SUSAN GRAHAM1Susan Eileen (Manz) Graham passed away in Olympia, Washington May 9, 2014 following a brief illness.  She was born to Vernon and Beverly Manz July 7,1953 in Ely, Nevada.  She was 60 years old.

Susan is survived by Terry, her husband of 42 years, children Ryan and Keri (Nate) and grandsons Liam and Patrick. She is also survived by brothers; Fred (Carol), Dave (Tanya) and sister, Frances (Ray) and brother and sister-in-law, Denis and Margaret Graham. Susan is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and coworkers and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Richard.

Susan was employed at St. Martin’s University as a librarian at O’Gradys Library. She loved gathering family information and called working on her genealogy her favorite ‘other’ job. She had a beautiful knack of weaving family information into stories and was most proud of Mom’s Story a book she wrote incorporating these touching stories. Although she called Olympia her home, Nevada remained the place that brought her peace as she remained a true Nevadan at heart.

A celebration of Life is being planned for a later date with interment in Eureka Nevada.

Donations may be made in Susan’s name to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
