Here is some of her story, perhaps it will ring a bell.
She would have lived, or still lives, most if not all of her life on the family ranch outside of Eureka/Fortuna and is described as somewhat of a “hermit” meaning that she probably did not socialize much. Today, if she is still with us and if she were still on the ranch, she would have a care-giver and a couple of ranch hands. The ranch has a two story home and a smaller cottage as well as a barn on it. Carole described the ranch location as “just outside of Fortuna”.
Supposedly she would be more on the “well off” side of wealth, meaning that perhaps she or her family were more prominent ranchers or business people in the greater Fortuna area.
While her nieces and nephews may have known her as “Aunt Grace”, it certainly does not mean that the community also knew her as “Grace”.
She was married in the late 40’s and 50’s and her husband passed away from the complications of a stroke in the 1950’s.
Thank you for taking your time to read this. If you have any thoughts on this, I would certainly appreciate hearing from you.
I would be very happy to receive any last name that any of you may wish to contribute.
