August 26, 1955 ~ August 8, 2021 (age 65)

The world lost a beloved mother, mema, wife, and friend, Deborah Graham, on August 8th, 2021.

Deborah was born on August 26th, 1955 in Chadbourn, to the late Rufus Clyde Mincey and Kathleen Boone Mincey. She was the second of three children born into her childhood family. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Larry Wayne Mincey and her youngest son, Ricky Gene Graham, Jr.

Deborah graduated from West Columbus High School in 1973 and then went on to graduate from Southeastern Community College with an Associates Degree. She was a loyal employee for Jackson Hewitt for over 20 years. Over her time there, she gained not only clients, but many friends.

Deborah as a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. To stop and talk to her, was to learn all about her three grandsons and see all their pictures. She was more than devoted to her family. She lived, breathed, and loved her family with her whole being and they loved her and will miss her more than words can ever describe.

She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Ricky Gene Graham of the home; children, Brandon Wayne Mincey of Whiteville and Deanna Michelle Graham Register and husband, Patrick Wayne Register, of Louisiana; three grandsons, Chance Wayne Mincey, Wyatt Gene Register, and Everett Wade Register; sister, Doris M. Ange of Greenville, NC.

Arrangements will be announced soon by Worthington Funeral Home in Chadbourn, NC.
