Never was there a function at Trinity Episcopal Church that didn‘t find her on the committee. Grace was a permanent kitchen staff member and spent many a long hour prepping for the annual Christmas Bazaar. She had joined the church in 1947 and served as a Vestryperson and with the Ladies’ Guild. How there was time for Grace to be president of the Woolwich Fire Co. Ladies Auxiliary is a anyone’s guess. But she didn’t just play a role in Swedesboro’s organizations: any kid that needed a place to stay or looked hungry was always welcome in Graces’ home.
A trip to Franklinville Roller Rink became more than just a night out. That’s where a young Grace DeCastro met her late husband, Jack. Their marriage was blessed with a son, Jack Jr. (Mindy) and daughter, Joanne, 9 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandson. Grace was pre deceased by daughter, Jacqueline DeVault and 2 grandsons, David Noll and Michael Miller, a brother, Joseph Thomas, sisters, Dorothy Burke, Beatrice DeCastro, Helen Carty and her twin, Ruth Shrader.
Come celebrate 87 giving years Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. at Daley Life Celebration Studio where the service will be at 11a.m. Burial Trinity Episcopal Church Cemetery.
