Grace and Robert were married 47 years and raised their family in Back Harbour. Before marriage, she worked at the hospital and then became a stay-at-home mom. Grace was a member of the ACW for many years and loved her Church. She had her special seat in the church and was often there with her grandchildren when they were young. You could find Grace sitting at home knitting or making quilts. When she wasn’t making mittens or socks she enjoyed doing word search puzzles. She also loved to see people coming around and enjoyed a cup of tea with them. Her grandchildren would visit daily, and loved her kool-aid, candies and cinnamon rolls. Special thank you to the Long Term Care Staff of The Notre Dame Bay Memorial Health Centre who all provided Grace with loving care and support. As per Grace’s wishes, donations may be given in Grace’s memory to the family for a charity of their choosing. You have taught us well; your work here is done. You have earned the right to rest in peace.
