NORTHPORT | Shirley Watts Griffin, age 63 of Northport, went to join her husband of 37 years in Heaven on May 25, 2015, at Hospice of West Alabama. Services will be 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at Sunset Funeral Home with Dr. John Kearns officiating. Burial will follow in Sunset Memorial Park with Sunset Funeral Home, a Dignity Memorial Provider directing. Visitation will be Tuesday, May 26, 2015, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home.

Shirley was preceded in death by her loving husband, Amon Lee Griffin; her parents, Johnny and Dessie Watts; brothers, Johnny (Jr) Watts, Billy Watts and Donnie Watts.

Survivors include her daughters, Pamela Griffin-Jones (Bobby) and Tammy Griffin; grandson, Jason Williams (Candia) and Danny Spires; granddaughters, Brittany Spires, Kaycee Williams (Terrance), Katie Jones (Cameron, Felicia Jones (Daniel), Stephanie Jones and April Jones; brothers, Eugene Watts, Charles Watts (Cheryl) and Bobby Watts (Charlene); sisters, Virgie Brown (Grover – deceased), Violet Winkles (Willie-deceased), Betty Tidmore (Kenny), and Linda Tidmore (Rick); and two great-grandchildren, Jason Skylen Williams and Hazlee Sue Williams, plus one more expected in January 2016.

Shirley was an amazing woman with a strong Christian faith. Her husband was her high school sweetheart, her best friend and her closest confidant. Shirley enjoyed spending time with her daughters and took every chance to spoil her grandchildren that she could possibly get. After Amon died, Shirley decided it was time to develop her social skills and became a significant part of groups such as the Bunco Hotties, TCHS 1970 classmates, a widow's group and most importantly the Ladies' Bible Study Groups at Christ Harbor United Methodist Church. Through these groups she developed several strong life-long friendships. Pallbearers will be Johnny Griffin, Scott Williams, Daniel "Ziggy" Spires, Toby Tidmore, Bruce Tidmore, Scott Watts, Alan Watts, RC Carr, Kris Carr, Zachary Carr and Eric Hamilton.

The family would like to express special thanks to the staff of Hospice of West Alabama and Drs.' and nurse's staff at Cancer Care Center of Tuscaloosa for all of the special care they provided. Memorial donations may be made to Christ Harbor United Methodist Church or Hospice of West Alabama.
