Of Arlington Heights

Grace L. Fairlie, age 85, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, in Burnsville, MN, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.

She was a 1951 graduate of Harrison High School and a 1955 graduate of the University of Illinois with a degree in Psychology. Grace married John (Jack) Fairlie in 1956 and again in 1983 after a 10-year divorce. She raised two sons and worked a variety of bookkeeping jobs, eventually retiring as an accountant. Grace was a funny, intelligent person that could see the humor in most situations and cared deeply about social justice.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John, and survived by her son Douglas (Linda) Fairleigh and Thomas (Stephanie) Fairlie; grandchildren, Lauren, Gwendolyn, Audrey, and Ethan; siblings, the late Joseph (Patricia) Komosa and the late Norma and Edward Ryndak; and many nieces and nephews.
