Women's Center

Born in 1910, Clifford Graham grew up on her family's ranch near Cheapside, Texas. She was taught the value of hard work as a child and carried that with her as an adult where she lived a frugal and very simple lifestyle, working as a school teacher until her retirement in 1965. Late in her life she had managed to acquire a substantial amount in savings, allowing her the opportunity to give back.
