Born and raised in Jamesville, NC, she was the daughter of Archie and Dare Brown.
She was always proud of her family and her roots, In 1939, she married William
H."Billy" Griffin and moved to Williamston, NC. She was by all accounts a
homemaker, raising three wonderful daughters, and was very involved in all of their
activities. She was a faithful member of First Christian Church and the local Lioness
Chapter here in Williamston. Later she became a grandmother to seven
grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren that she adored until the day that
she died. She taught her family that home is where you are always welcome and
openly loved. She nourished her family with Southein dishes of boiled cabbage,
fried chicken, and homemade biscuits around a table full of warm conversation, Her
back porch was a place that family and friends could gather, rock in her rocking
chairs, drink a bottled Coke and solve all the world's problems. Her door was
always open, her hugs were full of love, and her laugh was infectious. She will be
greatly missed.

During the last years, what mattered most were her frequent adventures out of the
house on car rides and visits from family and friends. She never lost her smile, laugh
and joy with which we all knew and loved. Our Mother's gift for family and talent
for empathy were her lifetime achievements, and by all accounts rendered her with
much success. Our family gives an extra special thank you to her devoted
caregivers: Barbara, Emmie, Betty, Anita, Tina, Wendy and Chris, Because of you
and your wonderful care, Mother was able to stay in her home, retain her
independence and continue to enjoy all the days of her life.

In addition to her parents and eight siblings, Mrs. Griffin was preceded in death by
her husband, Billy Griffin in 2003, She is survived by daughters: Betty Griffin
Robertson and husband Gerald, of Raleigh, NC; Nancy Griffin Lewis and husband Bill
of Mansfield, GA; and Kathy Griffin Slade and husband Taylor of Williamston, NC,
Grandchildren: Tracey Robertson Lewis, Thomas Stephen Richardson, Crissy
Robertson Jeckel, Stephanie Elizabeth Carter, Mary Katherine Slade Saunders,
Richard Bog Slade and Jodie Rebecca Lewis. Great Grandchildren; Anna Brook
Richardson, Ashley Elizabeth Jeckel, Allison Katherine Jeckel, Erin Elizabeth Carter,
