West Brookfield - Grace L. Boos, 16, of West Brookfield, died on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at her home.
She leaves her parents, James D. and Elissa (Lawrence) Boos and her sister, Juliette Boos all of West Brookfield, her maternal grandmother, Ann Merriam and her husband Edward of Warren, her maternal grandfather David Lawrence of North Brookfield, her paternal grandparents Richard and Charlotte Boos of West Brookfield.

Grace was predeceased by her brother Tyler Kubert in 2018. She was born in Southbridge.
Grace was a Sophomore at Pathfinder Vocational Technical School and was enrolled in their culinary program. She loved baking and would surprise her family with creative desserts. She also had a strong love for animals, spending her time volunteering at Second Chance Animal Shelter. If it was up to her all those animals would have been brought home. Grace enjoyed shopping, kayaking, and going to Red Sox games. She liked the views from the top of the mountains but didn't enjoy the actual climb. Grace was looking forward to getting her license so she could visit her favorite ice cream shops. She was very artistic and used her creativity and imagination to paint on canvas and rocks.
Grace will forever be missed by her family and friends.
