Grace was born in Glasgow, Scotland to the late William and Grace Brackenridge Graham. She came to the United States with her parents in 1948. On November 28, 1965, Grace married the love of her life; Ernest W. DeMarco Jr. at Our Lady of Assumption Church. Together they raised five beautiful children. Grace provided daycare to many friends and family treating her "babysitting kids" as if they were her own, keeping track of their accomplishments well into adulthood. Once the last babysitting kid started kindergarten, Grace returned to the work force as a teacher's aide and monitor for the Scotia – Glenville School District. Affectionately known as Mrs. D she felt a great responsibility for the students and staff in each of the buildings she worked. She retired in January 2021. Grace loved the theater and made countless trips to see shows on Broadway. She ushered at Proctor's Theater and traveled the world. By far her favorite destination was the Jersey Shore and Cape May. Her greatest joys were her grandchildren. Regardless of the event "Grandma Grace" was there. Grace was predeceased by her husband Ernest W. DeMarco, Jr., who passed away in 2002, a son Joseph A.
