Irene Stephenson Griffiths, 101, died peacefully at the Charleston Health Care Center in Danville on March 12, 2018. Irene was born in Stanford, Ky. on Nov. 25, 1916 to James and Belle Stephenson.  She graduated from Danville High School in 1935 and met her late husband, George Griffiths, while he was a student at Centre. After World War II, Irene and George lived in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Connecticut. She dedicated her life to raising her children and supporting her husband. After their retirement forty years ago, they returned to Danville where they remained for the rest of their lives.

In addition to her parents and husband, Irene was preceded in death by her sisters; Virginia Bicknell, Annabel Knuckles, and Gloria Woodson; and her brother, James Stephenson. She is survived by her sons; Jim Griffiths (Sandy) and Gary Griffiths; her devoted sister, Jeannine Sharp; former daughters-in-law, Audrey Griffiths and Judy Doyle; seven grandchildren and step-grandchildren; twenty-one great grandchildren; two great great grandchildren (and one on the way) and seventeen nieces and nephews.

Irene’s cremains will be buried next to George in an informal ceremony at Bellevue Cemetery on Saturday, March 24 at 1:30 pm.

“I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”
