MRS. JENNIE GRIFFIN, 97, 409 North Fourth Street, a prominent Niles woman and widow of E.C. Griffin, died at 2 a.m. today at Pawating Hospital after an illness of only a few hours.

She was born in Niles on Oct. 13, 1858, the daughter of David O. and Clarissa Hurd Woodruff. The Griffin, Woodruff and Hurd families were pioneer residents of Niles. Her husband operated a drug store in Niles for many years.

She leaves one daughter, Miss Jeanne Griffin and a son-in-law Otto W. Haisley of Ann Arbor [illegible]. Her daughter, Harriet Griffin Haisley, preceded her in death in January of 1834.

The funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Monday in Trinity Episcopal Church with the Rev. John G. Carleton officiating. Memorials to her church or to Pawating Hospital, instead of flowers, are requested. Burial will be in Silverbrook Cemetery.
