Obituary-Alicia Kay Graff

Alicia Kay Thoman Graff, age 37, of Concordia, Kansas Passed away Wednesday, November 9, 2022, in Belleville, Kansas.

Alicia was born on April 12, 1985 to Randy L. and Deborah J. (Appleby) Thoman in Concordia, Kansas. She graduated from Concordia Junior-Senior High School in May 2003 and briefly attended Cloud County Community College.

After a 17-year courtship, Alicia was united in marriage to her soulmate, David Wayne Graff on June 17, 2022. Together, they shared an amazing love story.

Alicia worked as a cashier at Walmart #1282 for several years until her health made it impossible for her to continue working.

She enjoyed the customers, many who went only through her checkout specifically, because they enjoyed her kind, genuine, outgoing, positive and friendly personality as well as the experience and the knowledge she possessed towards them.

Alicia deeply loved her family, friends and her fur babies. She was a patient, genuine, kind, loving, caring, soul with a true heart of gold. She was never one to complain about anything, despite being in so much physical pain, and never said a bad word about anyone. She grew up always having a strong faith in the Lord. That often lead her to always being happiest whenever she was doing something to help someone else, especially those who were less fortunate. She enjoyed going for drives in the country, being in the outdoors weather watching, spending time with family, friends, and her animals, watching her favorite shows on Netflix, and trying to repair different things on her own.

Survivors include her husband, David W. Graff, Concordia, KS; parents, Randy L. and Deborah J. Thoman, her fur babies, Ore, Enya, and Chance, her Best Friend Rachel Mallory (Vonn), all of Concordia, grandfather, Gary D. Appleby, Westmorland, KS, grandmother, Beverly J. Thoman, Concordia, KS, and in-laws, Carl and Karen Graff, Glen Elder, KS, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and countless friends.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother Karen K (Mallam) Appleby, grandfather Austin J. Thoman, and uncle Franklin A. Thoman.
