Grace Plessinger

d. May 5, 2017

Naples, Florida

Grace Harvey Plessinger was born June 4, 1934 to Hubert and Emma (Beebee) Harvey in Logan, Iowa. She grew up riding horses and attended school in Logan. She graduated from Logan High School in 1952. She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a teaching degree. She became a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority while attending college. After graduation she moved to San Francisco, California, where she met Phillip Plessinger while he was in the Navy. The couple was married in 1962. After a short stint in Sacramento, the couple moved to Logan, Iowa to help manage Harvey Brothers and raise their two daughters. Grace and Phil moved to Omaha, Nebraska and then retired to Naples, Florida in 2002.

Grace was an avid bridge player and loved fashion, traveling, having lunch with friends, watching track-and-field events and the University of Nebraska football team. She enjoyed volunteering through church and other philanthropic organizations. She was a long time member of P.E.O., the United Methodist Church and Panhellenic as a Kappa Delta. In 2002, Grace was named the "High Priestess of Gravy" at the family Thanksgiving dinner, which she richly deserved. She was a kind soul, snappy dresser, had a sympathetic ear and words of encouragement for those who needed it. She had a ready laugh and often surprised unsuspecting dinner guests with an untested recipe.

Grace died Friday, May 5, 2017, in Naples, Florida at the age of 82 years, 11 months and one day.

Grace was preceded in death by her parents and a baby brother, Robert. She is survived by her loving husband, Phil Plessinger of Naples, Florida; two daughters, Karen and her husband Nick Moore of Lafayette, California and Janet and her husband Michael Goyne of Grand Rapids, Michigan; granddaughters, Olivia Moore and Claire Goyne; sister, Jane Welch of Lafayette, California; and many dear cousins and friends.
