Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at Barrett Funeral Home, with the Rev. Patrick Ballington, lead pastor of The Bridge Church, officiating.
She was born Dec. 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor Day) to the late Grant Clinton Greene and Geraldine Elizabeth Greene.
Barbra Graham was an amazing lady with a brilliantly creative mind who was adored by her family and friends. In addition to serving 32 years as a school teacher and school counselor, Mrs. Graham was a member of The Bridge Church in Cleveland and served as the church counselor for several years. She held two master’s degrees, was a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Board Certified Counselor and a Certified Mediator, was a talented portrait painter and spent her life encouraging others. Barbra Graham was the one you went to when you needed wise advice and direction or just needed to be reminded how wonderful you are. She saw people’s hearts before their faces – even complete strangers. People, the Almighty, and love mattered most in her life.
Her legacy of generosity, love and kindness live on through her survivors, who include family in Cleveland: Ron Graham (husband), Tracy, John and Christie Taylor (daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter), and family in Morrisville, N.C.: Ronni, Christiana and Palmer Hall (daughter, granddaughter and grandson).
