Jeanne Elaine Griffin

Jeanne Elaine Griffin, 90, died peacefully Sept. 24, 2014, in Enumclaw, her home for the past 17 years.

She was born June 4, 1924, in Merced, Calif., the older of the two daughters of Ira V. Abbott and Rose Linea Lindbloom Abbott. She grew up in Merced and graduated from San Jose State College with a degree in commercial art. She moved to Palo Alto, Calif., to work as a window display designer for an apparel store. After World War II, she married Leslie R. Griffin. They had two sons, and the family moved to Washington state in 1959. She and her husband owned the Old Confectionery Art Gallery in Black Diamond for many years. She won many awards for her acrylic and collage works at many art competitions across the state. She is remembered as an amazing bridge player, a gifted seamstress, a lover of wildlife and animals, and a creative soul.

She is survived by sister Linea Abbott Ferebee of Desert Hot Springs, Calif., and sons Grant P. Griffin (Peg) and Donald R. Griffin. She was preceded in death by her husband in 1991 and granddaughter Briana Rae Griffin in 2004.

At her request, there will be no services. Her charities of choice would be the Salvation Army and any animal welfare organization.
