Patricia Lynell Graham, age 69, born August 29, 1952, to Clifford Franklin Sr. and Ms. Martha Jean Jordan, entered into God's holy choir January 7, 2022.
Patricia was better known as "Patti G", also as, "Maw Barker and the Boys". She attended Roosevelt High School and did one year and a half at Sinclair Community College. She worked at General Motors, the Post Office and other jobs in Dayton.
On her life's journey, she was most known for having a Big and Generous Heart. She opened her doors to those in need and to those who were troubled. If you needed Patti G she was there. To know her was to love her and that being said, yes, she could get ornery at times, but that characteristic did not define all that she was, it made her who she was. She walked to the beat of her own drum and the music she made was attractively beautiful.
She was a faithful member of Greater Revelation Church of Christ where she was a dynamic choir member who loved to sing the praises of our Lord, as well as, a Sunday School teacher, along with a host of other callings the Lord led her to. Patti G was simply 'The Little Engine that Could'.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Clifford Franklin Sr., Ms. Martha Jean Jordan; daughter, Kiana; sisters, Gwendolyn Sims, Ronnie and Bonnie Jordan, Pamela Porter; nephew, Derrick Waller.
She leaves to cherish her memory, sons, Anthony Sr. (Achsah) Franklin, Jerome Barrett, Le'Ron Turner, Jayson Sr. (Tawanda) Turner; special daughters, Brianna Jones, Latricia Dixion; brothers, James (Barbera) White, Edward (Sheilah) Franklin; sister, Sheila Jordan; special friend and pastor, Rev.
