Grace Marie Roderick passed away on Monday, January 14, 2002 in Torrance. Born May 23, 1910 in Chicago, Ill, Grace was almost 92 at her passing. She is survived by her son Mike Roderick and her daughter-in-law Mary Roderick. Grace was preceded in death by her loving husband Harry Roderick. Memorial services are being held on Wednesday, January 16 at 10:00 A.M. at the Convent Chapel (to the right of main church) of St. Lawrence, 1940 South Prospect Avenue, Redondo Beach, CA. 90277. A viewing precedes the service at 9:00 A.M. Grace O’Malley married her husband Harry Roderick in 1935. Most of their devoted 54 year marriage was spent in Dolton, Illinois. After Harry’s death, Grace moved from Dolton to Los Vegas in 1995 and then to Torrance, CA in 1997. She was healthy and had a zest for life until her last five months when she began to progressively lose more of her memory. Her death was a merciful one where she simply stopped breathing and then she was gone. We will all miss her and we wish her well as she is reunited with Harry.
