Grace Colleen Reichert

Grace Colleen Reichert of Graham, Wash., died Feb. 29, 2016, in Tacoma. She was 87.

She spent her life in a family full of boys, developed a tough personality to deal with the rowdy group and quickly became the family centerpiece. She was an artist who enjoyed painting and flowers. Through her life she studied and compiled her family history, immersing herself in her love of Native American culture which included attending pow wows. She travelled to visit her birthplace many times, an adventure she held dear. Most of all she loved her family and spending time with them.

She is survived by daughter Suzanne Egeland (Gary) of Mesquite, Ariz.; sons Michael Reichert (Dawn), Bob Reichert and Chris Reichert (Darlene), all of Maple Valley, Lee Reichert (Sally) of Black Diamond and Paul Reichert of Tacoma; 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to the White Earth Reservation Area Community Fund.
