Montine Young Griffin

January 12, 1937 ~ January 11, 2022 (age 84)


Mrs. Montine Young Griffin, 84, passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at home surrounded by family. Montine was a lifelong member of South Fork Church of Christ in Winston-Salem. She retired from North Carolina Baptist Hospital after 29 years of caring for others. Her entire nursing career was in the intensive care unit at Baptist. She was hired for this position straight from college graduation. She gained membership to the “Centurian” Club and was very proud to have found her calling in such an intense, fast paced, forward looking and caring atmosphere. Patience and empathy were characteristics she leaned upon throughout her life in caring for both her family and patients. She is preceded in death by her father and mother, Howard and Pearl Young; her loving husband of 60 years, Richard Allen “Dick” Griffin; and her sister, Louis Holcomb. Outside of work she was a gifted gardening enthusiast, a passion she inherited from her mother. Montine created a loving home where she and Dick raised 3 daughters, Velda Nelson, Paige Kuzelka, and Lane Griffin. She is survived by a brother, Lance Young of South Carolina; all 3 daughters; 7 grandchildren, being especially close with her grandsons, Travis and Nick Poplin of Winston-Salem; and 12 great-grandchildren. A graveside service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at Forsyth Memorial Park.
