Lela Marie Griffith

July 4, 1954 ~ February 23, 2018 (age 63)

Heaven gained a precious angel on Friday, February 23, 2018.  Lela Marie Kirkwood Griffith, age 63, formerly of Pascagoula Mississippi, Fort Walton Beach Florida and Jacksonville Florida has left her temporary home on earth to enter her eternal life with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Marie leaves to cherish her memories her beloved children, Heather Griffith, Tina Griffith, Donna Griffith Williamson (Nick McMillian) and her precious grandchildren, Alyssa McCoy, Anthony McCoy, Aiden Williamson, and Emaleigh Williamson. She also leaves behind many treasured nieces, nephews, cousins, sisters and brother in laws and very special friends.  Marie is preceded in death by her spouse of many years, Don Griffith, her parents, Robert and Ruth Kirkwood, her brother William Tompkins, mother and father in-law Frank and Marguerite Griffith and sweet baby McMillian which she is rocking and loving on today.  Marie will always be remembered for her huge loving heart and her infectious smile. She would take any bad situation and find the positive and would help everyone else to find the silver lining in everything.        As one of her friends recently said; She has touched many lives with her faith, love and kindness. If wings are given based on the greatness of a lady, hers will be the prettiest ones there.      Marie will surely be missed by everyone that had the pleasure to meet her on this earth but we do know she will be saving a place for us in paradise.  A time of visitation will be held from 10 to 11 am Saturday, March 3, 2018, at McLaughlin Mortuary Chapel. Funeral Services will be at 11 am with Pastor Ken Loubriel Officiating. Burial will follow at Beal Memorial Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to American Foundation For Suicide Prevention.  Pallbearers: Anthony McCoy, Aiden Williamson, Paul “Butch” Schaffer, Tim Schaffer, Chad Tompkins, Scott Griffith, William  Green, Johnny Griffin, Doug Spratley .  Expressions of love and sympathy can be viewed or submitted online at www.mclaughlinmortuary.com
