Obituaries » Catherine S. Griffin

Catherine Scoblick Griffin, 92, of Warrenton, passed peacefully July 27, 2019, at Heritage Village in Gainesville. 

She was born February 19, 1927, in Scranton, Pa., to the late John and Filomena Scoblick.

Catherine graduated from The College of New Rochelle and shortly thereafter met and married her husband, Alfred Charles Griffin, upon his graduation from West Point Military Academy. After his service in the military, they settled down in Arlington and her husband graduated from Georgetown University School of Dentistry.

Catherine and her devoted husband raised their four children in Falls Church. Catherine was very involved with her church as well as Catholic Charities and Meals on Wheels. She went on to get her real estate license and worked in the field for many years.

After her husband passed away in 1989, Catherine made it her mission to establish the Arlington Healing Ministry, along with Father Tuck Grinnell and countless other volunteers. The ministry has helped those in need for more than 29 years. Catherine served as administrator of the ministry for more than 25 years. She lived a life of selflessness and service.

Catherine is survived by three children, Karen Flikeid and her husband Robert of Warrenton, Dr. Alfred C. Griffin Jr. of Marshall and Dr. William T. Griffin and his wife Linda of Newport News; nine grandchildren, Dr. Alfred C. Griffin III, Robert C. Griffin, Sallie Griffin Salley, Katie Griffin, Clark William Thomas Griffin, Christian Jarrell Griffin, Connor Griffin, Caroline Grace Flikeid and Davis Christian Flikeid, and three great grandchildren, Barrett, Lucy and Tristan.

In addition to her parents, Mrs. Griffin was preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Alfred C. Griffin Sr.; a son, Christian J. Griffin, and four siblings.

A mass of Christian burial will be offered at 6:30 p.m. Monday, August 5, at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Warrenton. She will be interred with her husband at Arlington National Cemetery on a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Arlington Healing Ministry, 42259 Fording Branch Court, Leesburg, Va. 20176.
