Giffiths, Virginia - Caldwell  
Virginia W. Griffiths 1923 - 2016 Virginia W. Griffiths passed away peacefully June 16th in Caldwell. A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 24, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. at the Caldwell United Methodist Church with Pastor Ralph Lawrence officiating. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff at Autumn Wind, Encompass Home Hospice, and Donna Cooper for their dedicated and comforting care. Virginia was born June 3, 1923 in Newton, Kansas; the middle child of Charles S. and Rena W. Wisler. The family, which included brothers Gene and Tom Wisler, moved to Caldwell in 1925. Virginia called Caldwell and Greenleaf her home for the rest of her life. She married Ed Griffiths, the love of her life, in 1944. Together they reclaimed and grew their 40 acres on Notus Road to over 400 acres of productive farmland. They raised four children on the farm and patiently entertained eight adored grandchildren. Virginia continued to live there after Ed passed away in 2001 until moving to the P.E.O Chapter House. They were both deeply committed to the Greenleaf and Caldwell communities, always pitching in where help was needed. Avid pinochle club players with their neighbors, founding members of the Greenleaf Historical Society, they enjoyed their friends and neighbors. Virginia served on many school committees, the local election board, and was a member of the Notus Neighbors Club. She was a dedicated member of P.E.O. Chapter F for over 50 years. She and Ed enjoyed many adventurous trips with the Good Sam Club, traveling throughout Idaho and beyond with a host of friends. They loved to travel both in the US and abroad. Visiting a child or digging for artifacts in Israel was always a good reason to plan a trip. Virginia loved to sing. She studied voice at the College of Idaho and appeared as soloist at various programs throughout the valley. She continued to share this joy of music throughout her life. Her love of music was represented by her avid support of the Caldwell Fine Arts Series from its inception. She loved engaging in conversation about interesting ideas and exploring the maybes and what-ifs of life. She had a warm smile and vivacious wit that insured that conversations with Virginia were entertaining, and sometimes surprising. Virginia loved to garden, both flowers and vegetables and her tomatoes were to-die-for. She was an accomplished seamstress making beautiful clothing for her growing children. She began knitting while waiting to taxi her children home from their various activities adding sweaters to their wardrobes. Later in life she crafted beautiful quilts. She was a life-long member of the Caldwell United Methodist Church serving on many, if not all, of the committees. She and Ed were active participants in the annual Harvest Festival, selling tickets and making fresh pasta. Virginia made many beautiful and thoughtful banners for the sanctuary and sang in in the choir for many years. Virginia is survived by Linda Pearman (Steve) of Wilder, Idaho, Jim Griffiths (Linda) of Corvallis, Oregon, Ann Montgomery (John) of Westford, Massachusetts, Susan Elias (Elias) of Milton, Massachusetts, eight grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a gift in Virginia's memory to Caldwell Fine Arts Series, the P.E.O. Chapter House in Caldwell, or an organization of your choice.
