Diana Fay Griffith, 70, of Hamilton, passed away Wednesday, June 2nd surrounded by her husband and daughter, after a courageous battle with an aggressive cancer.
Diana was born on April 6th, 1951 in Middletown, Ohio to the late Ella Mae (Dennis) and late Albert Shepard. She graduated from Lakota High School and immediately joined the work force, moving her way up the corporate ladder from file clerk to an Account Executive in the male dominated world of Sales. She loved her job and was such a hard worker, fiercely loyal and incredibly kind.
On February 28th, 1977, she married the love of her life and best friend, Steve Griffith. They loved to travel together, take long drives, talk for hours and raise their only daughter, Daina. She is survived by her husband, Steve, daughter, Daina Griffith and her husband, Daniel Krell of Pittsburgh; her brothers, Tom Shepard, Doug Shepard; her sister, Brenda Haverty; her great aunt, Annie Landis; her great uncle, Bobby Dennis; her two cats, King Leo of Noodle and Sparky Clark The Liddle. She was loved and supported by her longtime friends Judie Dreyer, Sandra Ashby, Phyliss Fayter, Penny Mertz, Nancy Phippins, Roberta Huester, Barb Diebel, Sue Combs, Kelli Andruzzi, and her sister, Brenda.
The kindness of her neighbors and friends helped Diana and her family through this difficult year or seclusion and uncertainty during the pandemic. The constant cards, flowers, meals, letters, daily texts and calls helped make this scary time a little easier. We are forever grateful.
A Celebration of Life Memorial will take place at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a charity of your choice in her honor.
