Lawrence, Grace Irene (Nee Powell)

Grace passed away peacefully at the age of 89 in Princeton Hospital. She was born in Burnett, Washington to British parents who had just immigrated to the Untied States. Her family moved to Canada and came to Princeton in 1928 when she was 7 years old. She grew up in the One Mile area and spent her whole adult life in Princeton. Grace was a charter member of the Royal Purple Lodge – Branch 82,
one of the founding members of the Family Fair, a
member of the Hospital Auxiliary for almost 70 years and a long term member of the Ladies’ Auxiliary to the
Royal Canadian Legion. Grace loved gardening
and oil painting for many years.
Grace was pre-deceased very recently by her husband Bert, to whom she was married for 71 years, and by her daughter Jeraldine (Wayne) in 2010.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter
Darnella (Frank), sons Grant and Duane,
six grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren.
