Grace was born April 30, 1920, in Cosgrove, the daughter of Cyril and Sara (Meade) Rohret. She was a graduate of Cosgrove High School.

She loved playing bingo, playing cards with the girls and dancing at Danceland, Walford and Armar Ballroom with a group of special friends. She liked to bake and there were always cookies for the grandkids or anyone else who stopped by.
