VAN ALSTYNE — Frankie Griffith was born May 13, 1958 and passed away quietly in a Plano hospital January 10, 2018.


She is survived by her mom and dad Latane and Kenneth Mathias of Van Alstyne; sons Kenneth Griffith and wife Melinda, of Emory, Rickey Griffith and wife Amanda, of Van Alstyne; grandchildren Collin, Katelynn, Kenneth, Shana, RonniAnn, Braylynn and Sawyer; sisters, Lola McKinney and husband Hopper, of Calera, OK, Mary Kemp and husband Billy Earl, of Van Alstyne, brother, Billy Moffett and wife Jojo, of Howe; and numerous nieces and nephews.


Frankie was a very loving person who would do without so others would have. Her biggest joy in life were her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. All babies born into her family fell asleep on her broad chest and would break into big smiles and laughs when she played with them, which was her favorite past time. She would always say she would help with the dishes, “but I’m holding the baby.” She was a very loving mother, Meme and Aunt Kankie, and she will be missed dearly.


Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Sunday, January 14 at the Scoggins Funeral Home Chapel in Van Alstyne. Burial followed at the Van Alstyne Cemetery. Pallbearers were Jeremy McKinney, Michael Bennett, Billy Moffett, Brian Gidney, Scott McKinney, Greg McKinney, Tommy McKinney and James Lewis


The family received friends Saturday, January 13 from 6-8 p.m. at Scoggins Funeral Home. Arrangements are under the direction of Scoggins Funeral Home & Crematory in Van Alstyne.
