Janet Isabell Griffin was born in the City of Medford, northwest of downtown Boston, which rests on the Mystic River in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. She was born to Roy Albert Griffin of Somerville, Massachusetts and Esther May Crouse Griffin of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Jan was a housewife all her life and a childcare provider for many years. She was reborn into Christianity over 60 years ago and supported several organizations that helped troubled youth, regardless of their religious affiliation. Jan enjoyed reading, gardening and feeding hummingbirds wild birds and enjoyed the company of cats. Alzheimer's caused her severe memory loss, which ultimately lead to her dementia. Jan passed away peacefully in the home of her son Tony. She is predeceased by her husband John Meneilly and survived by two children in California; her loving daughter Gladys Douglas, son in law Phillip and grandchildren Phillip Jr. and Samantha of Chula Vista; her loving son, Anthony Anderson, daughter in law Maria and grandchildren Luis, Juan, Marco and Mercedes of Lemon Grove; as well as great granddaughter Miranda Elena, born the day before Jan’s passing. She is also survived by William (Bill) Staffenhagen, his wife and siblings as well as grandchildren in Washington and daughter Carol Anderson in Canada. Our prayers are with her, the extended family and her friends. Although we mourn her passing, we know she is with God. May she rest in peace.
