Suzzanne Marie Graves

March 7, 1953 - January 10, 2018


Suzzanne (Sue) Marie (DeShazo) Graves was born March 7, 1953 in Fort Walton Beach, FL, to Jesse DeShazo and Ruby Lee Cantwell. She passed away Wednesday, January 10, 2018 in Corn, OK at the age of 64. She received the lord in her heart in 1967. She married her beloved husband Larry Graves in July of 1969. She then graduated from Burns Flat High school in 1971. She knew from a young age she was meant to care for others and became an LPN in 1973. She worked very hard in college, received top grades, and graduated as a registered nurse in 1995. She worked in the health industry for 35 years before early Alzheimer’s set in. Music has played a huge part in Sue’s happiness the last few years. She spent hours a day smiling and sometimes dancing with the nurses. Her grandchildren were the sunshine in her life.

She was preceded by her husband Larry and father Jesse. She is survived by her daughter, Carrie Wilson and husband Jason Wilson of Hinton, parents Eric and Lee Cantwell of Weatherford, and grandchildren Austin and Addison Wilson. Also surviving are four sisters and their families.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful nurses and staff at Corn Heritage Village in Corn and Russell Murray Hospice for their wonderful attention, care, and love they provided. Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association in hopes of a cure someday or to Corn Heritage Village, PO Box 98, Corn, OK 73024.
