Marguerite Ann “Margie” Griffith, 63, of White Sulphur Springs, passed away Thursday, June 3, 2021 at the home of her sister, Betty Craft, with her family by her side.
Born April 5, 1958, in White Sulphur Springs, she was a daughter of the late Baxter Curtis Griffith and Lucille Allen Griffith.
Margie was a 1976 graduate of Greenbrier East High School and was employed in the food service industry as a waitress. One could always find food, clothing or shelter at her home, because Margie always had a great love for children and older people. She was always an advocate for the down-trodden and was there when they needed her the most.
She was affiliated with the Pentecostal Holiness Church and the Wild Meadow Church.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Wayne, Bernard, Harvey and James; and her sister, Donna Louise Griffith.
Survivors include her son, Charles E. (Buddy) Walls, Jr.; two grandsons, Keegan, and his mother, Daphne Fitzgerald, of Ronceverte, and Gavin, and his mother, Mandy McLaughlin, of Droop; three sisters, Betty Craft, Linda Griffith and Sandra Griffith, all of White Sulphur Springs; two brothers, Baxter and Larry, both of White Sulphur Springs; uncle, William Wyatt Allen, of White Sulphur Springs; and a host of nephews, nieces and cousins.
Margie’s final wishes were for her body to be cremated and her ashes interred with her baby sister, Donna Louise, at Hillcrest Cemetery in White Sulphur Springs. Her request will be honored by her family.
A memorial service will be held Friday June 11, 2021, at 2 p.m. at Wallace and Wallace Funeral Chapel in White Sulphur Springs with Pastor Gene Sizemore and Pastor Donald Fury officiating. Interment to follow at Hillcrest Cemetery.
Visitors may call anytime at Betty Craft’s home at 2833 Big Draft Road, White Sulphur Springs, or at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.
The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the food pantry of White Sulphur Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church on Ingleside Avenue.
