Mrs. Griffith was retired from JCPenney stores where she worked faithfully in stores in Monroe and Shreveport for many years. She was also a faithful member of the First Church of the Nazarene in Shreveport, as well as First Baptist Church Swartz, LA.  Mrs. Griffith will be remembered for her beautiful alto voice which she faithfully used in church choirs and other various singing opportunities with her children.  She also loved taking family pictures and could be spotted with a camera in hand and a quick "Gotcha" and a smile, gathering memories over the years.

Please keep the Griffith Family lifted in Prayer.
