Mary "Ella" Graves

Mary Ellouise "Ella" Graves passed from this life on September 7, 2023 at her home.  She was born on February 19, 1948 in Shirley, Arkansas to Euless and Neoma Ross, and was a resident of Benton, Arkansas at the time of her death.
 
She was predeceased by her parents; her brother, Jim Dozier; and her beloved husband, George Graves. She is survived by her three sons, Calvin, Danny (Lisa), and Steve; her six grandsons, Ross, Hayden (Jordan), Nicholas, Alex (Renea), Mason (Cassie), and Baily; and her great-grandchildren, Aiden, Rhett, Rosalie, and Avery.  She is also survived by her sisters, Pat Berry, Susan Sumners, Linda Graves, and Virginia "Jitter" Thomason.
 
Our beloved MawMaw loved nothing more than puttering in her garden, doing word puzzles, sewing baby clothes, and quilting.  She was her grandsons' biggest fan, and we will miss her terribly.
 
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023 at 11:00 a.m., with visitation starting at 10:00 a.m. at Smith Benton Funeral Home, 322 N. Market St., Benton, Arkansas.
