Olive Graham

   Graveside services for Olive I. Graham will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, July 10, 1996, at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.  Reverend Gail Graves will officiate, under the direction of Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.  Family and friends are asked to meet at the cemetery.
    Olive I. Graham was born July 25, 1912, to William and Florence Parson in St. Joseph, Missouri, and was raised and schooled in Missouri.  She married George E. Graham in Kansas on June 2, 1934.  They farmed in Missouri until 1936, then moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, until 1939.  After leaving Oklahoma, they followed the harvest until 1943 when they moved to Idaho with their only child, Darvin.  The couple went into farming on their own in 1952 in Wilder.  In 1955, they bought and ran the Riverview Furniture Store in Homedale until Mr. Graham's death in 1966.  In 1969, Mrs. Graham began working for the J.R. Simplot Company, where she worked until her retirement.
    Mrs. Graham was preceded in death by her husband, George, in 1966 and their son, Darvin, in 1970.  
    She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Nathale Moore of Caldwell; four grandchildren, Shannon B. Weston of Nampa, Marian K. Graham of Caldwell, Brent D. Graham of Caldwell, and Cynthia L. Haylett of Caldwell; and six great-grandchildren, Candyce and John Weston, Heidi and Jordyn Graham, Dannielle Schelhorn and Meranda Haylett.
    It is for the love she shared with her family that she was treasured and will always be remembered.  Her laughter and love of fun made her the perfect grandma.  There were no rules when you were at grandma's house, no games too noisy, no bedtimes, no rules about what or when you ate, just fun and unconditional love.
    The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Caldwell Care Center for their love and devotion to Olive during the last years of her life.
