Ramona Jean Cathey Griffin, 91, of Decatur, Texas went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday evening, May 18, 2022, surrounded by her family and friends. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, June 7, at 3 pm in the choir room at First Baptist Church in Decatur, officiated by Pastor David Lowrie and Chaplain Phillip Weitner.
Born August 23, 1930, in Fort Towson, Oklahoma, Jean grew up on a farm in Katy, Oklahoma during the Great Depression. She was one of seven children who attended a one-room schoolhouse after milking the cows and doing farm chores. She was raised with the ‘fear of God’. Her mother always said, “God has an all-seeing eye and He knows whatever you do.” After marrying her husband, AC Griffin, in Gainesville, she became a Texan. They moved to Wichita Falls, where they raised three children: Sandra, Linda, and Curtis. After retirement, they settled down in the Decatur area and were a part of the community for 39 years. During that time, they were members of Greenwood Baptist Church and later moved their church home to First Baptist Church of Decatur, where AC served as a deacon and Jean served in the Ladies Visitation Ministry.
She was famous for her pies. When a friend or neighbor was sick, Jean would take them their favorite pie. She was happiest when the family joined hands for the blessing and she had all her family around the table. She thought of everyone else first and was always the last one to serve her own plate. Jean’s hobbies included gardening, cooking, rock collecting, and a love of flowers and birds.
Jean is preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, AC Griffin; her parents, Gus and Judy Cathey; brothers Harold and Jack Cathey; sisters Clete, Rusty, Pat, and Betty.
She is survived by daughter Sandra Wester and her husband Frank Wester, daughter Linda Griffin; and son Curtis Griffin, all of Decatur. Jean was also blessed with three grandchildren: Mark Wester, of Decatur, Jordan Wester and wife Lisa, of Burney, and Rebecca Bell and husband Cory, of Gilbert, Arizona. She also had three beautiful great-granddaughters, Peyton and Harper Wester, of Burney, and Addison Bell from Gilbert, Arizona.
