Flashback Friday: Grace Zoeller

This week’s FF case is Grace Loretta Zoeller, who disappeared from Phoenix sometime in August 1960 — not sure when. In fact I’m not even 100% sure it was August; NamUs says she went missing “around August.” Sigh.

There are two photos, one of which seems to be a wedding picture. And a notation that Grace left behind nine children — NINE! At 29 years old!

Given that they have the approximate address where Grace was last seen, I don’t know why they’re unsure as to the date.  Beyond that I’ve got doodly squat.

If she’s still alive Grace would be nearly ninety years old now. I don’t have enough information to speculate whether she met with foul play, or merely walked away.

      Thank you. It turns out one of Grace’s daughters has set up a Facebook page for her as well, though it doesn’t say anything I don’t already know. It does have a pic of all the kids on there and a picture of her husband.

    Grace Loretta Zoeller, nee Hansen, born in Windom, Minnesota in Cottonwood County, on April 4, 1932, see certificate number 1932-06076. She married Harold T. Zoeller on August 29, 1948, when she was 16. He was 4 years older than Grace.

    Also two places have her as disappearing in October 1961, versus other missing person’s sites which shows August 1960.
