Sincerest condolences to the Inglis families on the passing of Grace. I have fond memories of my early life with Aunty Grace and Uncle Earl. She was the dearest of friends with my mother Maureen over many, many years and I remember them chatting and laughing on the telephone almost daily. A very special person.
I wish you peace and blessings at this sad time.
So sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Inglis. She lived a beautiful long life surrounded by love. She had such style!!
I know that she has left many wonderful memories for her family and friends to share and hope that this will help get through this very difficult time.

It is with fond memories of ‘Auntie’ Grace that I send my condolences to her children especially. Earl and Grace took my mother, Maureen, her life long friend, and me in off the street when we arrived in Canada in 1945 to await my father’s, John, return from the war. They did so willingly and without hesitation and provided a home for us until we settled. Grace was always smiling and gracious and put up with Dougie’s and my antics with enduring patience. Her passing brings back a huge number of warm and humorous recollections. She was a wonderful woman.Lawrence Baswick
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Grace Inglis. I remember very well when Grace served on the board of deacons at Dundas Baptist church during 1980s period when I was in high school. I remember when she led us in prayer during communion when DBC was still under the pastorage of Reverend Gary Caldwell. I remember when Grace moved to Brampton, Ontario for three years and then returned to DBC after it moved to the new Governor’s Road location in Dundas. I remember when Grace was still attending DBC before I moved away just over a decade ago. My thoughts and prayers are with Grace’s family and our friends at Dundas Baptist Church.
