Obituary

Rasalie “Boots” Graham daughter of the late Ernest and Sylvia Hairston was born June 3, 1934 in Logan County, West Virginia. Rasalie was the youngest of nine children, but at an early age was admired for her tenacity and passion to help and care for others. She attended public schools in Logan County and was a graduate of Aracoma High School.

She was united in holy matrimony to Edward Graham in 1955. This Union was blessed with three children Preda Bailey, Edward Hairston and Angela Hairston.

Rasalie was a Sterile Processing Technician for Cleveland Hospital and later concluded her career at Logan General as a Medical Assistant. She was a member at The Glorious Church of God in Christ in Omar, WV. As a result of her generous spirit and loyalty, she was loved by many. Rasalie Graham peacefully departed this life on 5 January 2020 in West Georgia Hospice, LaGrange Georgia. We will remember and cherish the time she was present on Earth. Rasalie’s love and influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her.

Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her three children: Preda Bailey of Charleston, WV, Edward (Teresa) Hairston of Ft. Mitchell, AL and Angela Hairston of Mansfield, TX. She is survived by eight grandchildren: Oliver (Denise) Hairston, Marques (Carla) Hairston, Marquita (Willis) Peoples, George Donaldson, Andrea (Michael) Drake, Kandace Donaldson, Emeral Moultrie, and Tyrae Hairston. Also survived by nine great grandchildren: Isaac Reynolds, Des’ Tini People, Elijah Peoples, Josiah Peoples, Michael Drake Jr., Eliana Peoples, Joshua Russell, Nova Hairston and Ethan Donaldson. Rasalie is also survived by her sister, Elizabeth “Sis” Scruggs of Toledo, OH, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. Rasalie was a loving and dedicated sister, aunt, cousin and dear friend.

Services will be held at 12 p.m. Saturday, January 11, 2020 at the Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church, Jerry West Highway, Stirrat WV.
The viewing will be from 11 – 12 and service will convene immediately following the viewing.
