Marjorie Brown Griffin, 95, passed away on Monday, May 26, 2014 at her home surrounded by her loving family,
Born and raised in Jamesville, she was the daughter of Archie and Dare Brown. She was always proud of her family and her roots. In 1939, she married William H. "Billy" Griffin and moved to Williamston. She was by all accounts a homemaker, raising three wonderful daughters, and was very involved in all of their activities. She was a faithful member of First Christian Church and the local Lioness Chapter here in Williamston. Later she became a grandmother to seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren that she adored until the day that she died. She taught her family that home is where you are always welcome and openly loved. She nourished her family with Southern dishes of boiled cabbage, fried chicken, and homemade biscuits around a table full of warm conversation. Her back porch was a place that family and friends could gather, rock in her rocking chairs, drink a bottled Coke and solve all the world's problems. Her door was always open, her hugs were full of love, and her laugh was infectious. She will be greatly missed.
During the last years, what mattered most were her frequent adventures out of the house on car rides and visits from family and friends. She never lost her smile, laugh and joy with which we all knew and loved. Our Mother's gift for family and talent for empathy were her lifetime achievements, and by all accounts rendered her with much success. Our family gives an extra special thank you to her devoted caregivers, Barbara, Emmie, Betty, Anita, Tina, Wendy and Chris, Because of you and your wonderful care, Mother was able to stay in her home, retain her independence and continue to enjoy all the days of her life.
In addition to her parents and eight siblings, Mrs. Griffin was preceded in death by her husband, Billy Griffin in 2003.
She is survived by daughters, Betty Griffin Robertson and husband, Gerald, of Raleigh, Nancy Griffin Lewis and husband, Bill, of Mansfield, Ga., and Kathy Griffin Slade and husband, Taylor, of Williamston; grandchildren, Tracey Robertson Lewis, Thomas Stephen Richardson, Crissy Robertson Jeckel, Stephanie Elizabeth Carter, Mary Katherine Slade Saunders, Richard Bog Slade and Jodie Rebecca Lewis; great-grandchildren, Anna Brook Richardson, Ashley Elizabeth Jeckel, Allison Katherine Jeckel, Erin Elizabeth Carter, William Andrew Lewis, Griffin Allen Carter, Jacob Ethan Carter, Gavin Alexander Jeckel, Matthew James Lewis, Phillip Gregory Carter, Katie Frances Carter, Thomas Bog Slade, William Taylor Saunders and Abby Grace Carter.
