Grace lived her life for her family and friends. She loved baking, sewing and tending to her roses. She was excited to embrace technology and regularly texted her Bitmoji for every emotion. She was an avid Cleveland Indians fan and never missed a game. She knew, and sometimes complained about all the players. Grace stayed youthful by staying active. She loved to dance and sing. In their spare time, John and Grace delivered Meals on Wheels and made funeral dinners. She devoted years serving as a volunteer at Wadsworth Rittman Hospital. She had a beautiful smile and embraced life by embracing people.
