Kelli Sue Griffin, age 38, passed away on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero. She was born May 28, 1978, in Marrero, to Gary and Patricia (Plaisance) Griffin. She was a 2005 graduate of Louisiana Technical College and a self-taught artist. She worked as an Administrative Assistant with West Jefferson Industrial Medicine, where her coworkers fell in love with her. Kelli's many passions included painting, sculpture, and arts and crafts. Her greatest strength was her determination to finish whatever she set out to do, no matter how hard the task. Her biggest flaw was not knowing just how special and irreplaceable she was. She is survived by her mother, Patricia; her sisters, Tammy Gegenheimer and Karen Williams; her two brothers in-law Larry Gegenheimer, Jr. and Darrin Williams; her nephew Gary Lapoint; her niece Hannah Gegenheimer; her aunts Elda Olsen, Barbra Houillon, Rosemary Plaisance, Linda Plaisance and Sally Griffin; her uncles Melvin Plaisance, Jr., Julian Plaisance and Bryan Griffin; and many cousins. A visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM for family, and 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM for friends at MOTHE FUNERAL HOME, 2100 Westbank Expressway, Harvey. Visitation will be followed by a memorial service in the chapel at 11:00 AM. DO NOT SEND FLOWERS. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Kelli's name to the charity of your choice.
