She graduated from Brandon High School with the class of 1937 and then attended the Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls, IA. Upon earning her teaching certificate, she taught in a one room school house in rural Buchanan County. On June 24, 1943, she was united in marriage to Leland C. Schutte at Zion Lutheran Church – Jubilee. She continued teaching after her marriage, and in 1950 they purchased their farm on Daniel Avenue, where Grace continued to live until 2021.
