    Joan was a very special lady. My deepest sympathy to her family. Sharon Attebery

    I met Joan through line dancing at the Eppson Center. She always danced in the front of the room and always knew the steps. We could easily follow her and dance along. I will always associate the song "Fishing in the Dark" with Joan. How she blushed when she realized the lyrics were not referring to a meal. She is missed.

    Mrs Graham was the mother we all needed. Her daughter Billie and I have been friends for years and during that time, Mrs Graham always was there to encourage and comfort us all when we needed it most. This old world has lost one of the very best but God has called home one of His chosen angels. She will be missed greatly but her friends and family are rejoicing to have her "at home" with them. Love to you all

    I am sorry to hear about Joan. She was a very nice person and also a patient that made me smile when I saw her on my schedule. May God Bless. I am sure she will be missed by everyone who had the good fortune to meet her.

  • Susie Holland

    Joan was the kindest and most thoughtful person. She never missed a birthday or anniversary card for me. She loved everyone she knew, and gave selfless service to so many. She is united with her loving husband, Leroy, whom she loved dearly.

    We did not get to meet Mrs. Graham, however we purchased her home in Prairies Edge and wanted to send our condolences. We had hoped to meet her but sorrowfully did not get to. Please accept our deepest condolences. George & Jan Parker
