ARIZONA CITY — Vera O. Graham, 93, died on Sept. 13, 2021, at her home in Arizona City.

Mrs. Graham was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, one of seven children of Arthur and Lydia Tetzlaff. She was active in women’s golf leagues, winning many tournaments and trophies. She was well known for her short game and putting skills. She was often told her game was “boring” because her drives were always near the middle of the fairway. She continued to golf until her mid 80s.

She had a very kind heart for cats. Any stray cat was welcomed with a head scratch, a bowl of food and fresh water. During the hot summers she always made sure the birds had tidbits and water too.

Preceding her in death were her husband, Lester; two brothers, Max and Lyle Tetzlaff; and a sister, Echo Epstein. She is survived by three siblings, Lois Ketchey of Calgary, Alberta, Jane Robins of New York and Ted Tetzlaff of Wisconsin; two stepsons, Ronnie Graham of Iowa and Jerry Graham of Arkansas; and many beloved nephews and nieces.

No service.

J. Warren Funeral Services in charge of arrangements.
