Marianne Helen Graham, 81, of Toms River passed away on December 28, 2020 at Community Medical Center. She was born in 1939 to Edward and Marion Brady in Newark, NJ and graduated from Sacred Heart Grammar School and St. Vincent Academy. On a weekend trip to the shore, she met the love of her life Gerald Graham and they married in 1960. Together they settled into a home in Toms River which they respectfully named Summerfield farms after Gerald’s mother. There they resided for more than 50 years, raised 6 children while tending to chickens, ducks, geese, goats, cats, and lonely souls. Marianne and her husband Jerry owned and operated A.E. Graham and Sons TV & Appliance store in Toms River for over 55 years. They were active in their community, church, Toms River Elks Lodge and Toms River Country Club. She was a devout communicant at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Toms River and an active member of the St. Joseph Grade School PTA while all six of her children attended. During her life, her home was always the focal point for family, neighbors, and friends. She was known as a second mom to many providing love, a listening ear, a place to stay and a good meal to whomever was in need. Never turning a stray cat or person away. Friends, neighbors, family or strangers, would always be greeted by her gracious hospitality and an assortment of domestic and farm animals which were under her loving care. Marianne was a proud Trump supporter and was elated to lease a merchandise store in her building during the election. A loyal patriot who loved life and made friends easily. Marianne was a kind, loving, and very generous person with a good sense of humor and contagious smile. Through the years, she made many lifelong friends, some in her life for over 75 years, keeping in close contact and incorporating those fortunate individuals into her family circle. She will be deeply missed by many and cherished in our hearts forever. Marianne was predeceased by her parents Edward and Marion Brady, her husband of 58 years, Gerald Graham, and her son-in-law Steven Senerchia. She is survived by her six loving children: Debbianne Senerchia, Scott Graham, Susanne Salerno (Mark), Gregory Graham (Stephanie), Christopher Graham, Kristin Gangemi.
