My Granny is Home!

Joan Brown Griffin, 76, passed from the arms of a loving family to the arms of her Loving Savior who will care for her for eternity at 8:56am on Thursday, July 30, 2009. Joan was the youngest of 8 children born to Justin and Maude (Devine) Williams on May 19, 1933, in Howard County. On January 10, 1960, she married Fred Brown, who preceded her in death.

Joan was employed at Delco Electronics, where she met Fred Brown. They worked side by side for many of her 30 years and were able to retire on the dame day. Her marriage to Fred Brown fulfilled her lifelong dream of being a wife and mother. They shared three daughters.

Joan gave her heart to the Lord and was a faithful servant throughout her life. She was a member of the Light and Life Free Methodist Church in Lakeland, Florida. Over the years, Joan and Fred spent many winters in Florida enjoying their days with best friends Merle and Joyce Griffin. Following the deaths of their spouses, Joan and Merle Griffin married on April 5, 2003. Merle also preceded her in death.

Joan spent her life as a caregiver, hosting family and friends, praying and sending cards to those who needed the support of a prayer warrior, and taking care of Fred Brown who suffered from an extended illness at the end of his life. Joan’s mission in life was to be a servant and to take care of others. My Granny will be greatly missed and her life joyously celebrated.

Lori, I know you will miss your grandma "granny." She loved you all so much. We will be remembering you in the days ahead as you "celebrate" her life.
Love, Aunt Carol
