Born in Spokane, Washington to Oscar and Helen Grace Merager. Grace graduated from Eastern Washington with a teaching degree. She married Eugene Eggert prior to his deployment to China and India for WWII. They had one daughter, H. Jeanne Beckman (Earl) of College Station, TX. She is also survived by three granddaughters: Laura Hedge (Chris), Michelle Kocurek (Mike), and Shea Davis (Lance) and six great-grandchildren.
Grace nurtured elementary school children in the San Francisco Bay area as both a teacher and a counselor. After marrying Ed Muehlhausen, PhD, they retired and moved to Tucson, AZ until Ed’s passing. Grace relocated to College Station nine years ago to be near family. A dedicated traveler, she even went to Europe on her own once! She was a regular at the Monterrey Jazz Festival during her CA tenure. As the original Granola Girl, she was ahead of her time in nutrition and fitness, swimming well into her 80’s. But the family would vote that her greatest talent and legacy are the amazing foot massages she shared with love and laughter.
The family would like to thank Dr. Denise Turner, the staff at the Waterford, and her various caregivers at Scott & White Hospital, Magnified Nursing and Rehab, and Hospice Brazos Valley, for their tender care on her last journey.
She passed peacefully with her family by her bedside. In her memory, please pay someone a compliment every day she always did!!!
