Grace Greta Bostwick
It is with heavy hearts, the family of Grace Greta (Hall) Bostwick, loving wife of the late George A. Bostwick, announce her passing at Kings Way Care Centre, on Friday, December 28, 2018. Born on August 2, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Charles Hall and Mary Agnes Mabel (Cameron) Hall.
Prior to her marriage, Grace worked for the Lantic Sugar Refinery, K.C. Irving and the New Brunswick Telephone Company. Once she and George married in 1948, she was happy and content to be at home, working beside her husband on the family farm and raising her family. Grace was a member of the Anglican Parish of Kingston, attending Trinity Church in Kingston and St. James Church in Long Reach. In later years, she and George enjoyed bus trips in Canada and the USA. Grace belonged to the Kingston Friendship Club and enjoyed getting out to see the people and to attend the various outings. She loved to go to the Kingston markets on Saturday mornings to see friends and neighbours. The family is appreciative to the full and fulfilling life that Grace lead. Her only wish was to be surrounded by her children, their families and love.
