Judith was born August 22, 1939, in Creston, Iowa to Hugh and June (Shoenhair) Griffin. She graduated from Trenton High School.

After all her kids graduated, she worked at Randall Foods in the Deli/Restaurant. Judith was a member of the WIBC, several local card clubs, and was a member of Cedar Hills Community Church
Judith was a very loving, caring, honest, and loyal mother and wife. She was always great at sending cards of thanks, for special events, and in times of need to family and friends. She was known for her smile, wit, humor, friendly conversation, and for welcoming everyone as a friend. She was always complimented on being sharply dressed and looking snazzy! Judith loved her family very much, watching her kids and grandkids, working the concession stands to help with fundraising for her kids’ sporting events, attending all their sporting events (many will remember – rock and fire baby), attending mystery events with Gene and her friends, and shopping with her daughters. She loved couples bowling with Gene, golfing, playing cards, sitting outdoors, playing yard games, cooking, dining out and traveling.
