Grace Thompson was a significantly involved resident in the Stittsville community. A local historian, author, and philanthropist, she was the first secretary-treasurer of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society, a founding member of both the Stittsville Women’s Institute and the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers, and member of the original steering committee for the formation of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. Grace was one of the first volunteers of the Stittsville Public Library when it opened in 1973 and continued to volunteer well into the 1980s.
