Grace will always be remember by the seniors and staff at the currituck senior center as someone always giving a smile and offering a hug. Even when she couldnt come anymore, she often called to say hi and to share a story. Most stories were about her grand-babies that she was so proud of. She will be missed greatly by all.

I’m the daughter or Ben and Mildred Colonna. Your parents were great friends of my family and I am sure Grace will be missed by many. I have thought about her often and how nice she was. Be blessed for having such a wonderful mother.

Dear Russell and family, I am so sorry for your loss . I know Grace is having her reward with our Lord. Grace friended me shortly after I moved to Currituck. We had great conversations on our way to Red Hat lunches and Wednesday night dinners at Pilmoor. . Grace will be missed. You and your family are in our prayers. Donna Forcht
