Christine K. Graham, 64


Christine K. Graham, 64, Batesville, died Friday, July 11, 2014, at Community North Hospital, Indianapolis. 

Born June 27, 1950, in Canton, Ohio, she was the daughter of Margaret (King) and Robert Graham. She worked at the Sisters of St. Francis Convent, Oldenburg, as their wellness coordinator. 

Chris loved being with people. Her daughters laughed about Mom having a busier social life than them and belonging to several dinner and bunko clubs. Her nurturing spirit came naturally as she enjoyed caring for others, and her position at the convent suited her well. A dog lover, she had several German shepherds over the years, with Cajun being her most recent. According to her daughters, it was quite normal for Chris to break into dance when she heard music. She was partial to books by Nora Roberts, and it was probably a safe bet that when you walked into her house Fox News was on the television. Chris enjoyed Jameson Irish Whiskey, fishing and spending time by the water.

She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law Kate and Kenne Crocker, Indianapolis, and Allie and Kyle Benham, Los Angeles; brother Steve Graham and mother and father-in-law Emilie and Alex Korosi, Canton, Ohio. 

She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Robert “Bob” Graham.

The family will receive friends at the Community Church of Batesville, located at the corner of Main and George streets, from 4-5 p.m. Friday, July 18. A memorial service officiated by the Rev. John Porter will follow at 5 p.m. Following services, a reception will be held at the Hillcrest Country Club. On Saturday, July 19, the family will celebrate Chris at one of her favorite annual events, Freudenfest, in Oldenburg. Family and friends are welcome to join in the celebration of her life. 

The family requests memorials to the Ripley County Humane Society. 

Weigel Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
