Louise Glover Griffith of Olive Hill, Kentucky, entered into God’s kingdom on June 13, 2022, after a short stay at the Community Hospice Care Center in Ashland, Kentucky. Her family and friends were blessed to have 86 years with her. She was married to William R. Griffith for 56 years and was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
Louise’s life was filled with service to others, and all of us who were blessed to be touched by her understand that her existence and the imprint she left on our hearts exceeds what can be measured. One of Louise’s greatest talents was raising children. She loved and adored her only child, Tom. She often recounted his teenage years jokingly and blamed them on her gray hair, but always smiled and spoke with love and adoration when she reminisced of his childhood and their special relationship as adults. Much excitement and joy came into her life nearly 24 years ago when her only granddaughter, Madison, was born. Countless hours of playing outside, dollhouse play, taking walks through the neighborhood, attending and taking part in special events and always just being there for a phone call when they just chatted about everything and nothing. Bill says he always knew when she was talking to Madison on the phone because she laughed so much and her mood was lifted just from talking with her. Louise was a master of baking and dessert-making. She enjoyed making red velvet cakes for Tom’s birthday every year, coconut cream pie for Trish and her blueberry pie for Madison and so much more! She was an amazing caretaker for her parents, brothers and sister that passed before her and did so with a free heart and willingness to just be there for them. She also shared a special relationship with her mother-in-law, Celia Griffith, before her passing. Louise was an early riser and would drink her morning coffee, have her house cleaned, talk to her sisters, Bonnie and Mae on the phone and be ready to move on to the next thing that day before noon. Not a day went by when Louise didn’t talk about how much her family meant to her.
In addition to her parents, Louise was preceded in death by five brothers, Roy Glover (Doris) of Grayson, Kentucky; Jesse and Wiley Glover, both of Olive Hill; Chalmer Glover of Bardstown, Kentucky; infant brother, Jimmy; one sister, Betty Tobin (Bob) of Silver Springs, Maryland, and brother-in-law, Roy Suttles of New Carlisle, Ohio; one sister-in-law, Ella Ann Glover; brother-in-law, Malcom Bush and two nephews, Jeff and Kelly Glover of Olive Hill, Kentucky.
Those left to cherish Louise’s memory include her husband, William R. Griffith of Olive Hill, KY; one son, Floyd Thomas Carroll (Trisha) of Grayson, KY; a granddaughter, Madison Carroll (Matthew Kibbey) of Carter City, Kentucky; three sisters, Bonnie Wilburn (James) of Grayson, KY; Margaret Cardy (Frank) of Sliver Springs, Maryland, and Ina Mae Suttles of New Carlisle, Ohio; one brother, Bill Glover (Debbie) of Mt. Washington, Kentucky; one sister-in-law, Linda Glover of Olive Hill and many nieces, nephews and cherished friends who loved and adored her.
