She spent the war years in Fort Worth with her father’s family. Many summers were spent in Mason with her mother’s family where she formed a life-long relationship with her cousin Stanley Toepich and his wife Carolyn. After WW2, her father was stationed in Europe where she attended high school in Lentz, Austria. She was influenced by the European art which inspired her pursuit of an art degree from William & Mary College in Virginia.
After graduating in 1958, she married Arthur F. Mace, a recent graduate of West Point. After a long military career, Col. and Mrs. Mace retired to Boerne. She worked for Texas State Representative Frank Corte Jr. for many years before retiring herself to care for her ill husband.
