    She was preceded in death by her husband, Reese Locklear, her parents Noah and Mary Ellen Dial, a sister Deborah O. Sampson, two brothers Adolph Dial and  Herman Dial.

    Grace leaves to cherish her memories two daughters, Melba Locklear Oxendine (Ronnie) and Lisa Carol Locklear (Brian); one niece Mary Dial Caple (Frank) who called her “mama Grace”;  one sister Rosa B. Woods (James); four step grandchildren Ronald Jacobs, Sierra Locklear, Keith Locklear (Stormie),  Brittnay L. Dill (Jonathan) and one step great grandchild (Bayleigh).

She was a wonderful teacher, one who treated all students as if you were her very own. She will always be remembered as one who has had an impact in my life and helped model what it is to be a teacher! Loving, encouraging, respectful kind and professional in all that you do. She was a great role model for so many. Prayers for her daughters and family.
