Survived by her children, Beth and Alan Wilcox, Ben and Shelley Bennett, and Julia and Shon Gallagher; and her grandchildren, Clark, Madelynn and her husband Adam, Tyler, Tanner, Meghan, Carter, Kendle, Kincaid, and Violet.

    Dear Family, Your momma, "Amazing Grace", truly was an amazing woman! I loved her giggle and her fun loving spirit. I am so grateful for her influence in my life and in the lives of many others. She will truly be missed! Cindy Madsen Frame

    I always enjoyed visiting with your Mother, and she would always mention one of her children or grandchildren, before our conversation would end. She loved her children and grandchildren. Wish we could be there Saturday, but we are away on vacation. My mother passed away last year, so I know there will be a empty space for each one of you.

    Grace was a good friend, and we had many fun memories over the years. She always talked about her children and grandchildren with a smile on her face because they brought her great joy. Her optimism and love of life were part of her character. She will be missed.
