She was a lifetime lover of small dogs, a songstress, a seamstress, a true-blue “Rosie the Riveter,” a devoted sister and friend, and an inspiration to those around her as she exemplified a beautiful will to live as she so chose, right up until she was ready to move on.

She is survived by her daughter, Cynthia Griffin, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
