Margret Anna Schade Griffin
Louisville, GA – Margret Anna Schade Griffin, 81, loving wife of the late Thomas Jesse Griffin, entered in her eternal rest Sunday morning, July 3, 2022 at her home in Louisville. Chapel services will be held at 6:00 P.M. Wednesday evening, July 13, 2022 in the James Funeral Home Chapel in Wrens with Rev. Bill Cain officiating.
Margret was born and raised in Kassel, Germany, on May 9, 1941. It was in Kassell, Germany, where she met the love of her life, Thomas Jesse Griffin, at the Dusseldorfer Hof, while he was serving our country in the Army. They married in Philadelphia, Mississippi, and soon started their family. She found great enjoyment in cooking and eating food from many cultures. Margret enjoyed reading, and in recent years, had developed a fondness for watching news and travel documentaries on You Tube with her friend, Vicky Farmer.
Margret has been described as being independent and feisty. Her life on Earth is over; she is missed, but we take solace in knowing that she lives on in our hearts and for eternity in her Heavenly Home.
Margret is also preceded in death by her granddaughter, Jessica Marie Griffin; parents, Minna Weckesser Schade and Kurt Carl Schade; and brother, Earhart Schade. Those left to cherish her memories include her three children, Mike Griffin (Beverley), Robert Griffin (JoAnn), and Petra Griffin-Vaughn (Eric); great grandson, Brian Reed; sister, Hildegarde Moreau; sister-in-law, Amaryllis Price (Tommy); many nieces, nephews, other extended family, and friends.
The family will receive friends after the services Wednesday evening.
The family would like to extend their heart-felt thanks and appreciation to the staff at Pruitt Hospice Care for their professional, caring and loving devotion.
