Grace was born Feb. 25, 1926, in North Liberty, to her parents, White and Vera Larew. Grace graduated in 1944 from University High School in Iowa City, and attended freshman year at the University of Iowa until she married the love of her life, Richard A.

She later returned to the University of Iowa to pursue a B.A. in Liberal Arts followed by a double M.A. in home economics and special education, focusing on early childhood development. For many years, Grace was an educator in special education at Hospital School of Iowa before leaving her profession to care for her parents and mother-in-law.
Her family includes her two children, Robert "Bob" Young (Andrea Jensen) and Joan Ambrose (Tom); grandchildren, Margaret E. Young (Jerome Cattin), Dan Ambrose and Sarah Ambrose; and daughter-in-law, Lynn Young.
Grace was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; eldest son, Bill; parents; brothers, Scott Larew and Harold Larew; and many more in-laws and cousins, who are remembered fondly.
Our family wishes to recognize and express our sincere appreciation for the many years of loving care by Oaknoll administration and nursing staffs, in addition to the support and love from the First Presbyterian Church family.
