Grace Wolf Robertson - Southport

Grace Wolf Robertson - SouthportGrace Wolf Robertson, age 97, who resided at Dosher Nursing Center, went Home to be with her Lord on Tuesday, April 30, 2013.

Grace was born in Buffalo, New York on September 24, 1915 to Albert and Elizabeth Wolf. She married William Donald Robertson in 1941 and they resided in the Buffalo area most of their sixty-four years of married life. She was a high school guidance counselor assistant most of her working career. First and foremost though, she was a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Grace resided at Orchard Heights Assisted Living in Orchard Park, New York and then at West Seneca Nursing Home in West Seneca, New York before moving to Southport, North Carolina. She arrived at Dosher Nursing Center to live near her daughter and son-in-law and embraced all that Southport had to offer. She loved living with her friends at Dosher Nursing Center for four years. The friends and staff at Dosher, along with many Southport friends, became Miss Grace’s North Carolina treasured family. She was a member of Maryvale Drive Presbyterian Church, Cheektowaga, New York and was adopted by Southport Presbyterian Church while in Southport.

Grace is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Diane and Larry Wyte; one sister Elva Wolf Pelloth; four grandchildren, Kristen Wyte Carr of Atlanta, Georgia, Lawrence Robert Wyte and wife Robin of Oakton, Virginia, Matthew Robertson of Cheektowaga, New York, and Eric Robertson and wife Mary of Denver, Colorado. Grace was fortunate to have loved her seven great grandchildren, William Cater Carr, Mary Grace Carr, Graham Robert Wyte, Lily Boxley Wyte, Caitlyn Robertson, Tyler Robertson and Lilly Robertson. She was preceded in death by her husband William, son William Jr., daughter-in-law Lindsay, and grandson-in-law Robert Myrick Carr.

There was not a person she met who was not a friend, and not an activity she did not embrace in as such was her glorious life. She loved all and in joy was loved by them.

A celebration of her life will take place this summer in Buffalo where she will be interred with her husband, William.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Dosher Nursing center, Attn. Activities Fund, 924 North Howe Street, Southport, North Carolina 28461.
