Vivian Hales Johnson Graves, 82, of Lufkin, died on Wednesday, December 20, 1995. She was born in Angelina County to the late Abe Dennis and Frankie Newberry Hales. Mrs. Graves was a retired Food Service Dietitian for Kansas State University. She was a member of the Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Prior to her moving back to Lufkin in 1977, she had resided in Manhattan, KS, from 1948 to 1977.

Johnson and Brian S. Johnson; fifteen great grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and sisters, Mrs Pearl Pruett, Mrs. Macil Dugan and Mrs. Minnie Lee Hanson, all of Lufkin.

THIS IS MY GRANDMOTHER ON MY MOTHERS SIDE. SHE WAS VERY OLD FASHIONED. STRICT WITH HER HOME AND ALWAYS RULES TO FOLLOW. BUT, ALL IN ALL, I DO KNOW SHE LOVED ME. FOR I WAS HER VERY FIRST GRANDDAUGHTER! WHAT A FUSS OVER ME WAS ALWAYS MADE.

SHE AND MY GRANDFATHER WERE A BLESSING TO US MANY TIMES, AS TIMES WERE VERY HARD FOR ME AND MY SIBLINGS, DUE TO A BROKEN HOME. SHE AND MY GRANDPA WERE ...ALWAYS.... ALWAYS THERE FOR US. I WILL NEVER FORGET THEM.
