I enjoyed the times Mrs.Graham and I spent together. SHE never made me feel like and employee. We shopped, gardened, cooked, sewed, planned parties, and even made sure we were there when there horse won at the races. Mr. Graham also told me it was my job to make sure we stayed in budget ,which was not always easy.

Ronny, Linda and Danny, I'm sorry to learn of your mom's passing. I knew her primarily through her involvement with Trinity UMC and in particular her participation in the choir. Her involvement in and support of good local government, the Ruston community, and the beautification of Ruston was much appreciated by not only me but so many others in the community. Her family and community will miss her. John Sachs

Through the past fifty years I have taught hundreds of women exercise. Many have become friends that I will cherish forever, but one lady stands out from all the rest. It was my privilege to know and work with Ida Grey Graham. When I was with Ida Grey, I was transported back to a time when being kind and generous, polite and gracious, attentive and loving were the qualities of being a lady. I have always thought of Ida Grey as the standard by which we should all live our lives. I am so grateful and blessed to have known such a lovely lady. Love to all her family that she leaves behind.

Linda and Family, Dawn and I were sad to hear about Ida Grey. She was a very kind and warm person of boundless enthusiasm. It was such a pleasure for me to have her in numerous drawing and painting classes, frequently accompanied by you, Linda; and the combination of the two of you in the same class was a fun experience to say the least! We also valued her friendship and generosity through the years beyond the classroom. We are filled with warm memories of this dear sweet lady. Ed Pinkston

Ms. Linda and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I first met Ms. Ida at a yoga class. We went to the same class for about 10 years. We even had class for a few months at Ms. Ida's house, in the attic (Ms. Ida's painting studio). She was a fun lady to be around. She could do all those yoga moves much easier than me. She was at least 30 years older that me. She will be missed by many.
