In Memory of Grace Schradle
Grace Beverly Ann Schradle of Clayton, WI, passed away on September 16th, 2019, at the young age of 16. Our gift from God, our sweet amazing Grace was taken from us too soon and unexpectedly, but the life that she did live was to the fullest, all while sporting a huge smile.
From the day she entered this world, Grace was beaming with passion, joy, and positivity wherever she went. She was always happy. She had the humor and beauty of her mom and the occasional wild hair and outgoing magnetic personality of her father. She carried the most contagious smile and from-your-belly-laugh that will be cherished forever. Grace loved life and all those in it. She had a kind, humble, beautiful, generous, gentle, loyal and loving heart. She touched so many lives. Grace was brave and fearless. She was never afraid to try something new and was always looking for an adventure. She always thought outside the box. She was never afraid to say what was on her mind. Grace set goals this year. She wanted to earn student of the month at Clayton High School. She wanted to pick a college after taking her ACT. She wanted to attend UW-Eau Claire or Superior to earn a degree in education. Her locker quote was: “Be legendary.” One of her mottos was: “Friends, coffee, and sunshine.” Grace’s hobbies included many things: volleyball (her passion), basketball, softball, riding horseback, cuddling with her cat (Georgina), shopping, drinking an occasional Caribou coffee, going out to eat, going to the movies, spending time with her best friends (Abbie, who was like a sister; Amelia; Corey; Logan; and MJ). She also loved hanging out with her boyfriend (Jacob), teammates, cousins, older siblings, entire club family, Bill & Jolene, grandparents, and Mom & Dad. This world was better with her in it. Now, she will live within all of us.
She is survived by her parents: Chris and Stacey Schradle; siblings: Kaitlyn (Evan) Jamar of Duluth, MN, Kelsey (Jacob Giersch) Anderson of Menomonie, Jake (Jayden Tetner) Anderson of Menomonie; grandparents: Danny and Susan Sutton of Shell Lake, William and Beverly Schradle of Clayton; aunts and uncles: Suzanne Schradle of Yuma, AZ, Michael and Diane Schradle of Clayton, Patrick and Shannon Schradle of Cumberland, Jeremy and Amanda Schradle of Clayton, Ryan and Lesley Schradle of New Richmond, Shawn and Nell Schradle of Clayton, Nicholas and Beth Schradle of Clayton; special aunt, Trudy Hamilton of Clayton and longtime family friend, William Franko of Green Bay; Godparents Heidi and Larry Shafer; 26 cousins, many other relatives and friends.
