Mae Janess Griffith was born in Poolville, Texas on July 27, 1933 to Guy and Lula (Crow) Eaves. She lived most of her life in Weatherford and Mineral Wells. Her career as a nurse spanned over 30 years, working as an OR and ER nurse at Weatherford Memorial and Palo Pinto General Hospitals, and medical office nurse for doctors in Weatherford and Mineral Wells. She was blessed to be married to the love of her life, C.W. (“Dub” or “Mooney”) Griffith Jr., for over 63 years. Together they raised 3 sons whom she loved dearly and for whom she was a constant teacher, role model and protector. Her unconditional love, integrity, faith in God and positive attitude were a guiding light for her boys and a testimony to all who knew her. In retirement, she loved to travel the US with C.W., making friends wherever they traveled in their RV.
