We would like to offer our sincere condolences to Grace’s family. We knew Grace when a member of our family was at St. Joseph’s villa, we would go to play cards a few nights a week. When Grace went home we would go to her house a few times for a potluck supper. She was always a gracious and loving hostess, always making us feel welcome. Between lockdowns we were able to gather at a restaurant a couple of times, she will be dearly missed. May our gracious Lord welcome you into his loving arms.
Patricia, Rita & Noemi Dufresne

I don't know when Grace and I started sharing books but she would always call me and say 'I have a bag of books for you in the closet'. We enjoyed sharing many books over the years. I didn't get around to picking up the last bag but know that someone will enjoy reading them. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I enjoyed laughing with Grace at CGH. I also enjoyed working with Steve & Peter. I met Grace again when she moved into McConnell Manor. My condolences to the family. I'm sure you'll have several memories to share.
