Grace was born November 20, 1937 the daughter of Charles and Ethel (Kabelman) Bricker.

She grew up in Petoskey and was a graduate of Petoskey High School.

On July 14, 1956 she married the love of her life George Baumgartner in Petoskey. They were blessed with two children, two grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Grace's love for her family knew no bounds and the family reunions she helped to organize and oversee were very special times indeed. Grace loved the outdoors and especially enjoyed tending her vegetable and flower gardens. She was an avid fan of the Detroit Tigers and whenever her beloved Tigers were on TV she was right there rooting them on through good years and bad.

Grace is survived by her husband of more than 56 years George, and by their son, William (Jean) Baumgartner and daughter, Judy (Rob) Eaton; as well as her grandchildren, Daniel (Kailie) Baumgartner and Sheila (James) Smith and her great grandchildren, Beth, Adrianna, Shane and Noah. Also surviving Grace are her sisters, Virginia (Harry) Carls and Donna Bricker-Burrows, sister in law, Sally Bricker and many nieces and nephews; as well as her loving and faithful companions Boxie, Archie and Lucie.

Grace's family would also like to remember her special family members and many wonderful friends whose support has meant so much to Grace and her family over the years. Preceding her in death were her parents and her brothers, Edward, Albert "Sonny" and Allen "Roy" Bricker.

Her heart was larger than life itself and she will be greatly missed. Her life will be celebrated during a memorial service that will take place this coming Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at Stone Funeral Home. Pastor Henry "Ryp" Hankins will officiate.
