A loving wife, great mother, pride-filled grandmother and strong woman left us on July 22, 2008 to be with the Lord. Grace was born August 16, 1939 and grew up in Edwardsburg, Michigan then moved to Tacoma where she was a local business owner and became very active in the Pierce County area. Her interests were in transportation, PTA, Women in Business and the Republican Party. Throughout the years she received many awards for her community service and dedication to many clubs and organizations that she strongly believed in.
Keeping her in their hearts are her loving husband of 40 years, Jerry; daughters Alisa Dillon (Jim) and Becky Cleary (Michael), grandchildren Brian, Brittany and M’lis, brother John Klip and sister Lois Fackelman and longtime friends Don Kendall, Bob Stein, Marion Hicks and many more friends.
Memorial will be held Saturday, Aug. 2 at Life Center, 1717 S. Union, Tacoma at 11 am. A reception will follow. Donations should be made to American Cancer Society.
