1925 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Jean E. Griffin Obituary

Jean Eloise (Gray) Griffin, 88, of Windsor, ended her journey in this world and moved into the next on Sunday, March 9, 2014. She was born on April 15, 1925 in Springfield, MA to the late John & Minnie (Moffat) Gray. She graduated from Springfield Tech High School and worked for Westinghouse and then for The JM Ney Company in Bloomfield until her retirement. She was predeceased by her sisters Florence Godfrey and Ruth Nutter, and by her son John Griffin. She leaves behind her remaining 3 children and their spouses: David & Mary Griffin (Lake Ariel, PA), Cheryl & Terry Mulder (Windsor), James & Sherry Griffin (Manchester), and her daughter-in-law Debbie Griffin (Windsor). She also has 12 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, a great-great-grandson, a sister, Joyce Kosiorek (Enfield), and several nieces and nephews. Jean cared deeply for and was fiercely loyal to her family and friends. Being raised during the Great Depression and entering womanhood during WWII molded her into a hard-working, committed person who would never accept charity but was constantly giving to others. She cared about the underdog and put her care into action whether it involved feeding down-and-outers or reaching across racial divides in the workplace. A day never went by when she didn't call to check on her children and grandchildren and give advice. She also enjoyed flowers, butterflies, and watching the news. Jean was greatly loved and will be deeply missed by all her family and friends. Calling hours will be from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, March 14th at the Carmon Windsor Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Avenue, Windsor. The funeral will be held immediately following at 11:30 a.m, followed by a private family burial. For online condolences please visit www.carmonfuneralhome.com.
