MIX 95.1 Rick & Lisa's Grandma

Grandma Mabel Griffith passed away on Sunday September 25, 2011

This week, some sad news: “Grandma”, 102 year-old Mabel Griffith of Fannettsburg, PA passed away in her sleep Sunday after a brief illness. Grandma was our Friday 8AM guest for over a decade. Our association with her began while having an on-air discussion about ironing. Her granddaughter called to tell us her then 80-something grandmother still ironed underwear. We called “Grandma” and the relationship began. Several years later, we called her to get her picks for the week’s high school football games. Soon after, she became a regular part of all our lives. Year after year, we celebrated her birthday in-studio and on-air, culminating last year with a limo ride from Phantom Shadow and being featured on ABC-27’s “Out and About” with Chuck Rhoads.
