On April 20th, 2018, Grace Berry (nee Feaver) passed away peacefully in her 93rd year at Spencer House, Orillia and is now in the presence of her Lord and saviour and her beloved husband Ralph (Bus). Born in Toronto, Grace married her sweetheart and soulmate Ralph in 1946.  Ralph and Grace lived in Northern Ontario in the early years but lived most of their lives in Barrie and Orillia.  Grace showed incredible strength and courage as both Grace and Ralph supported each other through their strong faith with the infant death of their son Timothy Thomas in 1952 and daughter Kathryn Bethany in 1954, an unimaginable loss.  Grace was a devoted wife and mother and years later cherished spending time with the grandchildren.  Grace also supported her husband and family during the years Ralph was a police officer.  How she enjoyed the family vacations at Fair Havens Family Camp.  Although losing Ralph in January 2017 was extremely difficult after 70 incredible years of marriage, she managed to overcome loneliness and persevere during the past 15 months.  She is survived by her children Matt and wife Rosimar, Tim and wife Heidi, Beth and husband Paul, grandchildren Lisa (Greg), Mark, Michael, Tariq (Jennifer), David, Cherie and Stephen (Chrystal) and great grandchildren Adara, Chloe, Orion, Logan, Emma and Amelia. Also mourning her loss are sisters Marianne and Iris. Predeceased by her husband Ralph, infant son Timothy, infant daughter Kathryn, sisters Dorothy and Evelyn and brother Doug. Grace was deeply committed to her family and we will all miss her dearly. The family extends its heartfelt thanks to the staff at Spencer House in Orillia for their kind and compassionate care of Grace and assistance to the family during the last few weeks. In keeping with Grace's wishes, cremation has taken place, visitation will be held at the Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West St. N., Orillia on Friday, May 11, 2018 from 2 - 4 & 7 - 9 p.m. A Service to Celebrate Grace's Life will be held at the Mundell Funeral Home on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 11 am.
