Grace M. Card

April 18, 1944 — May 6, 2024

Sagamore Beach, MA

Grace M. Card (80) of Sagamore Beach, MA, passed away on May 6th, 2024. Grace was married to George E. Card Jr for 58 years prior to his passing in May of 2023. She is survived by her two children: her son, Robert E. Card, and his wife, Jean Card, of Madison, CT; and her daughter, Andrea Stevens, and her husband, Russ, of Boxford, MA. Grace is also survived by her sister, Patricia, and her husband, Jerry Prew, of Carver, MA. She adored her grandchildren: Garrett, Alexandra, and Nick Stevens; Andrew, Will, and Michael Card; along with her wonderful and loving nieces and nephews.

Grace was born and raised in Braintree, MA and graduated from Sacred Heart High School in 1961. After high school she had close friends who all traveled to many destinations including the World’s Fair in both Queens, NY 1964 and then Montreal in 1967. She worked for The New England Telephone Company, where she met George, and married in 1967. In 1972 they purchased a small parcel of land just 100 feet from the home she was raised in. They built a modest home where they would raise their children with great neighbors and friends. Grace was always active in her children’s school and community. She was a successful realtor for Jack Conway Co. where she and George went on regular annual trips for top performers.

Grace and George retired to Sagamore Beach in 2000 where they built their dream home, a small humble cape with bunkbeds for the grandchildren and a short walk to the beach. They loved their neighbors and their time out on the back deck. Grace was known for her spectacular garden. She spent most of her days working, admiring, and shopping to add to the beautiful landscape she and George built together. Those who would visit always left with cut flowers or a seedling she pulled out on the spot with directions to plant it soon. Many have those flowers growing in their gardens to be enjoyed for years to come.

Grace and George spent many winters on Little Gasparilla Island in Florida with dear friends. She was known for organizing and winning the yearly golf cart decorating parade contests and planning ladies’ luncheons. She should be remembered for always having beautiful fruit trays for guests, matching t-shirts for the grandchildren after a long day at the beach, putting lobsters to sleep, her famous Thanksgiving stuffing, and of course her Irish Terrier Emmit. She celebrated her 80th birthday with her family and newest friends at Keystone Place. She so enjoyed her community at Keystone where she felt loved and cared for. We take comfort in knowing she is reunited with George, and they are both happy and healthy, watching over all of us. Grace and George’s ashes will be spread together at a later time.
