Grace was the last white student to attend an Indian school on the reservation, in a one room cabin for a school house. She attended Dakota Lutheran High School, then on to North Dakota State University, graduating in 1956, majoring in Home Economics and Psychology. While in college, during chemistry class, she met the love of her life, George L. Jackson, and they were married on January 28th, 1955. They had 59 wonderful years together.

Grace was active in teaching Sunday school, was a leader for Vacation Bible School, 4H, PTA, Foster Parent Program through the schools, and Legion Auxiliary member.

Grace loved animals, especially her cats, from little to big, having pictures of cougars all around the house.
