In the 1970’s Grace began working for Woodwards, where eventually she ended up in Lethbridge. Grace spent most of her life working in the hospitality industry. She enjoyed meeting people and made many good friends through her work. She adored her family with unconditional love and support. Most family members would tell you that she gave the best hugs.
