Wagner, Grace passed away on Sunday, January 9, 2011 in Lake Zurich. Grace was born in Waukegan to Alexander and Evelyn (Hart) Hurd on December 19, 1913; the sixth of seven daughters. She was preceded in death by her second husband, Delbert Wagner; six sisters, Hilda Wheelehan, Lillian Sommer, Evelyn Kerr, Elsie Johnson, Margaret Divelbiss, and Florence Johnson; one son, Jack Limp; step-sons, Arthur Wagner and Carl Wagner; two grandsons, Paul Wagner and Billy Wagner; and her beloved cats, Puda and Tonya. She is survived by step-son, Bill Wagner, nine grandchildren; seventeen great grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews, and their children. Grace was devoted to her grandchildren from her two marriages; Debra (Limp) Henry, Cheryl (Limp) Eymann, Sharyn Limp, Chris Wagner, Elizabeth (Wagner) DeStefano, Paul Wagner, Billy Wagner, Gina (Wagner) Chiaramonte, Jason Wagner, Tina Wagner, and Teresa (Wagner) Parrott. She was also blessed with knowing seven of her great grandchildren; Carolyn Henry, Michael Henry, Shawna Ernst, Vanessa Fullam, James Wagner, Jack Wagner, and Oliver Wagner. True to her English heritage, Grace was proud and gracious; a true lady. She adored flowers, had an enviable green thumb and enjoyed being surrounded by her delicate knick-knacks. Grace's ashes will be interred at Northshore Garden of Memories in Gurnee. No services are planned. "Lift up your hearts in peace to thee, God wanted me now; He set me free!"
