She was born on March 7, 1932 in Elmhurst, IL, to the late Gladys (Gillespie) and William Meinhard.
On August 7, 1953, Grace exchanged vows with the love of her life Dale R. Lindelius. They got married at the Martha-Mary Chapel in Dearborn, MI, with their family and friends by their side. Dale and Grace were happily married for 63 years until Dale passed on September 21, 2016.

Grace was an amazing ice skater, hiker, camper, swimmer, Water Safety Instructor, and Choir member. If you knew Grace, she was always proper and stylish in her appearance. Other talents and interests include; sewing, decorating, floral design, writing, hospitality, time with pets or watching animals, and spending time with friends. Her greatest joy came from spending time with God and studying the Bible.
