Graceful Lives: Family Origins, Life Story, and Descendents of William and Grace Lassey

Front Cover

Graceful Lives summarizes the family history and descendents of William and Grace Lassey--parents of the authors. Th ey were both born and raised in western North Dakota, where their parents homesteaded in the early 20th Century. Th eir younger married years were a major challenge, as they tried to make a living on a farm in the depths of the Great Depression, while raising their children. Th ey overcame great odds to eventually prosper, while contributing mightily to their family, community, state, and nation. Th eir 58 descendents (as of 2011) are justly proud, and thankful for the huge contributions they made during their lifetimes.
