Roberts Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Grace. Having memorial contributions to the VFW Auxiliary brings back many special memories. I remember your Mother, my Mother and many others who greatly contributed to our community, and they had fun and enjoyed every minute. Catering, dinners, and dances were a huge part of their lives. I am sure there is a gathering of members upon her arrival. Sorry I will be unable to attend the funeral, but all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers. In Christian Love, Pandora

Dear Roberts family,
I knew your mom from First Grade until we graduated together in 1954 - 65 years ago.
I knew her parents, brother and sister. I always felt very welcomed at Grace's home and spent many hours there.
I would have failed Algebra if it wasn't for Grace. Amazing, she pulled me through.
I have a lot of special and fun memories of your mom and our friends Ella Mae Britton, Grace Shriver and others.
My sympathy and God's Blessings to all of you at this difficult time.
Mary Donna Wodarcyk. Maiden name Rucker.
