Grace NELSON Obituary
Age 84 Passed peacefully at home with her children and sister by her side. Grace was dubbed "Amazing Grace" by her co-workers in real-estate. Entering the business at 50, she immediately became and remained one of Merrill Lynch/Burnet Realty's top agents for years. Grace's biggest achievement in life however, was to embrace the change of the role of womanhood throughout her life. From farmer's daughter, to young working city girl, to wife and stay-at-home mother, to successful businesswoman. She was even asked to be a runway model in her 50's. Grace's favorite advice was "Don't sweat the small stuff". She is survived by her sister Dorothy, children Scott, Connie, Brad, and Linda, 12 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Preceded into eternal rest 19 days earlier by her ex-husband, Levi "Skip" Nelson. Graces' service will be a private, family event.
