Marion Eliza Belcher-Griffith began her journey through life on March 17, 1958. She was born to the late Reverend William Heth and Johnie Belcher. As a young adult, Marion Belcher-Griffith united in holy matrimony with Charles Larry Griffith and to this union, five children were born. She was employed by Midland Independent School District as a Head Start Teacher and Family Liaison. It was here in Midland that she retired after 25+ years of teaching. When she realized she was blessed with a gift of inspiration to others, upon her retirement, she decided to further her education while working for Wal-Mart and later, Rock House of Midland, Texas. A loving mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many - young and old, left her beautiful smile, her incredible strength, and her loving and kind soul in the many lives she touched during her journey through life. She made peace with God on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at her residence.
