OBITUARY Print

Priscilla (PAT) Irene Berry GRIFFIN, Comanche OK, Previously of Oklahoma City OK

Priscilla (Pat) Irene Berry Griffin departed from this world into Heaven on Wednesday, March 10, 2021.

Priscilla was born on April 5, 1929 in Seminole, OK and was the 2nd of 3 girls (Truba Colleen Berry Adams and Camilla June Berry Thompson) born to Gladys Howard-Berry and Francis George Berry. The 3 sisters were close confidants and inseparable friends their entire lives

F. G. Berry was a supervisor with Phillips Petroleum, and his job moved the family almost every other year to new towns within Oklahoma and Kansas. Priscilla did well even when she had to go to several schools and graduated after her only year at Deer Creek High School, OK in 1948. After High School Priscilla worked for SW Bell Telephone Company in Oklahoma City.

Priscilla married Billie Joe Griffin in January 1951 in Oklahoma City, OK and George Gregory (Gregg) was born October 1952. Priscilla and Billie Joe divorced in October 1961 and Priscilla learned to become sole breadwinner and single mother to son Gregg. Priscilla rented her first house at SW 34th street and Gregg attended Herronville Grade School, on SW 29th street and then Capitol Hill Junior High.

Priscilla became an Administrative Assistant with the State Board of Barber Examiners at the Capitol Complex in 1965 and later became the Administrator of this government office overseeing the yearly licenses for Barbers throughout State of Oklahoma.

Priscilla Griffin served for 21 years in this office under five Governors, being among the early ones to “Break through the GLASS CEILING” for women in Administration and Management positions in the State of Oklahoma Government.

She was well liked by the Barbers of Oklahoma and was honored in 1986 for her years supporting and helping Barbers cut through the red tape and accomplishing goals for all Barbers in Oklahoma.

Priscilla’s walk through this life had many ups and downs but her faith and knowledge that Jesus Christ is Savior always gave her hope and now everlasting life in Heaven.

Priscilla was welcomed in heaven by: Sisters (Colleen Adams, and Camilla Thompson), by her mother and father (Gladys and F.G. Berry), by her beloved niece, (Charlene Adams Scheffe), by her Grandparents (Roy and Sarah Edith Berry) and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

She left as Mom to Gregg & Flor Griffin; Maga to grandson Travis Griffin & Jessica Giordani, granddaughter Erin Griffin & Verlyn Beaudreau and great granddaughters Violet and Scarlet; Aunt Pris to Sarah Thompson Harlow, Greg Thompson and Shaun Scheffe. Priscilla LOVED all her family, cousins and friends.

An original in many ways, but a "Bellmon Belle", demonstrated a knowledge of how meaningful, compassionate and real change happens.❤️
