Celebration of Grace Vincent
12 April 1934 - 25 May 2017
Grace at New Roots

There were beautiful recollections of Grace on 3 June 2017, when 150 people filled Pitsmoor Methodist Church for a Celebration and Thanksgiving for her life, conducted by Revd. Ian Lucraft. Frederick Stafford spoke on India and Ulster, Faith and James Vincent on family in Sheffield, Andrew Weeks on New Roots and Ashram Community, and grandson Reuben on Life at 178 Abbeyfield Road. David Blunkett sent a tribute, Coun Jackie Drayton spoke on community in Pitsmoor and Burngreave, and John Vincent spoke on celebrating Grace's life and Ministry (see Act Together Newsletter, Autumn 2017).

Obituaries were published in the Guardian, the Sheffield Star, the Sheffield Telegraph, the Methodist Recorder, and the Burngreave Messenger.
