Born in Van Buren, Maine
Resided in Niantic, CT


Niantic - Grace D. Roy, a longtime resident of Niantic, went to be with the Lord on July 14, 2017, peacefully in the comfort of her home. Grace was born Sept. 14, 1950, in Van Buren, Maine. She attended St. John's High School, graduating in 1968. In 1971, Grace received her degree in nursing at St. Anne's College of Nursing, in Fall River, Mass.

After graduation, Grace moved to Connecticut and began her lifelong career in nursing at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown. Grace was a proud employee of Lawrence + Memorial Hospital in New London for the last 40 years in the thoracic unit, retiring from her life's passion in 2014, earning many commendations and letters of thanks throughout her tenure.

Grace was a dedicated member of the St. Agnes Church parish in Niantic. She also enjoyed knitting, cooking, and spending time with her children and grandchildren, who were everything to her.

Grace is survived by her son, Forrest Elie Andrews of Waterford, and her daughter, Amanda Lorraine Andrews of Niantic. She was also blessed with two grandchildren whom she cherished more than anything, Sarah Grace Andrews and Dylan Elie Andrews. She was predeceased by her sister, Yvette Dube of Deep River, and father and mother, Elie and Germaine Roy of Van Buren, Maine.

Grace would like to extend her deepest gratitude to Dr. Benjamin Newton and all the staff at the Smilow Cancer Center in Waterford and Kathy Franco of The Center For Hospice Care, and Amanda would like to express sincere gratitude to Dawn McDermott for the loving care and guidance received at home.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 AM Monday in St. Agnes Church, Niantic with interment to follow in Jordan Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please contribute any donations to the Lawrence + Memorial Volunteer Program.
