Patricia Ann Griffiths July 2, 1966 - December 31, 2018

Patricia Ann Griffiths, 52, passed Monday, December 31, 2018, at her home in Horn Lake, Mississippi. A visitation will be held Friday, January 4, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Twin Oaks Funeral Home (290 Goodman Road East, Southaven, MS 38671). A memorial service will immediately follow at 2:00 p.m. Twin Oaks Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

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.

Patricia Ann Griffiths is survived by her loving husband, of 20 years, David Griffiths; three sons, Matthew J. (Jennifer) DaPrato, Adam J. DaPrato, and Skylar Griffiths; two daughters, Lauren E.(Taylor) Rowell, and Mallory C. Griffiths; five brothers, Harold (JoAnn) Marshall, Bob Marshall, Joey Marshall, Steven Marshall, and James Marshall; sister, Marie (Cor) Fahringer; and four grandchildren, Aubrey DaPrato, Luke DaPrato, Hensleigh Rowell, and Maeleigh Rowell.

    As I mourn and grapple with the thoughts of Patty leaving and starting her next journey of Heaven and Eternity…I think of the loss for us mere mortals. She was so full of life and only wanted to live… “ to grow old with David, to see her children grow up and then to be a part of her grandbabies life”. She was so content and happy with her life, she wanted it to go on forever. And it seems like a mistake that she was taken so young.
    I moved into a house in Horn Lake and within 2 days the new neighbor came over to welcome me, food in hand…first thought… how pretty she is. Blonde hair, blue eyes, a cute little figure and a smile like sunshine. Within days, her strong wing had pulled me into her family Friday nights…tons of kids dancing…David included. Patty and I watching from the table, it became clear, the other wing was David. He…tall, dark and handsome, with a smile like sunshine – (are they movie stars?)
    The love story of David & Patty can be a movie…it was real, it was passionate. They could not walk by each other without touching. She could say 3 words to him and crack him up – he did the same. He was the first person she called out to and he always answered without hesitation. They were a joy to watch.
    So I say, thank you to God for letting this little pistol Patty become a friend…and to David, it had to be this way because she would not have survived without you and to Patty’s kids, fear not because her love for you and the things she taught you will come back to you for the rest of your lives.
