Sharon Y. Graves


Sharon Yvonne (Merriner) Graves passed away peacefully on July 6, 2019 in her home while surrounded by family.
She was born on May 7, 1944 to Sherman and Bertha (Blazer) Merriner, of Traverse City. Sharon had four siblings named Larry, Sherman, Chuck and Betty.
On March 23, 1963 she married her husband, William James Graves, who passed away in 2003. They had five children named William James Graves Jr. (deceased), Pamela Yvonne (Graves) Harger, Randy D. Graves, Steven Anthony Graves and Brent Allen Graves; and their grandson, Trevor M. Walton, all of whom live in the surrounding areas of Traverse City, Kingsley and Fife Lake.
Sharon had 15 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren, whom she loved to see and spend time with. When she was not spending time with her family, she was spending time with her two dogs, Sofie Ann and Boo Boo.
Sharon loved to go shopping, play cards, spend time with family and friends and have cookouts and get-togethers at her home in Kingsley. She enjoyed sitting on her front porch, being outside and always loved to have tons of family and friends around.
