1930 ~ 2013 Margarete Elisabeth Graff, age 82, passed away February 8, 2013 at her home in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was born March 24, 1930 in Stettin, Germany to Otto Emil Graff and Hedwig E. Bernstein Graff.
Margarete loved to help her neighbors and knew everyone's dog by name. She was active in the LDS church Ivan's Ward. Margarete loved being a volunteer at temple square. On any day you could find her in her yard playing with the rocks.
She found a new friend in Patricia Draper as her caregiver and they joked and laughed often. She looked forward to Shannon's weekly Friday visits. Thanks Trish and Shannon. The family would also like to give an extra special thank you to the staff at First Choice Hospice especially Liz & Bill thanks for your dedication and compassion.
Mom you'll always be in my thoughts.
