Mary Grace was born on June 11, 1973, in Elk Grove, the daughter of David and Judith (Bessler) Crawford.
She attended Vandalia Community High School and completed her bachelor's degree in elementary education at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. She chose to further her education and worked as a certified nurse's aide at Fayette County Hospital Long Term Care, and to work in the home health care field. She was a member of the National Road Interpretive Center and Vandalia Woman's Club.
Mary Grace lived life to the fullest, and she and friends would take trips to Dragon Con in Atlanta, Ga., the largest multi-media, pop culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music and film. They would often host and attend grand costume balls. She was a brave and inspiring woman to many.
Mary Grace is survived by her parents; daughter, Alexis Anne Stuckwisch; brothers, Andrew Crawford and his wife Dorothy, and Joseph Crawford and his wife Candy; sister, Susan Crawford; and seven nieces and nephews, and one great-niece, all of Vandalia.
