Dollie Belle Griffith


Dollie Belle Davis Griffith, 89, a resident of Bradley County, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, in a Chattanooga health care facility, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

She was born June 26, 1928, in Alamo, Wheeler, Ga., and was the daughter of the late Jessie (May Belle) Brown Davis and Jackson (Jack) Millard Davis. She was also preceded in death by her beloved husband of 30 years, Robert Griffith; and her six brothers: Calvin Leon (C. L.), Claude, Gilbert, Virgil, Roger and Roy Davis.

She was a long-standing member of Union Grove Church of Christ.

She was a hard worker until the end. From a young age, she worked on farmland, and later she was sewing garments for mills in several states. She loved writing and had many articles and stories published in the Cleveland Daily Banner and other small publications.

She also enjoyed writing poetry, but most of all she loved to write and receive hand-written letters from family, friends and pen pals across the country. She also loved taking pictures and was rarely seen without her camera. She took great joy in sharing the photos of nature she took.

She will be greatly missed by all her many nieces, nephews and friends. We all love you, Aunt Dollie!

A Remembrance of Life graveside service and interment will be conducted on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, at 11:30 a.m., at Union Grove Church of Christ.

Jim Rush Funeral and Cremation Services Wildwood Chapel has charge of the arrangements.
