Grace R. Brady, 78, of Haddonfield died Tuesday.
She was born and raised in East Camden and spent most of her life in Haddonfield, which she loved and enjoyed. She was the daughter of Margaret (Nellie) and John Barbagallo. Grace's siblings were John, Connie (Norman) and Laura (Larry). She shared many good times with her sisters - all dance crazy and fun.
Grace married Richard F. Brady. Her claim to fame was being a mother of eight—the Brady Bunch: Ken, Nancy, Patrick, Richard, Barbara, Grace, Patti and Debi. Wow. A kind, thoughtful, committed mother, she was the emotional thread that held the family together. Grace was a loving grandmother and an aunt to many special nieces and nephews. Russell was her caring son-in-law.
Grace was a friend and coworker and found a home at Camden County Library with a few dear friends, "the ladies."
Most of all, Grace was a good, gentle, caring soul, reflective, easy to get along with, fun, ever the peacemaker and oh so dear.
Grace's family will receive friends on Monday from 10 to 11:45 a.m. at Kain-Murphy Funeral Services, 15 West End Ave., Haddonfield; where the family invites all to participate in her reminiscence service at noon. Interment will follow at Haddonfield Baptist Cemetery.
