Grace was born on July 19, 1942, in Dubuque, Iowa, daughter of Louis and Clara (Schueller) Gartner. Grace married Lyle D. Daughetee on February 4, 1961, at Holy Ghost Church. Together they enjoyed 44 years of married life, raising 5 children and enjoying their 7 grandchildren.

She worked for the Dubuque Community School District in food service, beginning in 1973 at Kennedy Elementary and then transferring to the Central Kitchen in 1989. She retired in 1999 after thoroughly enjoying her 26 years of service.

Grace loved to bake and cook, frequently entertaining her large family for Sunday dinners. She was a laundry wizard, there was no stain she could not conquer. There was nothing she enjoyed more than spending time with her grandkids. She was known for her “Grammy Subs” and baked goods, each individually wrapped. Her other hobbies included gardening while admiring the hummingbirds, conversations on the patio, and frequenting the local casinos.
