Celebrating the Life of Mary L. Graham

Mary Louise Graham was born August 29, 1929 to W. R. Grundy Sr. and LaVania Edwards. She was the third of eleven children born to this union. At an early age, Mary was baptized and accepted Christ into her life. She attended many churches throughout her years. But made a home at House of Deliverance Pentecost Church of Jesus Christ. Mary had two great loves in her life, that was cooking and taking care of children. Mary would prepare big elaborate meals every Christmas for her extended family so that they could stay connected and fellowship. She was also an employee of the American Restaurant for 20 years with a dish famously called “Ms. Mary’s Greens.” The latter part of May’s life was spent doing her second love, which was taking care of children. Mary worked at many childcare centers in the Spencer, Midwest City area and loved every minute of it. She is preceded in death by her husband LeAnder Graham, Oklahoma City; father and mother W.
