Raised in Hillsdale Toronto, Grace married her childhood sweetheart, Bob, and moved to the farm in Bruce Township in 1947 where they resided for 50 years. Grace loved riding motorcycles with her husband and was game for rides with her children too. She was an enthusiastic fan of Leafs hockey, Nascar racing and every endeavor her kids undertook. She was also an avid reader rarely without a book at hand. Grace loved time spent with family and neighbours. She always had a welcoming smile and loved to hear “what’s new with you.” A casual Come and Go Celebration of Life for Grace McKeeman will be held December 8th, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Port Elgin Legion.
