Gerald Theodore “Ted” Graham Sr.

Quincy native, Gerald “Ted” Graham passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017, at Plumas District Hospital in Quincy. He was born June 17, 1945.

Ted was received into the loving arms of his parents Charles and Wilma “Granny” Graham, along with two of his siblings Dan and Catherine.

Ted was an amazing man who touched the hearts of everyone he knew. Whether you needed a rock to lean on or a shoulder to cry on our “Teddy Bear” would always be there if he could. He lived a life filled with integrity, punctuality, laughter and love.

Ted is survived by his wife, Ronni, of nearly 40 years; youngest son Chris Graham, daughter-in-law Angelique and granddaughter McKenzie; eldest son Gerry Graham, daughter-in-law Martee, grandchildren Heather, Austyn, Leah, Erynne; great- granddaughter Riley; and his siblings Cliff, Dorothy, Margret and Janet and their families.

Ted will be remembered by his family and friends for the rest of our lives.

Pops, we love and miss you more than words could ever express. May your soul rest in peace, till we meet again.

Arrangements entrusted to Manni Funeral Home of Portola.

Stephanie Jill McGrath

Stephanie Jill McGrath, 50, of Greenville, passed away Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017.

Stephanie is survived by her loving boyfriend, Ira Wallace; her children, James Kesterson, Jessica Kesterson, Janelle Kesterson Smith (Corey), and Clyde Joseph (“CJ”) Kesterson (Catie); by her grandchildren, Dailen, Elizabeth, Teyla, Hunter, Lexie, Piper, Tully and Finnley; and by her siblings Dan and Natalie.

Stephanie lived life to its fullest, always in the “now.” People have always been drawn to her, for her wit, personality and smile. She loved her family dearly (this also includes her dogs), loved reading, snowmobiling with Ira, zippy driving in her Mini Cooper, and was always up for making new friends. She regained her art inspiration and was making and selling inspirational rustic wood signs.

We are blessed to have known this unique, loving, generous woman. She will be greatly missed in so many ways by so many people. This obituary can also be seen at HYPERLINK “http://www.waltonsfuneralhomes.com”waltonsfuneralhomes.com.

In Stephanie’s honor, the family will be hosting a memorial/gathering in mid-March (17, 18 or 19) at a location to be determined. The details will be posted soon on Stephanie’s Facebook page.
