Condolences to all the Griffin family. As so many, I have very fond memories of both Betty and Michael. She has left a very lasting memory in her large and loving family. May you be inspired by her dedication and devotion to you all.
Thank you Maureen. She will definitely live on in her many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
It was nice to see Mike and Joe at the visitation and funeral after so many years. Lots of stories shared from the old days.
Betty lived her life in service to her family – frequently before she tended to her own needs and desires. She was a no-nonsense woman, a quiet pillar of strength, a formidable woman. The Griffin and Haugh families have lost their matriarch. May you find ways to express Betty’s qualities through your thoughts, words, and deeds
