Graham, Violet Victoria

Click to see full size photoViolet Victoria Gross Graham, affectionately known as "Vi-Tee" was born on June 24, 1925 to the late James O. Gross and Martha R. Coates-Gross of Lusby, Maryland. Violet lost a courageous battle with cancer and slipped peacefully into eternal rest on June 1, 2012 at the age of eighty-six.

Violet was a graduate of Brooks High School in Calvert County, Maryland. During her education, she cherished her teacher the late Miss Alice Stamper. Shortly after graduation, she began her employment at Catholic University as a cook and a child care provider. She then moved to New York where she was a family caregiver. Violet worked as a head cook at Bowen's Inn Restaurant in Solomons, Maryland, Amber's Restaurant in Lusby, MD and was an active Senior Companion for over 21 years.

Violet was like a mother to everyone she met. Her family included many additional children who were not related by birth. She welcomed them into her home with loving open arms. Vi-Tee had a smile that would warm your heart and brighten your day. She extended unconditional love to all who knew her, always ready and willing to help in whatever way she could.

We all recall "Vi-Tee" sitting at her dining table playing a hand of Spades or Hi Lo Jack. She always kept a piece of paper, pen and a deck of cards nearby. Among her other hobbies were cooking and baking for her family and friends. Her famous Apple Butter, Homemade Root beer and Biscuits will be in our memories forever. She took pleasure in family gatherings especially sitting out on the porch enjoying the sunshine. In a spur of a moment, she would break out into a dance. To most, she appeared as an angel in disguise. Violet had a natural nurturing soul.

On October 26, 1946, she united in marriage to the late Joseph Lester Graham.

She leaves to cherish precious memories; seven children, William Orie (Burnadette) Gross, Marvin (Maude) Graham, James (Maxine) Graham, Gary (Marshann) Graham, Wendy (Victor) Hawkins, Trudy (Terry) Johnson, and Dean (Shirley) Graham; three sisters-in-law, Grace Graham, Elizabeth Graham and Attrew Gross; three brothers-in-law, Asia Broome, Chester Louers and Johnny Burnett; fifteen grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren, one great great grandchild, four god sisters, Elise, Alberta, Celeste Weems and Constance Johnson; three god brothers Samuel, Stewart and Charles Weems, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
