Grace Violet Schier, 82, of Marshfield passed away Tuesday, June 17, 2015, in her loving husband’s arms. She has now reached her heavenly home.

She later taught one year at Sacred Heart School, one year at St. Michael’s School in Hewitt and then 29 years in Marshfield. She then did substitute teaching at St. John’s and Our Lady of Peace until a stroke following a car accident stopped her teaching in January of 12012. She made every child feel special and truly loved teaching the young ones, especially about Jesus.
