A life-long resident of the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Lavona Christina ("Chrissie") Graham was born January 15, 1951, to James Rayburn Graham and Nell ("Tom") London. She passed away on Friday, August 11, 2017, after a short battle with cardiopulmonary problems at Methodist Charlton Medical Center in Dallas.

After graduating from Sunset High School, she worked for many years for Southland Corporation and then Medical Edge Healthcare Group in their medical billing section.

Chrissie loved reading, watching movies and eating good food although her great love was her cats--many cats. Having a conversation with Chrissie was always much fun; she was so witty! And she had a robust laugh, just bursting with humor.

She is survived by an aunt, LaVona Slack of Estes Park, CO, an uncle, Dillard Graham of Bonham, TX, a nephew, James Madison Graham, and many cousins.

She was preceded in death by both of her parents and her two brothers, James Rayburn, Jr., and Joe, as well as her beloved grandparents, Madison B Graham and Sarah Adeline [McConnell].

Many thanks to her good friends, Larry and Suzanne Tuttle, who helped her in every aspect of her life.

She will be cremated and a graveside ceremony will be held at a later date.
