Grace Eleanor Sheftic, age 88, passed away on Friday, June 30, 2017, surrounded by her family at her residence located in Centreville, Virginia after a brief illness.

Grace was born in Pittston, Pennsylvania on August 10, 1928. Upon marriage, she moved to Jenners, Pennsylvania, where she resided for almost 30 years raising her family. She then moved to Falls Church, Virginia living there for 25 years.

Grace was preceded in death by her parents Louis and Agnes Sunderly, her brothers Joseph and Louis Sunderly, and sister Mary Agnes Barrett.

Grace is survived by her beloved husband of 66 years, Stephen Sheftic, her children Barbara Kissell, Sharon Bonney(Kyle), Stephen Sheftic(Joyce) and Joanne Wiser (Larry). Grace also has four grandchildren Tristan Kissell, Austin Bonney, Victoria Sheftic and Abigail Wiser.

As most may know, her family was the light of her life and she was happiest when they were together. She especially enjoyed her family's yearly vacations to the Outer Banks which has spanned almost 30 years.

I will always love you.
