Grace was born January 5th, 1928, to Andrew and Lena (Johnson) Schipper, in Aplington, IA. She went to school at Ripley #8. Grace married Donald Huisman on July 27th, 1948, at the family farm near Aplington. They were blessed with 3 children who brought much love to their Christian home. She also spent her days helping her husband farm and later worked as a cook at the Wellsburg School. Grace enjoyed cooking and spending time with her family. Music was a big part of her family life as she sang, and played piano, accordion, guitar, and harmonica. Her family will always remember the joy her music brought to everyone. Her words of advice were “Have a song in your heart – something you can take to Heaven with you.” Grace was a member of the Wellsburg Reformed Church, teaching both Catechism and Sunday School, and belonged to the Women’s Guild.
Grace will be missed by her loving husband of 68 years, Don; three children, Dean (Nancy) Huisman of Wellsburg, Donna (Jim) Kadner of Conrad, and Darren (Ardene) Huisman of Orange City; nine grandchildren, Justin (Kara) Huisman, Nathan Huisman, Quentin (Ashley) Huisman, Shannan (Ryan) Callaway, Lisa (Travis) Hans, Aaron (Ashley) Huisman, Brandon (Erica) Huisman, Jordan (Meagan) Huisman, Kalynn (Jon) Hale, and 12 great-grandchildren with another arriving in February, sister Hattie Behrends, brothers Paul (Irma) Schipper, and Lee (Dorothy) Schipper, and sisters-in-law Albertha Schipper, Esther Schipper and Imogene Huisman.
