Michelle Louise Graham, 38 years old, quietly fell asleep in death at her home in Cabool, Missouri, on Monday, November 5, 2018.
Michelle was born in Houston, Missouri. She lived in Beloit, Kansas, until the fall of 1990, when she and her family moved to Cabool.
She is survived by her parents, Charles and Tammy Graham of Cabool; a sister, Brandy Swartz and husband Mike of Cabool; a brother, Vaughn Graham of Aurora, Missouri; one niece, Ella Swartz, and one nephew, Aden Swartz, of Cabool; her maternal grandmother, Joan Moon of Cabool; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Michelle suffered a lifelong mental/physical challenge from infancy but she never let it stop her from enjoying life and her family’s love, which she was shown 24/7 while living at home.
Michelle enjoyed life and loved being around family and friends. She had a love for music whether it was making her own, on the piano, or listening to CDs. It was her enjoyment which also brought calm to her life especially when her mom or sister would sing to her such as the Beatles song “Michelle” in which she also was lovingly called “Michelle La Belle.”
She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Wilford and Pauline Graham of Cabool, and her maternal grandfather, Harvey Moon of Licking, Missouri.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 18, 2018, at 2:00 o’clock in the afternoon at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, located at 1340 Ozark Street, Cabool.
