Grace was born on December 9, 1943, in Wallace, WV, on the Kincaid Farm, the only daughter of the late Steve and Ella Price Stout. She cared for them in their times of need, until their passing.

She provided care for children there for twenty-seven years, until she retired in June of 1999. Upon retirement Grace and Robert returned to Lumberport, and later moved to Clarksburg where she was a member of the Central Church of Christ. She enjoyed camping, flowers, and music.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandparents, and several aunts and uncles.
