In memory of
Daphne Griffith
DAPHNE GRIFFITH Daphne, the prayer warrior, would like to let you know that her work here is done and she has gone home to be with her Heavenly Father. Daphne was born in Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara, Guyana South America on April 4 th , 1937 to the late Iris and Hubert Philander. Daphne was the eldest of eight siblings: John, Harry, Ewart, Gloria, Eglan, Irma and Philip. Daphne is now reunited with her mother, father and siblings who preceded her in death along with her Heavenly Father. Throughout Daphne’s life her faith in God was very strong and unshakable. She loved the Lord and was a faithful servant. Daphne was very charitable and always welcomed others with a warm smile. She was kind, caring and a hard working person who took pride in what she set out to do. Daphne was even-tempered and always did her best to motivate and uplift the people in her life. She was known for being outspoken; however, she also set the example on how to love and care for others no matter their faults. Daphne’s career in nursing spanned over 33 years. She enjoyed caring for the sick and elderly. In the late 1960’s Daphne left Guyana and moved to the United States in order to pursue a nursing career in addition to creating a better life for herself and her children. In 1975 she return to Guyana and brought her four children back with her to the United States (New York). Shortly after, she left New York and moved to Philadelphia where she continued her nursing career. Daphne is survived by her four children: Leon, Lionel, Glenda and Kent. She is also survived by her brother Eglan, sister Gloria, and grandchildren: Evita, Olayinka, Leah, Jasmine, Thomas, Moses (deceased), Elizabeth, Ruthie and a host of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.   Order of Service    Prayer of Comfort                          Scripture Readings Old Testament - New Testament -    Solo           "Great Is Thy Faithfulness"    Dawn Ross                                          Acknowledgements and Resolutions Remarks         Selection   I'm Going Home On The Morning Train" Obituary        Leah Griffith Selection           "Precious Lord"                                                 Eulogy                                      Committal & Benediction   John 14:1-3   Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God,                         believe also in Me.   In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were  not so, I would told you.  I go to prepare a place                             for you.    And If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come  again and receive you to Myself, that where I am you                           may be also
