Jean Griffis | Obituary - Meridian Star

Interment will follow funeral rites. Robert Barham Family Funeral Home is honored to be entrusted with the arrangements. Mrs. Griffis, 93, of Marion, formerly of Chunky and Philadelphia, passed away Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at her home Mrs. Jean was a retired owner and automotive dealer of Griffis Motors in Philadelphia, Miss. She was a member of Highland Baptist Church. Jean started working for the Ford dealership in Meridian, Miss. in 1949, where she worked for five dealers. After working in Meridian for 30 years Ford Motor Company approached her to partner with the local dealer in Philadelphia. During her working career, she earned the knowledge she needed and the respect of Ford Motor Company. In 1981 she was awarded a Franchise and the Dealership became Griffis Ford Mercury. Jean was the first woman in the Southeastern Region to be awarded a franchise that was not owned by a husband or father, a fact that Jean was very proud of. In 1986, a new building was built and the dealership became Griffis Motors which carry products of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram and employs twenty-six people. Because of her love for her employees and the importance of education, a scholarship had ben established for the children of employees who plan to attend college. So far, over a dozen scholarships have been awarded. Mrs. Jean is survived by her children, Bill Griffis, Dana Carson and Carol Brown (Huff); grandchildren, Tracy Barber, Laura Baucum (Jackie), Cade Carson, Jennifer Settlemires (Steve), Wright Griffis (Leslie) and Addison Griffis (Jamie); eleven great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Mrs. Griffis is preceded in death by her husband W.H. "Pat" Griffis of Chunky, Miss. The Griffis family suggest that memorials be made as donations to Highland Baptist Church Youth Fund in Meridian, Miss. or to Trinity Baptis...

Brooklyn Botanic Garden has a new selfie spot (and some new plants too) - Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Diane H. and Joseph S. Steinberg Visitor Center, which stands next to the Robert W. Wilson Overlook. Architects Michael Manfredi, left, and Marion Weiss of Weiss/Manfredi designed the Robert W. Wilson Overlook. Eagle photo by Paul Frangipane There’s a meadow growing on the roof of the visitor center and a meadow in the Native Flora Garden Extension, which is on the opposite side of the overlook. So when Toby Wolf of Wolf Landscape Architecture selected plants for the overlook, he tried to create a meadow that complements the two on either side of it, he told the Brooklyn Eagle. The overlook project’s planting designer variegated the plants on the overlook rather than clustering them in big blocks. The hill faces south, so Wolf included coastal plants and native plants of the South and the Southwest, which can handle lots of sunlight. The overlook plantings will start flowering next year. img class="size-full wp-image-91111" src="https://brookly...

Flowers-powered Jackets swat away threat from Lugoff-Elgin

On a third and 18 on the second Irmo possession of the night, quarterback John Ragin found a wide-open Omarion Dollison for 52 yards down the middle to complete the drive which took five minutes off the clock. One their next drive, the Jackets converted a third and 12 with a 29-yard touchdown run from Flowers, who broke multiple tackles using a stiff arm while breaking free. "I didn't have to say anything after those big conversions," Campbell said. "Our defensive coaches knew what had happened there. To say the least, they were disappointed. The kids were, too. We have to keep in mind the bigger picture here, too. The entire game, the situation and know that you may want to play some things softer than others." And just like that, Irmo led, 21-0, with eight minutes left in the first half. The L-E defense was not as physical in the first half as they had been in previous games, but that was due to Irmo simply putting it in the air slightly more and running some no-huddle which kept the Demons off-balance. The Jackets also rotated backs and kept players fresh early and often, adding to that balance. "From beginning to end they fought. But this game was all about two or three big plays." Campbell said. "We gave up two big plays and touchdowns when they were behind the sticks; both on third and longs and that just kills a defense. We have to be more aware of our situations. We played physical and hard outside of that."L-E would not get on the board until the four-minute mark of the second quarter by putting on a 11-play, 73-yard drive capped by a two yard Tyler Dixon scoring run. The Demon running backs had their best games of the season as both Dixon and Randall Brown eclipsed 100 yards in a game for the first time. Dixon, in particular, played a superb game. The sophomore had 144 yards on the ground and caught five passes for 49 yards. "You know he just trusted the game plan." Campbell said of Dixon's big night. "He was hitting the holes. I think he just had trust. That's what it comes down too. We had a couple free-hitters. He was really seeing the holes tonight and running behind his pads. He's not a huge guy but runs very well when he does that. " After another quick score that took two minutes off the clock, Ragin found another receiver for a 33-yard scoring pass to give the Jackets a 28-7 lead. L-E had a nice drive --- aided by a pair of Irmo penalties --- which them inside the Yellow Jacket 30, but the clock operator ran a little bit too much time at the end of the last two plays. After Dixon ran out of bounds to get in position for what could have been a field goal, the clock went from four seconds to zero in a hurry. "That was huge going in there." Campbell said. "I thought we had time on the clock. We were actually planning on running that fake field goal that we later ran on the extra point in the second half, but that wasn't the case. "I don't run the clock and it i...

Cypress Gardens will be a 'vastly improved park

Callanan. "We've been taking advantage of the time we've had." Cypress Gardens volunteer Marion McKee has been with the site's horticulture department for six years. The grounds pulled through the flood very well, she said. "The grounds didn't look bad at all," added McKee. "It was the buildings that took the brunt of it." McKee and Cypress Gardens Director Heather McDowell said that the site was closed to staff for approximately a month because water had to drain from the area naturally. McKee's department has mostly had to maintain the grounds, she said, but "it's improved along the trails" thanks to the efforts to prune the flowers. "It's a shame that people can't see it," continued McKee. "They [the roses] were beautiful in the spring and there's nobody to see it. There's nobody to see any of it." Callanan points out that, although much work has been done, not all facilities will be available to the public when Cypress Gardens reopens in late summer. The aquarium and the major events facilities, for example, will remain closed until further notice. Cypress Gardens' journey from devastation to renovation took almost three years. In that time, there was frustration and concern from many employees, regulations that were met, and several ongoing construction projects. But, everyone involved seems ecstatic to open the gates of Cypress Gardens once again. Hopefully, the 170-acre nature sanctuary will be back to inspiring guests far and wide very soon. "It's such a beautiful park," said Callanan. "It's such a struggle not to get people out there to see it." For updates on the park's reopening date, visit https://www.cypressgardens.info.

Museum show a real garden party

Petaluma. They are Tamara Apple at Bluebird Studio (TamaraApple.com), Andrea Paul of Lily and Mint (Lilyandmint.com), and Susan Kelly of Marion Moss Floral Design (MarionMoss.com).Now in her third consecutive year of doing Bouquets to Art, Kelly still considers herself a relative newcomer to the show, a designation that better describes Paul, participating for her second time this year. The veteran, relatively speaking, is Apple, who will be designing a piece for her fourth consecutive year.“In my case, what draws me to Bouquets to Art is the artistic challenge,” says Kelly, who lives on a 1-acre property near the Washoe House, and who works — as many of her fellow participants do — as a creator of arrangements for weddings and other special events. According to Kelly, originally from Chicago, all participants in Bouquets to Art must pass a demanding initial screening, in which they submit photos of past designs, along with references from floral designers who’ve participated in in the show in the past.“What happens is, all the designers go to the museum in January, where certain works of art are labeled as being available for our interpretation,” she explains. “We all select five we are interested in, and a committee lets us know which one we’ve been assigned.”This year, Kelly got her first choice, a painting titled “Still Life with Fruit” by the 19th century American painter James Peale.“It’s a kind of dark and moody piece from 1821,” Kelly says. “It’s pretty great — mostly grapes, peaches and pears. I tend to do fairly literal interpretations of the art pieces, so I usually lean toward the more traditional paintings, Dutch masters and the like.”Her new piece, she allows, is still coming together, but Kelly reveals that she will be interpreting the painting primarily through its colors, rather than building a make-believe bowl of fruit out of flowers.“I’ll be using flowers and other materials that represent the colors in the painting,” she says. Asked to name the most enjoyable part of the annual event, for her, she says it’s the chance to engage with other members of the Bay Area floral community, and to mingle with them at the pre-show fundraising gala the night before the show opens.“For me, it’s so much fun to see everyone all dressed up once a year,” Kelly laugh...

These five people have spent 237 years designing flower arrangements

Ben Taylor, 45 years; and Steph Rice, 44 years. Read: Have a 'green' holiday: How to save energy, reduce waste this holiday seasonRead: Marion family hosting big Christmas light display for the last timeYou don't work that long with the same people without really going through it together. They have been with each other for babies and grand-babies, weddings, tragedies and loss - the same major parts of life for which they spend their days creating floral arrangements for others.Ben Taylor can share without hesitating the exact flowers he used to make a special bridal bouquet 41 years ago: White roses, and miniature carnations in light and dark green. Buy PhotoBonnie Taylor creates a flower arrangement on Friday, Dec. 15, 2017 at Plasterer's Florist, Chambersburg. She has been with Plasterer's for 50 years. (Photo: Amber South, Public Opinion)Bonnie Taylor carried it down the aisle when she and Ben married in 1976, four years after meeting when he began working at Plasterer's. "And now we get to work side by side. I love it. She's not crazy about it," Ben joked, while Bonnie stood nearby at her station, working on a flower arrangement, and quietly agreed. "Sometimes it's a little difficult," she said. Just like the Taylors' relationship is intertwined with Plasterer's Florist, so are their lives and those of their fellow designers. In their 60s, they've all spent their adult lives working at Plasterer's. Each of the ladies started out as a secretary or clerk. Their initial interests in designing arrangements varied, but each got the position in a similar fashion - after a few years in their original position, a spot on the design floor opened and then-owner Herb Plasterer offered it. meta itemprop="name"...
