Nancy Claire Huffman Murchison Griffin

d. January 7, 2018

Nancy Claire Huffman Murchison Griffin was beckoned by her heavenly angels on January 7, 2018 and became free of her failing body. It profoundly saddens her daughter, Lesley Caron Murchison, and son and daughter in law, Trey and Paige Murchison, to see her pass but take great comfort in knowing she was welcomed by those dear ones who passed before her and that she is at peace now. Also left behind to grieve are her brother, Raymond Huffman; her sister, Gwyn Willbanks Ross; her grandchildren, Shayna Murchison Malsam, Dawson Worth Murchison and Taryn Murchison Roose; along with five great-grandchildren. She was dearly loved by her Griffin family – David, Frances, Merianne, Ron, Meredith, Brad, Katherine, Lauren and seven great-grandchildren. Nephews, cousins and friends too numerous to count are also mourning her passing.

Nance entered the world in 1938, the first born to Homer and Beryl Burke Huffman in Kingsville, Texas. She spent her entire life in Texas, except for periodic excursions to travel the world, and was very proud of her heritage.

She was a spirited child, a devoted wife, a loving mother, a passionate teacher, an enthusiastic collector, a dedicated worker, a generous philanthropist, an unimaginable adventure creator and a masterful story teller, a committed friend, a sensitive soul and a faithful daughter of God. The memories of her will surely include her unfailing zest for life, her intense involvement in all surroundings, her unlimited compassion and kindness, her creativity, dreams and joy.

Burial is to be at St. Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery in Beeville, Texas, on Friday, Jan. 12. A service commemorating her will be held at The Church at Horseshoe Bay on Friday, Jan. 19, at 4 p.m. A sharing of memories and celebration of a full and crazy life will follow. The family would suggest any memorials be directed to the Clyde and Nance Griffin Scholarship Fund, 704 2nd Street, Marble Falls, TX 78654, or Hill Country Community Theatre, 4003 West RM 2147, Cottonwood Shores, TX 78657.
