Margaret Mary Elizabeth Griffin, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend lost her battle with cancer on Thursday, March 24, 2022 surrounded by family. She was 80 years old. Born October 15, 1941 in Baltimore, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Redel and Mary Schisler Redel. Margaret married William A. Griffin in 1967, living the past 46 years in the beautiful hills of Carroll County.
When Margaret wasn’t inside reading, she loved spending time outdoors; watching the birds flock to their feeders, riding her John Deer tractor with the wind in her hair, especially when the roses and honeysuckle were in bloom. She retired from Western Maryland College after 25 years of service as an administrative assistant. Margaret was a devout Catholic and parishioner of St. John Catholic Church and absolutely cherished being a “Mom-Mom” to her three grandchildren.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children Cheryl Griffin of Baltimore and James Griffin and wife Bridget of Taneytown; brother Michael Redel and wife Kathy of Taneytown; grandchildren Christian, Raeghan, Lillian Griffin of Taneytown; lifelong friends Sandy Blake and husband Jack of Ellicott City, Lew and Ann Langkam of Westminster.
She was predeceased by her brother Joseph John Redel and sister Marie Charles.
