Evelyn Frances Graham

Evelyn Frances Graham entered her eternal rest on the 5th day of January in 2023.

She was born on the 10th day of January in 1939 to Lizzie Lee Young and Frank Mason Graham.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Lizzie Lee Young and Frank Mason Graham.

She is survived by her brother, Mark (Merry) Myers; sister Dawnne Walker; and multiple nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors, and friends.

Evelyn was a lifelong resident of the Shady Grove Community where she attended Shady Grove School and provided caretaking services to many families at the Shady Grove Church. Evelyn was kind and intelligent with a passion for reading; she was well studied on a wide range of religious, political, and pop culture topics. She loved nature; raising large goldfish and ensuring the winter birds who visited her regularly were well nourished. Self-reliant and independent – she taught herself to play guitar, did her own household and automobile repairs.
