Corinne Gonya Graham



BAR HARBOR – Corinne Gonya Graham passed away peacefully on Jan. 21, 2017, at Birch Bay Village, Bar Harbor. She was born on March 31, 1926, in Boston, Mass., to Frederick H. Gonya and Charlotte (Lord) Gonya.

Corinne was educated in Bar Harbor and Palm Beach Schools in her younger years. She spent her high school years at Northfield School for Girls in Northfield, Mass., graduating in 1944.

On Sept. 27, 1946, she married William F. Graham Jr. They had three children — Anne, Charlotte and Gordon. Corinne loved playing golf, entertaining, sitting on a beach, but most of all she loved her family. She had 11 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Not bad for being an only child.

She is survived by her daughter Anne Graham Clark and husband, Tom, and their children Peter, James, Matthew; her daughter Charlotte and husband, Roy, and their children Jayme, JoAnna, Roy Jr. and Andrew; her son Gordon and his children Lucy, David, Emily and Ian; her great-grandchildren Mea, Preston, Nicole, Zoey, Zachery and Alex Clark; Alexa and Nathan Corey; Luke, Jacob and Willa Rice; Emilynn, Lyman, Willemena and Waylon Pinkham. Corinne was pre-deceased by her parents, and her husband, “Buddy.”

Funeral services and burial will be announced in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the MDI Hospital Auxiliary, P.O. Box 8, Bar Harbor, ME 04609.
