B. Shyrrell Griffin

B. Shyrrell GriffinB. Shyrrell Griffin, 73, returned to her heavenly home and was reunited with the love of her life, Larry, on Oct. 29, 2018, in Fresno after her battle with cancer. Her devotion and love for her family and firm belief in God guided her throughout her illness as well as her entire life.

Shyrrell is survived by her children, Erick Griffin (Shannon) and Sarah Schafer (Bill); grandchildren Nehemiah, Hannah and Rachel; sister Clelta Renee Voss (Ken); and numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws whom she loved dearly.

Her integrity and dedication to the task at hand were on display daily in her 30-plus-year professional career as a business finance manager at the Naval Weapons Center. She loved to travel and never passed on an opportunity to getaway and cruising with her family was her favorite. Her kindness and generosity will be remembered by all who crossed her path; whether it was a good morning while walking down the hall at Michelson Lab or simply sharing time with somebody who needed a kind ear.

She will be remembered not only as a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt but also as an amazing friend to all who knew her. We are all better people because of her.

Services for Shyrrell were held Nov. 7. The Rev. Charles Griffin officiated. In lieu of flowers the family suggests that donations be made to Shyrrell’s favorite charity St. Jude Children’s Hospital, stjude.org.
