ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Connie Griffin

1950 - 2016

When you attack your life with enthusiasm, dedication, and love, work is not what you do for a living; it is the result of being alive. Connie’s students understand this. They saw it every day in the classroom as they learned to look at the world through the eyes of a woman who made the world better with every math lesson. They learned that the correct answer isn’t always the right one and every variable should be given its own consideration and treated not as a part of the problem, but as a whole unto itself. This is how she treated the world around her; every person, every experience, every shared memory; a whole unto itself.

Recently, Connie passed away from a long illness and is survived by her daughter, Jeannie Zulauf, grandson, Trevin Zulauf, brother David Griffin, and sister-in-law, Pat Griffin. She will be remembered as a mother, Oma, sister, and friend. As a woman who bought a knick-knack in every shop she stepped into. Not because she loved her little things (which she did), but because she knew her small purchases helped the families who ran those stores. Her kindness and desire to help knew no bounds, as she lived without reservation, complaint, or regret. For every child whose mind she touched, she will leave an impression on future generations to come. So, while her body may have passed, her spirit will live on.

Connie Griffin was born November 2, 1950, the daughter of Clyde and Bev Griffin. She died July 5, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There will be a memorial service in the early fall. Sunrise Cremation Society is making her final arrangements.
