Mar 30, 1939 - Dec 27, 2012

Grace has passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her husband John, her sons John and Chris, daughter-in-law Sandy and a huge extended family of loving friends. Grace was born in Port Angeles, Washington and attended Pacific Lutheran University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree. Grace immigrated to Canada in 1966 and she and John settled down to raise their children. She soon started her own business, following her passion for music. A gifted and patient teacher, she taught music from her home for many years. She was involved with the WV Senior Centre and also participated in / taught many other groups over the years. Grace loved her little house where she lived happily with her family. She was always interested in people, loved her church and had many friends. Grace will be greatly missed by those that knew and loved her. She was a a beacon of kindness, had a zest for life and wanted everyone to know that she had a lot of fun with all of us. Thank you to the wonderful care and support given by The North Shore Hospice. In lieu of flowers, please donate to fight cancer. A celebration of Grace's life will be held on Saturday, January 12 at 2pm, Saint Stephen's Anglican Church, 885 - 22nd Street, West Vancouver.
