Her hobbies included crocheting, doing crafts, playing games, watching nature, having conversations, drawing, doing word searches and sudoku, listening to 50’s music, particularly “Fats” Domino, watching Jimmy Swigart, and attending sporting events to watch her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Her greatest enjoyment in life was spending precious time with her family.

Grace is survived by her daughters, Selena C. T. Shellenberger and Angela L. Stahr and her husband Herman H. Stahr, Jr.; grandchildren, Skipper Shellenberger and his fiance’ Sabrey (Bree) Zimmerman and Christa Metz and her husband Christopher; great-grandchildren, Wyatt Shellenberger, Charlotte Shellenberger, Grace Shellenberger, and Carletta Metz; sister, Mary Shellenberger; numerous nieces and nephews; and her compassionate caregivers, Lori Auker, Nicole Lehman, Kiera Keister, Margaret Glass, Skipper Shellenberger, Paula Pannebaker, Kallie Cornwell, the late Ruth Knouse.
