Grace served Philly Deaf in more ways than can be counted, and did so for as long as can be remembered. She was a charter member of Philly Deaf; which began as DCC in 1995. Grace served to mentor, help, and teach the Deaf women of Philly Deaf. She served on the worship team, was one of the primary cooks for the church, and was usually the first to volunteer to help. She was first at church on Sunday morning setting up coffee and tea for fellowship and Cross Training study. She led a monthly ministry of Bible discussion at Valley View Senior Nursing Care Center, and would go just to hang out and chat with some of the residents every month. We could, just as easily, call her Dorcas, as one who was very involved in the ministry of Paul the apostle. The more you know about her, the more clearly was her commitment to Christ, through her service to people and His church. She was a valuable friend and a spiritual encouragement to all that she met, and will be greatly missed.
