Ethel Cauley Graham, age 97, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, February 6, 2021. She was born February 3, 1924 in Pascagoula to Hannah K. Cauley and James Ira Cauley, Sr.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 33 years, William H. Graham, Jr. and her 4 siblings.  She is survived by her 3 children, Linda Langlinais (Charles), Gwen Roderick (Larry), and Rev. Bill Graham (Linda). 11 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

Ethel worked for many years ordering and issuing safety equipment at Ingalls Shipbuilding where she retired in 1982. She worked thereafter cooking for the priests and caring for the Church in Alabama and Florida. At the age of 90, she moved to Tennessee to be near family. Her greatest desire was to be close to God and the Blessed Mother. She was known as a prayer warrior and is, no doubt, interceding for us right now. She will no doubt be loved and missed by her many family and friends.
