Death: Jun. 19, 2005

Flora Graham Trask, widow of John M. Trask, died at her home at the age of 92.
For many years, she and her family spent their summers at Wrightsville Beach where they built a cottage in 1937.
She was born one of nine children of Dr. Benjamin Robinson Graham and Edith Bolles Graham.
In 1915, the family moved to Wilmington, NC, where she attended grammar school and high school before attending St. Mary’s College in Raleigh, NC. In 1934, she married John M. Trask and, as a young bride, came to Beaufort where her husband had joined his family’s vegetable farming business established in 1908 by his father, George W. Trask of Wilmington, NC.
In 1939, she and her husband bought a home on Bay Street in Beaufort, where she raised her family and enjoyed the many years of her life.
Mrs. Trask was well known among her family and friends for her keen business instincts, her quiet and dignified demeanor, her sense of humor, and her progressive views of life. She served as a strong partner to her husband in his farming, business and civic activities.
She was an early member of the Sea Island Garden Club, a member of the Beaufort Female Benevolent Society, a member of St. Helena’s Episcopal Church, and was one of the organizers of the First St. Helena’s Church Home and Plantation Tours.
She is survived by her four sons: John M. Trask Jr. of Beaufort, George G. Trask of Beaufort, Charles H. Trask of Virginia Beach, VA, and Frederick G. Trask of Beaufort; a sister, Mary Graham Shigley of Tacoma, Washington.
