Theresa Graham, affectionately known to family & friends as “Peaches”, was born on March 7, 1955 in Orlando, Florida to Hezekiah & Annie Mae Graham.  Theresa attended school in the Orange County System and was a student at Jones High School.  She was the youngest of eight children.  She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter sister, aunt & friend.  Theresa was a beautiful social butterfly always smiling and laughing.
Theresa was a faithful member of Greater New Hope Missionary Baptist Church where she served on the Deaconess Usher board as well as other ministries.  She loved all types of music.  She was very outspoken and always the elephant in the room, never backing down from a challenge.
In 1998, Theresa was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called Ataxia,  which results in the loss of full control of bodily movements.  Theresa would attend events dedicated to building awareness of Ataxia coordinated by her son Neddroy along with friends & family.  Currently there is no cure for this disease.
Theresa Graham Bent leaves to cherish her precious memories with her husband Dowen R. Bent of St. Elizabeth Jamaica.

    I wish my daughter would’ve gotten the chance to know her like I did. She actually was able to get me to eat foods I never thought I’d try. 😊 Mrs. Theresa was a wonderful woman and will truly be missed. I love you dear…😪
