Carolyn Graffam Obituary
Carolyn Estep Graffam, 87, of Pleasant Hills, passed away Tuesday, July 16, 2019. She was the wife of the late Stephen W. Graffam; mother of Stephen C. Graffam, of South Park, Susan Graffam (Lewis) Wright, of Pleasant Hills, and David W. (Kelly) Graffam, of Jefferson Hills; grandmother of Grace Wright (Tony) Smith and David Lewis Wright; great-grandmother of Caleb Anthony Smith; and sister of the late Roberta "Bobby" Estep Waugaman. Carolyn was the May Queen at Baldwin High School and Allegheny College, Phi Beta Kappa at Allegheny College and then went on to teach second grade. Carolyn exemplified a life well lived: she married the love of her life, was the best mother on the planet to her three children, saw everything she wanted to see and did everything she wanted to do. She was one of Pleasant Hills' longest-living residents. She was loved deeply by those she loved.
