Grace worked for the State of Wisconsin Board of Regents as a secretary, and Krug's Bus Service in Medford. She enjoyed crocheting dolls and doilies, canning, and collecting squirrel figurines.

Grace is preceded in death by her parents, one sister, Beverly Clements, and a daughter-in-law, Sheryl Ross in 2007.

A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the VFW Post 305 in Eau Claire. Burial will take place in the Northern Wisconsin Veteran's Memorial Cemetery in Spooner.
