Dorothy Jeannine “Dottie” Griffin was born December 16, 1944. Dottie was the oldest of 5 children. She watched over all of them like they were her own.
Unfortunately, the doctors told her that she would never have children of her own, but in 1990, all that changed when she met and fell in love with Leamon Griffin. She not only had a daughter, but, eventually, had two grandsons and five great-grandchildren, and she was adored by all of them.
She accomplished a lot in life. She graduated from Florida State College with a bachelor’s degree, worked in civil service with the Navy for 30 years, and, even after she retired, she continued to work part-time at JC Penny and Lowes.
She was loved by many and made several friendships with young and old alike. Several of these people referred to her as their work “Mom.” She was a Christian and always exuded God’s love to everyone she met. If you were her customer, you never left without hearing, “Have a blessed day.” Her love will forever be engraved on our souls!
Services will be 3 p.m. Tuesday at Spry Funeral Home Chapel. Burial in Roselawn Cemetery. Visitation is from 2 p.m. until service Tuesday at Spry Funeral Home.
She is survived by her loving husband, Leamon Griffin; daughter, Cassandra Murray and husband Kirby; grandsons, Joshua Wright and wife Amanda, Timothy Wright and wife Yasmine; great-grandchildren, Greyson, Serenity, Kyndall, Lucianna and Varian Wright; sisters, Sandra Voland Chang and husband Teddy, Carmen Voland; and nephews and nieces, Nathan Chang and wife Elizabeth, Paul Chang and wife Kimberly, Sherry Schafer and Malcolm Schafer.
