Grace Choron, 97 of Shelby County

Grace Choron found eternal peace on 9 March 2018. Grace was born 4 November 1920 in Shelby County and lived to be 97. She enjoyed a lifetime of events, monumental milestones, and a wonderful family.

Grace graduated Center High School with the class of 39. Afterwards, she would marry the love of her life and be together with him for 59 years. She worked a variety of jobs ranging from farm work with her family to Western Auto. But she would find her biggest success with opening her own floral business known as Grace’s Nursery, where she provided some of the best floral products to Shelby County for over 30 years.

After her retirement, she enjoyed a little travel and spending more time enjoying her hobbies which included watching the Dallas Cowboys, wrestling, and spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She would be the first to tell you that, all though we mourn the loss of a loved one, it is the acceptance of Jesus that grants us eternal life.
