“Mary was an amazing person all around. She was a devout Christian, wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She cherished her family dearly. Mary did not have life insurance or any means to plan for this horrific event. Mary was the main source of income in her household.

“Any donations will go towards the funeral cost, a headstone and anything the family may need. This is a wonderful family and at this time, they are very much in need of our help. Please support this family in any way you can. No donation is too small. Please keep the Griffith family in your thoughts and prayers.

Mary is preceded in death by her father, Gene. She is survived by her mother, Marge; husband, Mark; son, Ethan; daughter, Shyanne; granddaughter, Skylar; brother, Clinton (Jessica); nephews, Colby, Hunter and Isiaha; niece, Isabella. Mary, you were taken way too soon. You will be missed dearly. Fly high sweet Mary.”
