Lynn Niles Graham

Ms. Lynn Niles Graham, age 50 of Dawsonville, GA passed away Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Northside Hospital, Cumming, GA.

Lynn was an employee of Publix Supermarkets for approximately 20 years and was loved dearly by the Free Home community where she worked. Dedicated, determined and always looking for opportunities to bring our community together, her passion for people was displayed over and over again.

Many families benefited from her determination especially at Christmas when she raised hundreds of dollars from the associates at the Free Home Publix and quietly ask several local churches to distribute the money to people in need, never asking for any recognition.

She was a loving mother, daughter, and sister and was very proud of all of her family. A great cook that was not the least bit shy about that fact, Lynn also loved to visit Devils Lake but cared nothing about swimming.

Lynn was preceded in death by her father, Phillip Niles.

She is survived by her son, Matthew Powell of Dawsonville, mother Patricia Frank of Baraboo, WI; grandmother Virginia Richards, Baraboo, WI; brother John (Tracy) Niles, Baraboo, WI; Brother Robert (Erin) Niles, Sun Prairie, WI; sister, Beverly (Jason) Terry, Baraboo, WI. Several nieces and nephews also survive.

A service to celebrate Lynn’s life will be conducted Wednesday, September 13th at 11 AM, Cherokee Christian Fellowship. 207 Marvin Land Lane, Canton, GA 30115. David Whitaker and Scott Huskins will officiate. The family will receive friends from 10 AM until the service hour. A reception and lunch will immediately follow in the church fellowship hall.

Scott Huskins Funeral & Cremation Services is in charge of the arrangements. 678.771.5566

Lynn was truly an angel to this community and will be greatly missed. Since we moved here Years ago we would visit her at Publix and she would always joke around with the kids. She has known them for the past 11 years ( since birth ) and we are all heartbroken today. She will never be forgotten by us all. What a wonderful person the world has lost.

No words can express how much our family's loss of Lynn has affected all of our hearts. Lynn touched the hearts of all who knew her as she was so full of life, positivity and determination.
As I reflect on memories and experiences with her, I can honestly say I had never known Lynn to be anything but positive, larger than life, caring and out going, even in her toughest moments.
RIP in Heaven with you Daddy Lynn!!
Much Love to all who knew Lynn and take comfort in knowing that she will be our guardian Angel and continue helping others from Heaven instead of at our side.

Lynn although we butt heads from time to time you were stil loving, laughing, very helpful when needed and smiling. I never knew when you were joking or serious. But in all seriousness I respected you because you knew the office frontward and backward. Thank you for being a great teacher. Sorry I never let you know. My prayers are with your family. RIP Lynn! You will be missed by many and that included me. You are now at peace and no longer suffering.

This awful news just reached me today. Lynn was the "Princess" of Publix, at least that's what I believe. She was a role model of how to live during her battle. I was in absolute awe of her ability to carry on with chin up, head high and a smile to go with it. I never missed a chance to chat and hug. Laura and I will miss her so, so much. May God provide peace and comfort to family and to all who loved her and may He help heal the void in our hearts. We love you Lynn.
Taylor and Laura

It has been so long since you laughed at me and called me by my silly nick-name in Publix. I'm such a bad friend that I didn't ask about where you were for over a year now. I'm sorry that I didn't do more. I'm sorry I never met your son. My heart hurts that we had a such strong bond and I let time and distance separate us. I'll always miss you. I love you and can't wait to see you in heaven.
