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
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
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.
