Mary Jane Graves
With the passing of time, our loved one’s move on to knowing they will be able to join their first amazing love, ready with hand out to be able to hold forever again.
Born in Scottsbluff, Neb. on May 4, 1923, Mary Jane passed peacefully in her sleep on Nov. 22, 2011.
Mary Jane was an incredible and caring wife, mother, grandma and friend. She will be thought of often and missed, especially by her family and friends. She will now be happily joined in heaven where she will then be able to be with her World War II veteran husband, Russell Graves, who has been watching his one true love since his passing to be reunited together again for eternity. Mary Jane and Russell Graves moved to Bishop in 1959.
The angels gathered near your side, so very close to you! For they knew the trials in your life, that you were going through.
Mary Jane is survived by her children, Sharon and husband, Fred Yarcho of Washington, Janice and Paul Zartun of Denver, Colo., Kent Graves, Larry Graves and Leroy and wife Rebecca Graves, all of Bishop; grandchildren, Freddie and brother Chris Yarcho, Jennifer and brother, Andrew Zartun, Michael, Shawn and sister, Janet Graves, Tisha Graves and Michele Graves; along with many great-great-grandchildren and even great-great-great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers and cards, the family asks that donations be made in Mary Jane’s name to the Hospice of the Owens Valley.
