Evelyn “Peg” E. Graves, 90, of South Otselic, NY, passed away at her home on Friday, March 18, 2016, while surrounded by her family.

Born in German, NY on May 4, 1925, Peg was the daughter of the late George and Hazel Coler Bates.  A longtime resident of South Otselic, she was employed at Gladding Corporation for over 40 years.

She is survived by her son, Jerry (Mariquita) Graves of South Otselic; her grandchildren, Lynn Sharp of Sugar Hill, GA, Aaron (Jennine) Justice of Binghamton, and Jeffrey Rosengrant of NYC; and four great-grandchildren.  She also leaves behind her siblings, Harold (Eve) Bates of Norwich, Christine Perkins of Colonial Heights, VA, and Wilma (Tom) Lewis Gray of Guilford; a sister-in-law, Helen Bates of Cortland; stepchildren, Alan (Peggy) Huntley, Arnie (Kay) Huntley, Susie (Bob) Casse, and Lori (Grant) Preston; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her first husband, George Ernest Graves, in 1960; her long-time companion, William Earl Huntley, in 2007; a daughter, Patricia Winners in 1996; and siblings, George “Donald” Bates, Elizabeth “Betty” Bates, Henry “Hank” Bates, and Eugene Lewis.

In keeping with her wishes, there will be no prior calling hours or funeral service.  A graveside service will be held at Valley View Cemetery, South Otselic, NY, at a later date.  Expressions of sympathy in memory of Peg may be directed to The ALS Association, Gift Processing Center, P.O.
