who needed nurturance was welcomed for any length of time, hours, days or weeks. Children, grandchildren, friends felt comfortable sharing their stories and secrets. What was told in confidence, she kept to herself. But because her home was “command central”, she kept everyone in the loop with what was going on in everyone’s lives. She was a faithful Facebook follower and kept us in the know.
She brought people together not just with her quiet spirit and fabulous cooking, but in the comradery that goes with preparing, canning, sharing and even cleaning up after a meal. Grace's selfless disposition made it easy for everyone to feel comforted by her presence and know that they were loved. Even in her final days, she wanted to be sure that her family was going to be okay.
Her son-in-law said it fittingly, "This is the best family to be married into!"
