Mrs. Patricia Jane Griffin Champion, 65, passed away at her home in Pittsboro, Thursday, June 13, 2019.
A native of Chatham County, Patricia was born August 30, 1954, daughter to the late Thomas Harold Griffin and Jean Johnson Griffin. She was employed with the Orange, Chatham and Person County Health Services until leaving to take care of her family. She was happiest taking care of people. She was real, down-to-earth and non-judgmental. A person, who easily made others feel comfortable with her great sense of humor and warm-filled laughter. Patricia could do anything with her hands; cooking, sewing and decorating cakes were some favorite things she would do for family and friends. She was also known for her beautiful crafts, especially the holiday orbs and Christmas wreaths she made every year. She was a doting grandmother, loving mother and faithful wife. For 39 years, she celebrated her love with her husband, Walter.
