Mary Elizabeth Kindrick Griffith, 95, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday October 14, 2021. She was born in Clinchco, Virginia on November 17, 1925, and came to Manassas with her family, leaving southwest Virginia, during the Great Depression. Mary remained in and around Manassas for most of her life. Mary was preceded in death by her husband Early C. Griffith Jr, as well as her father and mother Stuart and Susie Kindrick, and her four sisters and two brothers. She is survived by two children-Betty Dickerson (& her husband Doug) and Donald Griffith (& his wife Pamela), as well as Donald’s children/grandchildren—Robert Griffith (& his wife Margi & their children—Chloe, John, Carter, and Jackson) and Andrew Griffith (& his wife Ashley & their children—Peyton & Cole). Mary especially enjoyed her 6 great-grandchildren—Chloe, Peyton, John, Cole, Carter, & Jackson. Mary is also survived by a couple dozen nieces/nephews and their families. Mary’s niece Bonnie (with her husband Tommy Pearson) and her nephew Frank (with his wife Mary Moore) took care of Mary during the latter years of her life in Manassas, allowing Mary to live independently. She went to live with her son and daughter-in-law, Donald and Pamela in January 2020, where they took care of her in their home in Luray, VA. Mary worked at the U.S. Navy Torpedo Station factory in Alexandria, VA during World War II. In later years she was the Cafeteria Manager at Marstellar Junior High School in Manassas, and a switchboard/console operator when Fairfax Hospital began. Mary was a regular participating member of Haymarket Baptist Church for over 70 years and belonged to quilting clubs at two other churches. Early & Mary Griffith belonged to the Veterans’ Farm Club, sponsor of the Prince William County FAIR since its inception. Mary enjoyed several social and artistic group activities during her retirement. At the Senior Citizen Center, Mary belonged to the knitting club. Always ready to learn, Mary was an avid reader of historical fiction and participated in Memories of the Past. She belonged to the Farm Bureau Women’s Committee, as well as the Homemakers Club (Family/Community/Education). She also enjoyed walking daily with her friends each morning at the Manassas Mall, well into her 90s.
