On Monday morning, May 23, 2011, while resting in the arms of her loving parents, Grace Elizabeth Lee was called to heaven to be held in the arms of Jesus, one week short of her first birthday. Born on May 29, 2010, to Jacob and Alyssa Lee of Baxter, Grace touched many lives and was loved deeply by family and friends. Her life was a brief gift, too brief, but she lived it to the fullest. She taught us to love, to laugh, to play and to pray together. She taught us to be strong. Her infectious smile and sparkling eyes captured the hearts of all that knew her.
She will be greatly missed by her parents; grandparents, Larry and Chris Lee, Wayne and Pat Altrichter; great-grandfather, Robert Hanson; great-grandmother, Marie Altrichter; uncles and aunt, Nathan (Rachel) Lee and baby cousin, Lily; Robert Lee; uncle and godfather, Benjamin Altrichter; and godmother, Caitlin Altrichter. She will be greeted in heaven by her deceased great-grandparents.
During her brief time with us, our amazing Grace enjoyed silly songs, rhyming stories, hugging her stuffed animals, playing with her dog Bella, giggling at her “scary monsters” and being held by her parents, grandparents, family and all who adored her.
Funeral services will be held at St. Francis Church in Brainerd at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 27. Visitation is at 10 a.m. with family invited to gather at 9 a.m.
Dearest Baby Grace,
“Please know that our greatest blessing was having you.”
