Grace Katherine Webster, seven years old, of Anderson, California, died Sunday, December 11, 2011.
Gracie was born on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2003 in San Jose, California to Perry and Erica Webster.
Gracie was loved by her parents, Perry and Erica Webster, her sister Sarah, 6, and her brother Garrett, 3. She was also loved by her great grandmother, Sue Jordan of Auburn, California, grandmother and grandfather Susan and Mike Jackson of Destin, Florida, grandfather John Gibb of Oakland, California, and grandfather and grandmother Mike and Sharen Webster of Redding, California. Gracie leaves several aunts and uncles: Mike Jackson of Tampa, Florida, Tony and Dawn Jackson of Thornton, Colorado, Renee Webster of Fair Oaks, California, Michelle and Mike Robinson of Anderson, California and Lewis and Lori Webster of San Jose, California. Gracie also was loved by her five cousins, Emily and Andrew Robinson of Anderson, Zane and Cole Webster of San Jose, Lily Jackson of Thornton, Colorado and her beloved nanny, Mandy Gray Gelms of Redding. Gracie was also blessed to have had the love, support and prayers of many other dear relatives and friends. Gracie attended Verde Vale Elementary School in Anderson.
After nearly 8 years of a courageous battle with a seizure-causing brain tumor, Gracie passed away unexpectedly but peacefully with her mother and father at her side, on Sunday morning. Gracie brought joy to the lives of those who loved her with her gentle smile and loving personality. Gracie loved going to school, making jewelry, doing puzzles and taking care of her baby dolls. She was a great big sister and simply wanted to make sure her sister and brother were happy every day. We were blessed to have her in our lives and she showed all who knew her that even in the tough times all of us can find moments of immense happiness and joy.
