Griffith, Linda Lou (Lennox)

-

Linda Lou Lennox Griffith, of Tulsa, OK and Dallas, TX, passed away on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Linda’s love and inclusion of all the people she knew led her through a life filled with love, laughter, music and friends.

She was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Jim and Evelyn Lennox on November 21, 1954. 

Linda always had an “open door policy” and had a way about her that made people feel safe and cared for. She loved cooking and feeding people wether it was friends and family or someone in need. Linda brought love, light and joy to everyone she came in contact with.  She always put the needs of others in front of her own. Her generous spirit led her to volunteer at St. Peters Episcopal Church, she gave countless hours to her kids schools and their activities and finally the Dallas Resource Center and many others in-between. She never met a stranger and made life better for an untold number of people. Linda enjoyed gardening and you could often find her in one of her many hats that she was known for. She had many passions in life but her biggest was being Nana to her four grandchildren.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents Jim and Evelyn Lennox and her brother Thomas Bolerjack. She is survived by her two children, Jennifer Griffith (Tulsa, OK) and Sarah LaFavers (Portland, OR); son-in-law Todd LaFavers; grandchildren Freddie, Morgan, Wesley and Evelyn; siblings Morgan Lennox (wife Lorie) and Patti Cleewell (spouse Keith).  

Linda has found peace and her halo of light is now cast from Heaven.

Linda was a sweet soul with a heart of gold. She check on me after having spinal surgery and she make sure she brought me plenty of food to eat. She was always giving to others. She will be missed. Heaven has gained an angel.

Linda was a ball of fire. She was a family friend of my parents. I was sad to hear years ago she had breast cancer and moved to Dallas. This was around the time my mom went through so much and we almost lost her so we lost touch with Linda. She always brought out a relaxedness in my parents, they could be who they were with her and say anything around her. I remember her many tricks in the kitchen stretching a meal to feed a crowd. I will never forget her authenticity. Both our families went through too much those years we stopped breaking bread together. I was blessed to have spent time with this family. Good times were had by us all.

Met Linda many years ago when I was on a business trip to Dallas. We hit if off immediately.

I remember well another passion of hers…. sushi. And we spent many lunches near where she was living at the time eating sushi outdoors.

And I have fond memories of a trip where she and Cam met me in NOLA… I love the city… and so did she.

She will be missed.

My condolences to her children and grandchildren many of whom I heard much about. And to all the rest of the family.
