Mrs. Griggs went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to whom she loved so dearly on Saturday, August 28, 2021. She was born on November 9, 1937, to her loving parents Melvin V. Jordan and Frances B. Jordan, and grew up in the Leavensworth Community. Later in life, she met and married her beloved husband, Richard Griggs, and together, they operated Griggs Grocery and later, Miriam’s Kitchen. While operating Griggs Grocery, they were able to see parts of the world such as Spain, England, Costa Rico, Hawaii, and other places she dreamt of as a young girl from Leavensworth and never believed she would see. She is a member of Bethlehem United Methodist Church and the Ladies Bible Class. She enjoyed operating Griggs Grocery and especially, Miriam’s Kitchen, serving hot biscuits to all that came to enjoy her cooking. She also received her high school diploma in May of 1989, showing that it is never too late to continue your education. Surviving are her daughter, Teresa G. Hendrix (William) of Hartsville, SC; sons, Richard J. Griggs II (Darlene) of Columbia, SC, Marvin Todd Griggs (Jacki) of Pennsylvania; sister, Carolyn Winburn of Hartsville, SC; brother, Colin Jordan (Martha) of Port Wentworth, GA; grandchildren, Jeff Hendrix (Joan), Beth Ramer (Wes), Zachary Griggs (Kristin), Savana Griggs, Makena Griggs; great-grandkids, Madison Hendrix, Riley Hendrix, Bailee Ramer, Charlee Ramer, Hayden Griggs, and Holland Griggs.

A very special thank you to Ms. Sharon Haynes, Ms. Dorothy Mae Joyner, Ms. Frances Soon, and Ms. JoAnn Edwards for all the love and care they have shown our dear Mother.
