Margaret A. Griffith

Margaret A. Griffith, 96, of King George County died Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, at home.

She was born Aug. 14, 1917, in Rollins Fork. She was the eldest daughter of the late Chancey and Lily Allensworth.

Margaret enjoyed the outdoors and all of nature’s beauty. She was strong in her faith and patient beyond belief. She was a talented and skilled seamstress, yet modest about her achievements.

Margaret was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister. She was proud of her heritage, children and grandchildren. Her family and friends will miss her and remember her with great love, admiration and respect..

Survivors include her daughters, Judith Griffith Crockett of Bristol and Gay Griffith Baker (Vernon) of King George; four grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren; her sisters, Dorothy Tremblay, Sara Burgess and Marie Sapanara; one brother, John Allensworth; and brother-in-law Edward Colville Griffith (Margaret Ann).

Margaret was predeceased by her husband, Julian H. Griffith Jr.; son Frank W. Griffith; and brother William “Billy” Allensworth.

Margaret’s funeral was held Saturday, Nov. 9, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Oak Grove. A reception followed the service in the church parish hall, with a private family interment following the reception.

Margaret’s family acknowledges and extends their grateful appreciation to her special caregivers Jean, Kim and Marcella. They became very loyal friends to her during her time of need. Also, a special thank-you is extended to her caring, professional team from Hospice of Virginia.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, c/o W. Mason, 601 Colonial Ave., Colonial Beach, VA 22443.
