The family moved to Browning, Missouri, where Grace attended a one room school named Clem Springs. That is where she met a classmate Bill Bohannon. They grew up as friends for many years and finally became man and wife. Grace graduated high school and afterwards they moved to the St. Joseph area. In 1936 they moved to their farm in Dearborn, Missouri. They worked the farm together until Bill passed away on September 28, 1996.
