A memorial service for Dorothy Ogle Graham, a retired teacher at the Park School, will be held at 2 p.m. Aug. 3 in the auditorium at Broadmead, 13801 York Road, Cockeysville.

Mrs. Graham, who was 79 and had lived at Broadmead about 10 years, died July 4 at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center after a long illness.

Born in Oxford, England, but reared in Catonsville, she was a graduate of the Roberts Beach School in Catonsville and of Swarthmore College. She earned a master's degree at Towson State University and did graduate work at the Johns Hopkins University.

In 1943 she married Leland Graham, who taught business law and history at the McDonogh School. Mr. Graham died in 1981.

From the 1940s until the 1970s, they owned and operated Camp Red Cloud, a fishing camp for boys in eastern Ontario, which Mr. Graham had started about 20 years earlier as part of a group of similarly named camps associated with McDonogh.

Mrs. Graham sang in the Catonsville Presbyterian Church choir for many years and had been a member of the boards of the League of Women Voters of Baltimore County, Baltimore Neighborhoods and the Baltimore County League for Human Rights.

After moving to Broadmead, she chaired the committee of residents that arranged educational and entertainment programs, and she worked on the monthly newspaper.

Surviving are two daughters, Jean Graham House of Lyons, N.Y., and Connie Graham of Williamston, Mich.; a brother, Malcolm Ogle of Palo Alto, Calif.; four grandsons and nine great-grandchildren.

The family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the McKim Center or to the Residents Assistance Fund at Broadmead.
