Grace Lindsay Asay was born April 6, 1937, in Lovell, Wyoming to Geralda Franzoni and Edwin LeRoy Lindsay. Grace was the youngest of 8 children.
She attended school in Lovell. She loved sports and had many good friends. She met the love of her life, Jay William Banks Asay, and married him. After marriage, they moved to the family farm in Frannie. There they raised 5 children.
Grace devoted her life to her family, church, and the farm. As a family they loved to go to the mountains and visit Yellowstone National Park on the days away from the farm where they raised dairy cows. Grace was not only a busy homemaker she also helped drive tractor and put-up hay.
She loved her children immensely. One thing she truly enjoyed was shopping with her daughter Toni for beanie babies. They became addicts and developed quite the collection.
In July of 2021, Grace faced her own medical challenges when she fell and broke her hip. She was in and out of hospitals and rehab centers up until the day before Christmas, when she was finally able to return home. She was very thankful for her grandson, Shawn, who stayed with her at her home until the time of her death.
