Graham Latimer Prentiss, 64, died on Saturday, May 19, after living a life full of love. She is remembered for her unwavering faith in Jesus, her ability to make everything fun, and her desire to pour her life out for others.

No longer limited by her cancer-ridden body, Graham is completely whole and healed in the presence of God whom she loves so dearly. She will be greatly missed by her children - Hayley (Chad) Varner, Steve Prentiss, and Jordan (Abby) Prentiss - her grandchildren - Aly, Morgan, and Mason Varner and Finley Prentiss - and her brothers and sister - Eddie (Barbara) Latimer, Lane Carpenter and Frank (Cynthia) Latimer. She was loved and respected by so many and will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

Graham was born to and preceded in death by Erwin David Latimer III (Lat) and Lane Winship Latimer, on October 1, 1953 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She graduated from the University of Tennessee with a B.S. in Education and from the University of Memphis with a M.S. in Education. Graham’s joy and energy filled the classroom for almost 20 years at Farmington Elementary, impacting the lives of many children, parents, and fellow teachers.

Graham always felt close to God at her beloved Tate, where God’s beauty and bounty overflows. She faithfully served Him through her neighborhood Good News Clubs and through her church, Hope Presbyterian, by mentoring young women, serving as a deacon, and giving back to the church as an active member.

Graham's life will be celebrated on Saturday, May 26 at Hope. Visitation will begin at 10:00 am and the funeral at 11:00 am. Graham wished to continue to support her beloved church and city through Urban Ministries at Hope and the Neighborhood Christian Center in lieu of flowers.
