GRACE'S STORY

The life and spirit of...

Grace Caroline Loncar

It is difficult to summarize the life and spirit of Grace Caroline Loncar. She was truly a star that burned out too quickly. A star not because of any celebrity status, but rather she was a bright light amidst darkness. She used humor, honesty, loyalty and love to bring a unique glow and warmth to the lives of others.

She offered acceptance and friendship to those that felt isolated and misunderstood. Her heart and spirit were tender towards the brokenness of people and this world.

She loved the arts and theatre. As a student at Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Grace played major roles in plays as well as participated as a stage manager, make up artist and costumer. 

She loved her school and often referred to her fellow thespians and artists as “a basket of wonderfuls”. 

She fiercely advocated and lived by the importance of creativity and individual expression. 

She had an unparalleled enthusiasm for the holidays, particularly Christmas and Halloween. She enjoyed celebrating people and occasions. In retrospect, she often combatted the darkness she must have felt by trying to compensate with celebration. Incredibly thoughtful and generous, she really enjoyed giving gifts.

Although she may have struggled to find her own joy, she did all she could to help others experience it to the fullest. That was Grace.

She loved with her whole heart, intensely sharing and experiencing emotions. With the same enthusiasm and passion she showed love, she also experienced pain. 

With the same enthusiasm and passion she showed love, she also experienced pain.  

Grace suffered from the often underestimated and misunderstood disease of depression. From the time she was diagnosed at age 11, until her death, she struggled. We want the world to know and see the light that Grace Loncar brought, however we cannot do so without addressing the context of the darkness. It was with that in mind that The Grace Loncar Foundation was started. 

We are on a mission to openly address the darkness of depression and suicide by bringing forth people, programs and resources that shed light and hope to those that are struggling.

Strawberry Fields Forever

Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone
But it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me

Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

No one I think is in my tree
I mean it must be high or low
That is you can’t, you know, tune in
But it’s all right
That is, I think, it’s not too bad

Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Always, no, sometimes think it’s me
But you know I know when it’s a dream
I think, er, no, I mean, er, yes
But it’s all wrong
That is I think I disagree

Let me take you down
‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about


Strawberry Fields forever
