After she decided to put her baking hands to rest she volunteered at the Burton Bridge Corner Shoppe for many years. She made many friends while working at the Burton Cafe and the Corner Shoppe.

Special moments of her life included being selected as the 2020 Grand Marshall of the Burton Cotton Gin Parade. She took great pride in her family, especially her granddaughters and great grandchildren. Grace was very proud of all their many accomplishments.
