Grace , was married to one of my favorite Uncles T.H. it was always a pleasure when we visited them that they welcomed us with open arms, and were such good Christian people. I know she will be greatly missed. I will not be able to attend the services, due to living and working in South Carolina, but Heather, Edna and all family members, you will certainly be in my thoughts and prayers.

Grace was such a nice person. Her sister and family Kit and Pearle Queen lived next door to us in Cullowhee growing up. We loved TH and Grace and their daughter when they come to visit. I talked to her a few years ago several times and she was so glad to hear from me she was so sweet. Linda Hughes Collins

So sorry to hear this, we were just getting to know each other. She was so sharp, we discussed relatives, catching me up on some of the Queens. A lady you could love the first time you met her. Rest In Peace sweet cousin. Prayers for the family.

Sweet loving lady. My Daddy, Granville Queen, Graces brother, loved her dearly. We had such a wonderful visit in May. I am thankful they were able to see each other again and reminisce about days gone by.
