Grace Lillian Albrecht, age 94, resident of the Park View Nursing Home in Woodville, died January 24, 2015. Grace was born June 24, 1920 in Woodville, the daughter of William and Eva (Nielsen) Nelson. She attended Maple Grove School for grades 1 - 8 and Woodville High School, graduating the Class of 1938. She furthered her education at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls for rural teaching course and received a 2 year degree. She taught at Plainview School for 3 years.

Grace was united in marriage to Sgt. Willard Albrecht, also of rural Woodville, on October 1, 1943. They were married in Macon, Georgia, where Willard was stationed at Camp Wheeler, during World War II. The Army then transferred them to Memphis, Tennessee. After his discharge they returned to rural Woodville to live, but continued to travel back to the South to visit lifelong friends. Grace and Willardís marriage was blessed with 2 daughters, Linda and Lori.

Grace went back to teaching and taking summer school classes, eventually earning a 4 year degree. She taught at Wilson, Broadview, Denver, Cylon, and Spring Valley Schools. She retired in 1990, after teaching for a total of 39 years.

In her quiet time, Grace enjoyed reading, playing cards and crewel embroidery work. Grace had a kind and gracious heart which was welcoming to those around her. She treasured her time with her family, especially her grandsons, Mitchell and Jace.

Grace was preceded in death by her husband, Willard, in 1992. At that time, she sold their farm in the Township of Springfield and moved into the Village of Woodville. She transferred her membership from Holy Cross Church in Glenwood City to Zion Lutheran Church in Woodville. She was also preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Lawrence Nelson; sisters, Marie Geurkink and Jeanette Busch; and son-in-law, Daniel Reynolds.
