Grace Lagos

Grace Lagos was born in a small town outside Brisbane, Australia. She was three years of age when her parents bought a farm, where she grew up. Life on a farm can be tough and lonely, but she loved and read books, which was an escape for her into another world. At age twenty, she moved back to Brisbane, where she met and married her husband. She has two children and grandchildren. When most women of that era worked in the clothing trade when she came to Brisbane, she got a job in the public service.
