Mary Lou Graham went into the loving arms of God on Tuesday, February 4, 2014. Born in Houghton, Michigan, she grew up gracing the ice with her love of ice skating. Mary Lou was also an accomplished painter. She was married to naval officer Cmdr. Martin Clyde Graham Jr. who passed away in La Jolla in December 1982.|
Mary Lou was a resident of La Jolla for over 50 years serving on the Town Council and Soroptimist Club. She was a renowned antique dealer and appraiser, "Norma Dee Antiques", and to many will always be known as "Nan", aka Mrs. G. She was also a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
She is survived by her children, Norma, Pat, Sharon, Marc, Colleen, Andy, Tim and Kelly; 16 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; six nieces and nephews; and two half siblings.
