Grace Matilda Utter

March 31, 1930 ~ February 22, 2020 (age 89)



     Our loved one, Grace, went to be with her lord and savior February 22, 2020.  She will again be dancing and walking hand in hand on the beach with her loving husband, Gordon.  Grace loved spending time with her family.  She had a love for nature that included watching birds and hummingbirds on feeders, planting flowers with pink roses being her favorite.  She loved the ocean and beach while enjoying the warmth of the sun and the sand beneath her toes.  And throughout the years, she loved and enjoyed the many kitties and dogs that became a part of her family.  During her life Grace was very creative.  She enjoyed decorating her home, cooking and baking, sewing, flower arranging and antique shopping, all done to perfection.  These and more brought her such happiness and joy.

     Grace is survived by two daughters Rebecca St. Denis and Kathy Karp; her husband Ron Karp; six grandchildren, Carrie Salinas (Wes), Chris Days (Phil), Israel Wilson (Teckeish), Josiah Wilson, Samuel Lloyd and Chad Karp; eight great-grandchildren Tyler, Abigail, Rylee, Hailey, Natalie, Sophie, Taja, Logan, Allyson and cousins.  In Lieu of flowers, the family asks a donation be made to the Alzheimer’s Association P.O Box 96011, Washington DC 20090-6011.
