Patricia Lynne Graham passed away peacefully at her home in Camas Prairie, Mont., on July 26, 2020. She was 63, born on Nov. 12, 1956, in Los Angeles, Calif., to Joan and Lawrence Dearborn.

Patty was raised in Lomita, Calif., and resided in Long Beach, Calif., until 1992 when she relocated herself and her two daughters to Big Bar, Calif.

She met her husband John Graham and his three kids in 1992. They married Oct. 8, 1994.

She resided in Trinity County until 2015 when she and John moved to Camas Prairie, Mont., where they opened a cafe in 2017 called PJ’s.

Patty worked many jobs when she moved to Trinity County before she became the cafeteria manager at Cox Bar School for 17 years, and then as a dietary aide for Mountain Community Hospital for another five years before retiring to Montana.

Patty enjoyed being with family, whether it was barbecuing at home, camping at the lake, going to the sand dunes in Glamis, Calif., or joy riding on the back roads with dad and us kids. It didn’t really seem to matter as long as we were all doing it together.

Patty is survived by her beloved husband John Graham, her children and their spouses. Patty’s children are Angela Gabler (William Morgan), Brian (Kari Graham), Josh (Crystal Graham), Carlene (Jesse Bramlett) and Tanya (Brian Theademan). She is also survived by her sisters, Kathy Sale and Vivian Woolsey, and her brother Larry Dearborn; many nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and 31 grandchildren.

Her memorial service will be held at Murray Memorial Cemetery in Lone Pine, Mont., at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29, followed by a celebration of life and potluck at Lone Pine Hall, located at:
