  • Notes 
    • Her son Dick Ott reported:
      «tab»"Grace was the youngest daughter of Harry and Elsie (Sullivan) Frock, born May 15, 1916 in Baltimore City, Md. They initially rented in the Pikesville area and then rented across the street from her mother around 1938. Times were tough as the depression was ending and Grace supplemented Dick's income from the mill by running a snowball stand. Dick took a job with an awning and canvas Company as a mechanic where he worked until his retirement around 1970. Grace worked for the Montgomery Ward's Company as a clerk for a number of years and around 1953, she went to work for the Maryland Casualty Insurance Company as a clerk until her retirement around 1973....
      «tab»"Grace was really the head of the family and was very strong willed and intelligent. She took care of the finances and was very frugal; however she saw that they had everything that they wanted such as having one of the first televisions on the street.... Shortly after Dick Jr.'s graduation in 1961, Grace was hospitalized and diagnosed as a diabetic and would take insulin for the rest of her life....
      «tab»"Grace died on 8/29/1980 at age 64 from an infection resulting from her diabetic condition. She is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Baltimore." «u»www.genemapping.cn/OttFamText.html«/u» (accessed Jan 2008).
