I am so sorry to here about Graces passing. God be with Bob and her family. My heartfelt prayers for your family. Grace was a beautiful kind person.
Thank you very much Carol. Blessings, Bob.
I was so sad when I received the news that Grace had passed. She was there from the beginning of my journey into the nursing field as one of my instructors at the Canton City Practical Nurse Program. And then hired me almost 15 years later to work as one of her instructors while she was the coordinator of the same program… and I’m sure I was probably a handful during both if she was writing this. And there are tons of good memories to last a lifetime. Prayers go out to the family for your loss

Grace was one of the nicest people I know . We joined fiber guild at the same time. She was a day younger than me .I don’t think I ever heard her say a negative word about anyone. I missed the announcement about your service or I’d have been there, the world is a sadder place for her leaving. . I’m really sorry for your loss,
