Grace married the love of her life, Fred, in 1948. They made their home in Dorchester and in Weymouth; eventually retiring to Town & Country Estates in Kingston in 1985, where she was an active member of the homeowner’s association and loved planning and taking part in social events. She was an avid bowler and looked forward each year to the bowling banquet. She also was a loyal fan of The Boston Red Sox and The New England Patriots. She and her husband were fabulous dancers and took the floor at many weddings and celebrations.
Grace worked at The Stetson Shoe Company in Weymouth and The Foxboro Company in East Bridgewater.
Grace’s homemade pizza was prize-worthy, along with her sauce and meatballs. She was happiest when her dining room was full of family or friends, both of which meant so much to her. Grace especially loved getting together with " the gang" (her close friends at Town and Country) for dinner, conversation and laughter. She will be remembered and missed by so many.
Donations in Grace’s memory can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital (Partners in Hope), Wingate at Silver Lake, or Sunrise Assisted Living at Plymouth Beach.
Funeral services will be private.
