Funeral services were held Friday, Dec. 7 at First Baptist Church in Cainsville, Mo., under the direction of Bethany Memorial Chapel of Bethany. Burial was in Zoar Cemetery near Cainsville.
Mrs. Graham, daughter of Harley and Cora (Stanley) Maple, was born near Brimson in Harrison County, Mo., on Oct. 15, 1917.

They actively participated in their church and community, and were engaged in farming until Mr. Graham's death on Jan. 27, 1990. They enjoyed winters in Texas for 15 years, but her family was her greatest joy.
