(CEDAR CITY, Utah) - Grace was born in Cokedale, CO to Sicilian immigrant parents, Mariano and Rosalia Noto Fragale, on October 20, 1917. On May 27, 2013, at age 95, she passed away with her family at her side.
She left Colorado to find work in California and met a handsome soldier, Joseph Wyatt Walton. They were married on September 14, 1940 and had 3 children, Danny (Judy) Walton, Marian (Larry) Kane and Charlene (Steve) Alzugaray, 8 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
She was a seamstress in the clothing industry in Los Angeles, CA. After retiring, her favorite hobbies were sewing, crocheting, bingo and spending time with her family and friends. She was a heck of a poker player too.
She is preceded in death by her parents, siblings, her husband and her great-grandson.
Her family would like to thank Dr. Gulbrandsen and the staff at Canyon View Clinic, Southern Utah Home Care and Intermountain Homecare, the staff at Emerald Point for their compassionate care and our sincere appreciation to the staff at Valley View Medical Center.
A private family service will be planned at a later date.
