Grace Anton


Grace L. Anton passed away at Lasata Care Center in Cedarburg on Oct. 26, 2019. She was 91 years old.  

Grace was born on June 2, 1928, in Milwaukee, to Milton and Vernetta (nee Gebler) Alexander.

Grace and Ray were the owners and operators of Hillside Auto in Port Washington beginning in 1959, later retiring in 1986 after selling the business.

Ray and Grace bought a house in Arkansas that they spent time re-building around their daily golf game. They moved back to Wisconsin full time in 2005.  

Grace was a social woman and lived for games. She enjoyed everything from bowling and sheepshead to golfing.  

Grace is survived by her son Kim (Sharon) Anton; two granddaughters, Lisa (Tony) Nguyen and Michelle (Grant) Chenok; one great-granddaughter soon to arrive; and her sister Nancy Prout.
