On August 16, 2016, Grace Crecelius Keeler passed away peacefully but unexpectedly in her home. Her mother, brother and sister, husband, three beautiful children and all that knew and loved her are shocked and devastated by this sudden loss. Grace was a loving, gentle, and kind-hearted soul. She always found time to laugh despite life’s challenges and she cared deeply for her family.

Grace left this world far too soon, and with no warning. Her family is struggling to make arrangements for funeral services and ensure her young children have as much care as possible while they mourn the loss of their mother. To make matters worse, Graces husband was recently laid of from work. So they are in an extremely rough spot right now.

No mother should have to endure the loss of a child, no man should lose his wife, and no children should lose the love and support of their mother at such a young age. Please consider making a contribution to Grace’s family to ease their burden in this time of heartbreak and transition. They are genuinely in need of any support you can give. Your generosity will help cover the cost of funeral expenses, care for her children, and to ensure that her family has a stable home environment as they start the school year. It will also help cover the cost of a new vehicle as the only one they had broke down and is not repairable.

Thank you and love to all

This is a link to just some of Graces artwork if anyone wants to check it out. Most of the stuff on there is from years ago but you can see how talented she was. I was always so jealous that I didn't get the artistic gene from our Dad like she did. She was amazing. ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you all so much for the donations. You all are amazing! Love to all ❤️❤️❤️

Found another great picture of Grace :). She had to have been around 16 here. She liked to get all dressed up in a bunch of old things my Mom had saved and I would take pictures. We have lots of silly pictures like this one. I'm so glad we have these memories in pictures ❤️❤️❤️

To make matters worse their only car broke down the other day and we found out today that it is not fixable :(. So now they are in desperate need of a new car as well.
My brother in law is not one to ask for help but they desperately need it. Please consider donating to help them get back on track. Every little bit helps! All money will go directly to them to get them through this extremely difficult time.
And again, to all that have donated so far, thank you so very much. We are all so very grateful for your generosity and support.
Love to all ❤️❤️❤️

Although I never met Grace, in an odd way I knew her through her grandfather, John Crecelius, who loved her dearly. John's mother and his sister Marsha and their family are my good friends, and a long time ago I new Gail Barrows, Grace's mother. I am so sorry for this tragic loss. God Bless You All
