April 10, 1939 – August 3, 2019
Grace Lillian Duckering, 80, of Lacombe was born on April 10, 1939 in Rimbey, and passed into the presence of her Lord Jesus Christ on August 3, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She will be lovingly remembered by Clarence, her husband of 56 years; 8 step- children: Shirley (Ed) Hutzkal; Deanna (Cliff ) Knight; Victor (Jean); Carolyn Torhjelm; Linda (Wayne) Ludwig; Ken (Rita); Gord (Pat); Betty (Brian) Cave; 3 daughters: Faith (Darryl) Johnson; Judy (Doug) Herbert, and Connie (Ben) Yaney; 37 grandchildren, 79 great-grandchildren, 24 great-great- grandchildren, sisters Shirley Street; Doris (Ron) Lund; brother Les Bassant; and numerous nieces and nephews. Grace was predeceased by her parents Leslie and Doris Bassant; sister Dorothy Hager; and step-son Terry Duckering.
Grace will be remembered as a woman of God who lived out the meaning of her name in remarkable ways. A superb cook, she delighted to exercise her gifts of hospitality in welcoming others to her home and table. Her ready smile, kind heart and infectious laughter had a way of quickly putting others at ease. She was an excellent singer and loved to sing solos as well as harmonizing in duets, trios and choral music. Grace had wonderful skills in various crafts – crocheting, cross-stitch, beadwork and sewing – and her creations will long be treasured by her loved ones. She also loved to garden, delighting in the beauty of flowers as well as in canning and preserving the produce of her gardens.
A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at Crossroads Community Church in Red Deer.
