Ann Rebecca "Becky" Griffith

Born May 24, 1940, Ann Rebecca (Neuhoff) Griffith, known to all as Becky, said her final farewell to the life she loved so much early Christmas morning 2020.

Becky is predeceased by her mother, Ann Folsom Neuhoff and father, Joseph Neuhoff Sr.

Becky is survived by her loving husband Don L. Griffith. They were grateful to have celebrated 58 years of marriage together.

Becky is also survived by her 7 children and their spouses, plus 16 grandchildren: Greg and Vanessa Griffith and Nicolas and Francisco Griffith (Dallas, TX); David and Carmen Griffith and Andrew and Alexandra Griffith (Dallas, TX); Mark and Michelle Griffith and Luke, Jake and Tatum Griffith (Waxahachie, TX); Cindy Austin and Jaden and Brooke Austin (Austin, TX); Kathy and Michael Hill and Sawyer and Harmony Hill (Fort Collins, CO); Paul and Melissa Griffith and Truman, Coleman and Vivian Griffith (Dallas, TX); and Tim Griffith and Marie and Brooks Griffith (Dallas, TX). She is also remembered by her brother Joe Neuhoff II (Dallas, TX), and his 5 children and their families.

Becky was a loving and devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She touched many lives and will be remembered in the hearts of countless people. She pursued her relationship with Christ daily through her reverence to God in all things and to the service she provided her community. Some of her favorite ways to live her faith was through the time she invested in CHRP, CCD, RCIA and serving as an eucharistic minister.

Becky was born and raised in Dallas, TX. She attended Ursuline Academy and attended Barat College in Chicago and then completed her education degree at St. Mary’s, San Antonio.

She met and married Don in Dallas, TX, and they moved to Ennis, TX, and soon settled in the countryside in Palmer, TX. Pouring heart and soul into the building of a home, they welcomed seven children and all the joys and challenges that come with a large family. She shared so much of what brought her joy in life with all those that loved her.

We celebrate her deep faith, love of nature, especially flowers and trees, love of books, learning, traveling, riding horses, dancing, music, sewing, games and cards, crossword puzzles, fishing, visiting outside under a shade tree, tennis, fireworks and cuddling babies. All of this and more are reflected in the best parts of us that she leaves behind as her legacy.

For close friends and family, and to protect all participants, a socially distanced and masked rosary and funeral was held to honor the life of Becky Griffith on Sat., January 2nd at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church, 401 E. Lampasas St, Ennis, TX 75119. Rosary at 9:30 a.m., and Funeral at 10 a.m.
