Wife of Leo Beauchot
Mother of Richard and Luella
*Grace was my great-grandma. She grew up on the historic Lincoln Highway (Sugar Ridge Rd.) down the way from Townley, Indiana. She was a very loving granny to her grandchildren and us great-grandkids. She was an awesome cook and her family get-togethers were always anticipated. Her homemade cookies and hard candy were always on hand. Granny always had RC Cola and goodies to wind us kids up. Her house was always open for us kids to drop in and she always had the best stories of the past and local history.
Granny outlived both of her children, Richard at the young age of 37 in 1964 due to heart problems and her daughter Luella to cancer in 1994.
Granny is loved and missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.
