Grace was born May 12, 1928 in Johnston, SC, one of twelve children born to the late John Bruce Bush and Marie Viola Buddin Bush. She was a graduate of Johnston High School. Grace was a homemaker and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her favorite activities were spending time with and cooking for those she loved. You would often see her outside working in her yard.

Grace loved the Lord. She was a longtime member of Mount Hebron United Methodist Church, the Minnie Shull Circle and a charter member of the Wesley Fellowship Class. The Circle and Fellowship Class are honorary pallbearers.
