ALYSIA MICHELLE GRAHAM It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved daughter Alysia Michelle Graham on March 7, 2014. She will be forever loved and remembered by her mother Kristi Graham of Calgary, father David Graham (Tracey Baldwin) of Fergus and her younger brother Austin Graham, also of Calgary. Her aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents, her co-workers and many friends, as well as her beloved dogs Sophie and Brody will miss Alysia very much. Alysia was born on March 11, 1992 in Saskatoon, SK. She was a bright light from the minute she was born to two very young parents, always happy and smiling. Alysia grew into a beautiful, confident, outgoing woman who genuinely cared about people and always took the time to ask how they were doing; she was smart, kind, generous, witty and could be so silly. She loved animals, especially her cat Frankie, photography, travelling, writing, reading, anything Audrey Hepburn, tattoos, music, watching movies and spending time with those closest to her. She was a proud big sister to her brother Austin, always telling anyone who would listen about his music and how he would be famous some day; he was just that good. Her 3 roommates were her very best friends and living with them was a fulfilled dream for her. She was so excited when she found the apartment for the four of them. She made an impact on all who met her over her 21 years and will carry on in our hearts and memories. Alysia had so much potential and life ahead of her, those left behind will always struggle with why she's gone so soon. She will be so missed. The celebration of her life will be held on Friday, March 14, 2014 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Front Street in Toronto at 2:00 p.m. A second celebration will be held in Calgary, AB, in the next few weeks. For all who attend on Friday, please wear a lily of some kind if you are able. They were her favourite flowers. In lieu of flowers or donations to a charity, a scholarship will be set up in Alysia's name. For further details or to send condolences, please contact Kristi Graham at

Kristi - so sorry to hear about your loss. While I only met Alysia a few times, I could very much tell that she was full of life and creativity. I also know how important she was to you. I can only imagine what great sorrow you must be feeling now. Rachel and I are thinking of you and your family during this time of sadness and hope that memories of Alysia bring you comfort and joy forever more.

Kristi, Austin, David and family - I remember the year she was born, wondering how on earth you both could manage to raise this little one when you both were so young yourselves. Through it all you showed us it can be done. And done well. I know you and David are proud of who Alysia became (and Austin too) - I always held you both in high regard. I send my thoughts as you go through this difficult year ahead full of many more firsts... Ne Oublie

I remember meeting Alysia at my daughter Frans wedding. Alysia got up and gave a true heartfelt speech in which she said that Fran and John her new husband would forever be a brother and sister to Alysia and her brother.
They invited Fran into their own home when
Fran needed help the most. I will remember
the sweet sweet girl and I will cherish what she said. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the 3 young souls that were taken much to soon. Heaven truly has 3 more angels. Frans momma Colleen
