Mijokovic, Grace R.

Entered into Eternal Life at the age of 101.  Preceded in death by her husband, Matthew Mijokovic, and longtime companion, Donald Reilly.

Loving mother of Nancy Mathews and Kathleen (Michael) Hargarten.  Cherished grandma of Amy (Darren) Michalak, Stacy (Mark) Driskell, Craig (Fortunata “Maria”) Waszak, Jennifer (Josh) Carrico, Matthew (Alison) Hargarten, Kelly (Jason) Kristbaum.  Sweet GG of Dylan, Logan, Gaby, Tyler M., Sydney, Max, Tyler D., Layla, Vera, Grace, Tanner, and Kennedy.

Dear sister of the late Lena (Rocco) Alberti, the late Joe (Marie) Vetrano, the late Virginia (Harland) Parks, the late Mary (Bill) Donahue, the late Inno (Mae) Vetrano, Kathy (Emil) Kriss, the late Sam (Ginny) Vetrano, Angie Kienzle, and Fran (Scott) Reardon.  Further left to cherish her memory are nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Grace worked at Ladish Corporation (now ATI Forged Products) as an executive secretary for 40+ years, then after retirement she started her own business, GM Secretarial, at 65 years of age.  She was a lifelong caregiver to many, including her husband Matthew, and her companion Don.  Grace had a passion for gardening and was known for her spaghetti and meatballs and her Italian vinaigrette dressing.  She will be remembered as the only Italian we know that hated garlic!

A special thank you to the staff at Village at Manor Park (Memory Care Unit) for the care and compassion shown to the family for the last several years of Grace’s life.

We are grateful for 101 years of “Amazing Grace” here on earth.
She is now an Angel among us.
