She studied education at Kent State University and taught for 27 years at Waterloo Elementary School in Atwater OH. She was active in Kappa Delta Pi and the Association of University Women. She especially loved teaching science, inspiring a multitude of 4th graders.
Grace and Ken loved to travel, while still working, but especially after retirement, logging 47 countries and countless drives through the USA. She was an avid photographer, and a voracious reader, but quilting was her passion. She was an active member and past president of the Valley Quilters in Hemet and was recently honored as the quilter of the year at the annual show. She was an inventive and imaginative quilt designer and she produced some magnificent showpieces.
She will be sorely missed.
