KEYSER, W.Va. — Grace Logsdon, 88, of Keyser, went to reunite with her family in heaven on Monday, Aug. 26, 2013 at Heartland of Keyser.

Born on Nov. 9, 1924 at Pickens, W.Va., in Randolph County, Grace is the daughter of the late Louis and Rosa (Betler) Haslebacher.  Her husband, Robert C. Logsdon preceded her in death on May 2, 2001. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by an infant brother, Louis; a sister, Lillian Clark; a brother-in-law, Charles Logsdon; father-in-law, Samuel Logsdon; mother-in-law, Maude Broom Logsdon; a nephew, Jerry Stark; and great-great nephew, Dillon Biggs.

Grace graduated in 1942 from Pickens High School. During World War II she worked at Wright Patterson Air Field. There she met her husband to be, Robert. After her marriage she and Robert moved to Keyser, where she began working for Perfection Garment Company and So-Rite Garment Company.

She is survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Herbert and Joyce Haslebacher of Clarksburg, W.Va.; a sister-in-law, Betty Logsdon of Fountain, W.Va.; nephews, Jeff Logsdon and wife Ena, Denny Clark and wife Lorraine and Charles Haslebacher and wife Janet; nieces, Linda Stark, Elnora Ganoe, Sandra Hoffman, Donna Grooms, and Doris Haslebacher. Also surviving are several great-nephews, great-nieces, great-great-nep-hews and great-great-nieces.

Grace was well known in her community and will be remembered as a woman with a kind heart and she was always willing to help out a friend in need. Her many kind deeds will not be forgotten. Grace loved tending to her flowers and enjoyed being outdoors as often as she could. She was a member of Fountain Valley Homemakers Club and WMF of Fountain United Brethren Church.

Grace was blessed with having several loving caregivers during her time of need and wanted them to know how much she appreciated their help, Jeff and Ena Logsdon, Linda Stark, Dawn Mallow and Vicki Lewis.

Although Grace and Robert did not have children of their own, her nephews and nieces brought joy and happiness to their home throughout the years and they loved them as their own.

Friends will be received at the Markwood Funeral Home, Keyser, WV on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2013 from 5 to 7 p.m.

A funeral service will be conducted at the Fountain United Brethren Church, Headsville Road, on Friday, Aug. 30, 2013 at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Daryl Elliot officiating. Friends will be received at the church one hour before services.

Interment will follow in Fort Ashby Cemetery.
