She attended school in Beardsley, MN, and graduated from Beardsley High School in 1950. She continued her education at an agriculture school in Morris, MN. Patty worked for many years at Dresch’s Grocery Store in Beardsley. She was united in marriage to Richard G. Graham on June 1, 1968, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Together the couple made their home on a farm in Traverse County where they raised livestock and grain. They retired and moved to Beardsley in 2005.
