Betty J. Graves Obituary
Graves, Betty J.
1928 - 2018
Betty Jean Graves, age 89, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 8 in the loving company of family at her home. She was born on December 10, 1928 in Columbus, Ohio to Mark and Alice (Mundy) Bauchmire. Her life was spent in devotion to her family including her husband of 73 years, three children, four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. She spent many years exploring the U.S. with her husband in their motor home and, in her later years, found a respite from the cold Ohio winters in her Florida home. She was known for her love of cooking, kindness to animals, and her fondness for the music of "young" Elvis. She is preceded in death by her parents, son John Graves, Jr., brother Jack Bauchmire and sisters-in-law Samygene Bauchmire and June Graves. She is survived by her husband, John; children, Larry (Patty) Graves and Deborah (Tim) Brickner; grandchildren, Amanda Weed (Joseph Francis), Megan (Tom) Kushner, Eric (Lizzie) Weed, and Johnna (Brad) Rogers; and great-grandchildren, Sofia and Beau Kushner, Katia Weed, and Arden Rogers; brother-in-law, Delbert Graves; and sister-in-law, Patty (Dick) Hoke; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
