SEARLES, Grace Marie, 100, was taken into the loving arms of our Lord on Wednesday, October 8, 2003. She was preceded in death in 1999 by her husband, Carl of 69 years and her granddaughter, Heather. She is survived by her children, Norma Weeks and Charles Searles (Deanna), and her sister, Wilma O'Herin.
Grace was the second of four daughters born to Gertrude and William Horstig on August 8, 1903, in Syracuse, NY. In 1953 Grace, Carl and their two children moved to Tucson to escape the severe winters in Ohio.
Grace was a woman who lived her faith daily, a living example of her name where an unkind word was never spoken. She studied the scriptures, prayed daily and listened to "Thru the Bible" with J. Vernon Magee. Grace attended Palo Verde, Eastside, and Craycroft Baptist Churches until she was no longer able to attend.
Grace leaves five grandchildren, Mike, Mark and Julie Searles, Margie and Charlene Weeks; ten great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She will be missed by each one with tender affection. Norma, Charles and family wish to thank Della and her staff at Lovecare for the love and care they provided for Grace. In the hearts of her family she will always remain "Amazing Grace." Graveside services will be held Saturday, October 11, 11:00 a.m. at Southlawn Cemetery.
