When not working, she was the voice of reason for all political figures, saving the day of many brides and bridesmaids, making their dresses, and serving as the "Dragon Lady", but her greatest pride was to be "Mama Jo" to her three boys and her grandchildren.

Griffith (Heather), William "Kyle" Griffith (Tiffany), brother Jay Hay, sister Jackie Camp(Ronney), 5 grandchildren, many friends and family who loved her dearly.
