Carolyn Nadine Graham Obituary
Carolyn Nadine Graham November 26, 1945 - July 18, 2012 Carolyn Nadine Graham was born in New Mexico, she grew up in Lamont and went to Arvin High School, in California, she was 66 years old and she lived a full life on this earth until Jesus came and took her to be with Him. She passed away peacefully with lot's of family at her side. She loved life to the fullest. She loved to shop, she loved to cook and entertain always celebrating all the holidays at her house, and she loved to decorate. Most of all she loved her family. She had such a giving heart and was so generous, always bought presents for everybody, even people she didn't know. Carolyn or as family called her Nadine was very special to all her family and friends as well. She worked for approximately 10 years in the banking industry and another 30 years as a caregiver for the elderly. We have so many fond memories with her. Beach trips with the Trailblazers, camping in RV's, riding 3 wheelers in the sand dunes and climbing mountains. She made many trips back East to visit family that she loved and missed so much. She was spiritual woman and had a relationship with our Lord and Savior. Carolyn placed her God-given faith in Jesus. She is survived by her loving husband Billy Graham who courageously stood by her side and cared for her for 46 years; her daughter Melody (Childs) Kerker and son-in-law Darren Kerker; grandchildren, Joshua Kerker and Brittany Kerker; sisters, Imogene Winklepleck, Ivalene Adams, Korene Salada and her little brother Billy Patterson, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law Jerry and Sandra Graham; step-daughter Casandra Johnson and grandchildren Micah and Huggy Johnson and great-grandson's. She was preceded in death by her father Willie Patterson, mother Agnes Patterson, brother Damon Patterson, sisters, Kay Pierce, Shirley Clifton, Maxine Palacios, Earlene Vescovi, and her step-son Jerry Michael Graham. The family would like to give a special thank-you to Dr. Jennifer Black, Dr. Peterson, the ER nurses Grace and Maria Anna and all the SJCH staff.
