Annette was born on February 10, 1935 in Ocilla, GA to the late Lonnie Smith and Lucille ( ) McGhee. She worked until her retirement at Bel Arbor Nursing Home as the Activities Director. Annette was a very caring and loving person, who never met a stranger. One of her many traits was hospitality and everyone was always welcome in her home. She enjoyed cooking, vegetable gardening, flower gardening and bird watching. All these things brought joy to her life, but her greatest joy came from her family. In addition to her parents, Annette was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Rev. Herman Eugene Griffin.
Left to cherish her memory are her children: Roger Griffin (Jo Ellen) of Cairo, GA, Angela Elgin of Knoxville, TN, Teresa Hodges of Byron, GA and Gail Ellis (John) of Byron, GA; 19 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.
