Margaret Jean Graf, age 96 of Winter Park, passed away Sunday, May 2, 2021. She was born February 10, 1925 in Medina, New York.

Mama Jean lived her life always putting her family’s needs before her own. She devoted her life to her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren throughout our lives. When we needed help, she was ALWAYS there. Not only was she available for us, but she always was happy and loved to laugh. She had a keen sense of humor and glimmer in her eye.

Both Mom and Dad shared their faith in God with us. We followed her lead as she took us to Mass every Sunday without fail. They led us to a personal relationship with Jesus by example. She spent hours sending out special occasion cards to family members and a few select friends. When you went to the mailbox, you would know you got a note from her by the vibrantly decorated envelopes. She would spend hours dressing up the envelopes with stickers reflecting your personal likes. Mama’s favorite pastime in her younger years was sewing. She spent hours creating outfits for all her girls, even the grandchildren. Although it wasn’t her favorite activity, she made wonderful meals for the entire family.

Dinner time was always family time- a unique and daily event. Mama was the glue that bound us all together throughout our lives. She was our hub. We would gather around her. You couldn’t help be drawn to her effervescent personality: kind, gentle, funny, and generous just like Jesus.

She is survived her children, Terri Frerking and husband, Don; Tina Hohreiter and husband, Vaughn; Paul Graf and fiance Teresa Douglas; Mary Kay Divine and husband, Rian; and Ellen Graf. Also survived are 12 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.

Visitation will be held Sunday, May 9, 2021 from 6-8 PM at Baldwin Fairchild Funeral Home, Goldenrod Chapel. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11AM Monday, May 10, 2021 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 5900 Oleander Drive, Orlando, Florida 32807. Entombment will follow at Glen Haven Memorial Park in Winter Park.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to: St. Joseph's Indian School P.O. Box 326 Chamberlain, SD 57326 or online at www.stjo.org\flowers

Heaven has just gained the sweetest soul I know.
I will always remember... her smile, the laughter, chats around the dining room table, the beautiful clothes she sewed me, watching General Hospital with her every afternoon during high school, day trips to New Smyrna Beach riding in the back of her station wagon, driving on the beach dragging our feet out the back, lunch at Manny’s and ice cream on the way home, her beef stroganoff, Sea World and my whale tail pearl for my 16th birthday, stickers on every letter she sent, clippings just for me of every Family Circus and Dennis the Menace, prom, my wedding, “bow wow”, laughing uncontrollably, the sandbox, measuring our height and my kids’ height on her doorframe, movies while piled in her bed, singing at her 50th anniversary and her 90th birthday, her times with my daughter and son, her unconditional love for her family, her waving goodbye from the carport every time we left.

Thank you Grama for all the love and for always making me feel so special. I love you more than I can ever express. Rest In Peace. I will see you again in Heaven. 💕💙💕
