Grace grew up in Milford and Delta Utah before moving to Salt Lake in 1941 when the family was moved by Union Pacific Railroad Co as part of the war effort. She graduated from West High School and went on to work as an office manager and bookkeeper for EVCO House of Hose until she retired in 1992. Mom enjoyed bowling, golf, and watching all genres of sports. She followed the Utah Jazz, University of Utah and Bingham Baseball. Grace enjoyed supporting her children in their sports, cheer and dance activities. She worked behind the scenes in the Bingham Boosters, Bingham Ute Conference Football and West Jordan Little League organizations. She was a dedicated General Hospital viewer after retirement. She had the Imai gambling gene and would be happy with a “Royal Flush” or “4 Aces with a Kicker” on the poker slot machines in Wendover, Mesquite or the California hotel in Las Vegas. She always carried her good luck frogs on her players card chain and in her purse when she was gambling. She and Dad loved to go on bowling trips together, spend time in Wendover, Las Vegas and Mesquite either golfing, bowling or gambling. Grace was a straightforward kind of person; she would tell you exactly how she felt at any time. Sometimes under her breath to those close by. Grace was not very religious, but we would often catch her on Sunday mornings listening to “The Spoken Word” so that she could listen to “The Mormon Tabernacle Choir” she could not get used to the name change.\n\nGrace was a member of the Mountain View and Riverbend Ladies Golf Association for many years. She would spend most Tuesdays at the golf course with her many golf friends. We express our appreciation to all those golfing friends who invited her to lunch when due to an injury she was no longer able to play but they included her in lunches and banquets. Mom really loved her golfing friends and talked about you all with love.\n\nWe would like to give a special thanks to Eva, Kevin and Martha from Rocky Mountain Hospice. We also want to thank the staff at Rocky Mountain Care Riverton. A heartfelt thanks to the Copper Creek Senior Living in the Advanced Care Wing. The nurses and CNA’s that provided support and comfort for mom up until her passing. We as a family cannot express our gratitude for your tireless efforts. Grace commented many times that the gentle care you all provided made her feel comfortable. We also want to thank Jenkins-Soffe Funeral Home for assisting the family with all the arrangements.
