Grace Phillips

Nu-Roc Community Healthcare is happy to announce that Grace Phillips has been selected as the newest “Resident of the Season”.

Grace is the only daughter born to her parents’; she had 4 brothers. She graduated from Marinette High School. It was in Marinette, at church, that she met her future husband, Delbert. Delbert had a job working in the Laona area so that’s where the newlywed’s made their home. Grace actually worked at Nu-Roc for a few years, in the dietary department. She also drove school bus for the Laona School District for many years.

Grace and Delbert were able to celebrate 65 years of marriage and were blessed with 4 children. That family has grown to include 13 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and 1 great, great grandchild. This large family gives Grace much pleasure, she is very proud of them.

Keeping busy has never been a problem for Grace. She has many interests and a natural curiosity. She always had a beautiful vegetable garden and loved the many flowers she grew. She occasionally still gets bouquets of flowers picked from her yard. Grace was an excellent cook, and she enjoyed doing it. She liked to play cards and was an avid swimmer. She spent time bowling and was always eager to go camping. Needle work and reading were always favorite past times. Grace was a very involved ‘band mother’ while her children were in school, and was a member of the church choir and women’s group. Grace remains very active and involved. She sends and receives countless cards and letters, does word puzzles, and reads. She loves the Packers and the Brewers and the Badgers. She closely follows college basketball. Grace is always kind and gracious, she keeps treats on hand for staff members and goes out of her way to help other residents. Grace is meticulous about her appearance and has jewelry to match each of her outfits.

The staff, administration, and other residents of Nu-Roc are all very fond of Grace and congratulate her on this honor.
