Barbara was born in Bynum, Texas on November 3, 1925, and grew up in Venus, Texas. She married the love of her life, Tommy H. Griggs on January 28,1945 in Ft. Worth.
She worked for Consolidated Aircraft during WWII. They moved to Abilene after Tommy returned from his military service in Japan. Tommy's career with Luby's Cafeterias relocated them to San Antonio in the 1950's.
Barbara was a long time member of Trinity Baptist Church. She volunteered her time with various organizations.
Barbara had a very special group of friends that met monthly to play canasta.
We aren't sure how much canasta was really played but the conversation and laughter were plenty.
After a long battle with dementia, she passed away Monday, July 19, 2021.
