The family of Barbara Loe Graham announce with sorrow her passing on February 25th, 2014. Barbara was born in Shreveport, LA. She is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Julian Graham Jr., her sister Janet Bailey (Panama City, FL.), her four children, Julian Graham III (Tampa, FL.), Sarah DesRoches (Metaire, LA), Wesley Martin (Richmond, VA) and Susannah Bardo (Richmond, VA) and also her nine grandchildren, Ashley Graham 23, John Graham 20, Jane Marson 4, Graham DesRoches 11, Jack DesRoches 9, Brandon Bardo 12, Joshua Bardo 10, Thomas Bardo 4, and Graham Martin 10. Barbara most recently lived in Covington, LA., where she was a member of Christ Episcopal Church, and on the altar guild. Barbara's life was filled with her efforts to rescue and protect abused and abandoned animals. She and Julian formed All God's Creatures, a foundation that they managed and funded for 18 years. Barbara did extensive work with PETA SPCA, and local shelters wherever she lived. Barbara and Julian moved their foundation to Nova Scotia where they expanded their operations to include all animals in need. An example of her love and commitment for animals, she once flew from Nova Scotia to Shreveport, LA., to rescue and adopt "Faith", a 3 legged dog. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting a donation to any animal organization. A memorial service will be held Sunday March 2, 2014 at 2 pm at Christ Episcopal in Covington, LA. Arrangements by Bagnell & Son Funeral Home of Covington, LA.
