Mrs. Jamie Graham was born March 29, 1943 in Crawford County, Georgia to the late Willie Fred Respress and Claudia Colbert-Respress.
“Curtis,” as she was commonly called, attended the public school system of Macon County, Georgia, where she graduated from the historic D.F. Douglass High School in 1964.
