Mrs. Susan Munro Griffith, of Riverview Road, Advance, died on Wednesday, July 21, 2021.

She was born on Sept. 3, 1949 in Dubois, Pa.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Lucille Munro; and her brother, Dr. James Munro.

Survivors: her husband of 46 years, Max; her brother, the Rev. David Munro and wife Leslie of Milton, Del.; sister-in-law, Reva Munro of Tampa, Fla.; son, Jeffery and wife Tabitha and their 3 daughters of Safety Harbor, Fla.; and daughter, Hollie and husband Jeremy and their daughter and son of Advance.

She will be remembered for her outgoing and joyful spirit, hearty laugh, and enthusiastic love and support of her children whose exemplary lives brought her joy. She loved and adored her grandchildren, Maddie, Isla, Reese, Harper and Huck. She was the ideal and complementary help mate for her husband.

She was a longtime member of Gospel Light Baptist Church in Walkertown. She was an elementary school teacher for 29 years. She and Max actively served in one of the church’s bus ministry routes for 20 years. They weekly brought dozens of children and adults to church who would have had no other way to attend regularly. Her most endearing quality was her devotion to Christ and her earnest desire was to see those who did not know the Savior come to saving faith in Christ. She demonstrated compassion for those who were struggling under life’s burdens. She was a warm-hearted listener and encouragement to those in need.

Since coming to know Christ at 17, she served the Lord throughout her life out of appreciation for what Christ had done for her when He saved her from her sins.

A funeral service will be conducted at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 27 in the main auditorium at Gospel Light Baptist Church, 890 Walkertown-Guthrie Road, Winston-Salem. Burial will follow in Carolina Biblical Gardens in Jamestown. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at 12:30 p.m.
