Gracie (Grace) Mae Lusk Howerton


PRINCETON - Grace Howerton, 88, of Princeton passed away peacefully Friday, May 10, 2019 in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Grace had a quick sense of humor and a biting wit. She was an avid gardener and had a miraculous green thumb. She was dedicated to her family and was strengthened by warm memories of her lifelong friends and her home in Princeton.
In her final months she was very blessed to be surrounded by the loving caregivers at Reflections Assisted Living in Myrtle Beach.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her devoted husband of 56 years, Harold V. Howerton; a son Larry Vernon Howerton; her siblings: Roy Lusk; Tollison Lusk, Jr.; Carrie McKinney & Pansie Snyder.
