Patty enjoyed many things in life; she loved music (all kinds), dancing with her husband, and had a passion for arts and crafts. She was so very creative and lived to brighten someone else’s day with her magical work or a special one of a kind gift that was made from her heart. She loved to shop, especially for others, oh and shoes. She always had a knack for finding deals when it came to shopping. With a minimal budget, she shopped for every child in Tunica County’s Angel Tree program to ensure they had a very special present under the tree at Christmas time. Not only did she have skills for shopping, but she was also a wonderful cook…the best. She was an excellent baker and chef and Loved to bake her World famous Pineapple Upside down cake for everyone. Patty loved butterflies ever since a young girl, and was always sketching them while thinking. She loved Winnie the Pooh, collecting tea cups, her pooh bag; she never left the house without her pooh bag, and the color blue; especially when her feet were in the sand by the ocean! Patty always made time for family and friends to enjoy great company, and a few margaritas. She was so incredibly beautiful inside and out that it was impossible not to love her. Patty also spent special time with her precious extended family; puppies, Diamond and Elmo; and cat, Abigil. It is no surprise that Patty loved and was loved by so many. She was always in an upbeat mood and put her Heart into everything she did to make everyone around her happy, never considering herself first. If anyone was in need, she was happy to be their shining light. One of her greatest characters was that she stayed true to who she was, never putting on a mask. You always got the true Patty, and without any filters. Although Patty loved many things, she loved her family the most. She cherished the moments and times she got to spend with her precious grandchildren and the rest of the family. She was the perfect wife and a great friend. Patty Griffiths will truly be missed by all her family and friends.
