She always taught her family to love unconditionally. She liked to travel and spend time with her brother and sisters. She enjoyed making the best of every situation, from a hat rack Christmas tree to repairing everything with duct tape. Coffee and sports were two of her favorite things, which were passed down to her children. So, the next time you are having a cup of coffee or watching sports, just know that Edna will always be there. She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary (Langford) Shields; father, Grover Griffin; brother, Grover Bubba Griffin Jr.; and her great-granddaughter, Kinsee Phillips.
