I am not sure if any of her royal cousins attended the service. I did not look for an article about the actual memorial, just for an obituary. I almost did not want to post the article. She is a very compelling person. I hope people won't stop talking about her. Sweetwater Farm has a website if you want to see her home.

Tigerlilly . . . do you have a link to the video of Grace Levine that you mentioned earlier in this thread? If so, please share! We would all like to see pictures of her.

I found an article from the online New York Times entitled "Evening Hours: Why have a Party? To open a film or to aid artists" dated May 18, 2006, in which Grace Levine-Packer is quoted at an award ceremony this year. I'm sorry I don't know how to post a link. I've copied the link down and transcribed it, but I found it through a google search for "Grace Levine Packer".
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...50C0A96F948260
Anyway I hope it works for you all.
Here is a transcription of the quote: "The Princess Grace Foundation gives an award, endowed by the Junior Division, to a young performing artist. 'Last year's award recipient was Dennis Rees, a theater student at Carnegie-Mellon University, who had run out of money and was living in the locker room,' said Grace Levine-Packer, a niece of the late princess."

If you check the article, you'll see that it's from the archives and was originally published on March 26, 1989. The other date was yesterday as being the current date of the website. Hope that helps. :)

I think she was married at some point, even though nothing was mentioned in the obituary. I saw an article from the 80's/90's about Grace LeVine Parker appearing on behalf of the Princess Grace Foundation when the Princess' girlhood library honored her with a stamp or something. I really did not read it very carefully. I tried to find a wedding announcement for her but could only find one for her brother Christopher who is a stockbroker in Philadelphia.

Hi Everyone. I am a new member here but I have been a visitor to this sight for a couple of months now. I was going to post to let you know that Grace passed away from cancer but the Inquirer obit was posted first. I believe it was either ovarian or breast cancer. Such a shame. I am glad to see Sweetwater Farm is still in the family. I assumed it had been sold. My sister lives about a mile away from it and it is a beautiful property. In fact if you google Sweetwater Farm you can view pictures of the place inside and out.

I thought she had a husband, but since the obit from the Inky didn't list one, I have to wonder. I think Grace kept a pretty low profile. I remember reading about her buying the B&B from Linda Kaat. Linda was the former wife of onetime Phillies pitcher Jim Kaat. I don't remember what local paper I read the article in, but that is where I got the impression she was married. Perhaps she got a divorce after she bought the place. Sorry I can't enlighten any further. I will try to dig around for more but it has been a few years.

I was just talking to my sister that lives near the B&B. She recalled that there was a male business partner when she bought into the business. It was so long ago that she can't recall his name. He wasn't her husband & in fact she doesn't recall ever hearing of a husband. She seems to recall him being involved with horses (such as show jumping or polo not racing)but she isn't sure. This may be the man I am remembering from the article.

Thanks for the additional research. I apologize for not checking the info further myself. Seems Dennis Rees is a graduate now and pursuing his craft...he's had a small role in Kate and Leopold and a role in the TV series Law and Order...not a starving student living in the locker room, for sure. It seems the Princess Grace Foundation does great things for aspiring actors.
