Victoria Gayle Noblet “Vickie” Griffith

December 15, 1952 ‒ May 13, 2017

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Not one to take this lightly Vickie made sure to take care of those in need around her. “Mama G” took many under her wing who had no one else, showing them God’s love.

Victoria Gayle Noblet “Vickie” Griffith went home to be with the Lord Saturday May 13, 2017 from the Cleveland Clinic. She was 64.

She was born December 15, 1952 to parents Carl H. & Patricia A. (Vanderbilt) Noblet in Mansfield. Vickie graduated from Lexington High School with the class of 1971.

On April 7, 1972, she married Jerry Griffith and they shared 45 wonderful years of marriage together.

Vickie took on the task of being the “Queen Bee”. She made sure everything in the house ran smoothly. She worked short stints with different companies but she always came back to what she was good at, being a home-maker.

Vickie was a faithful member of Fusion Ministries taking pleasure in leading the Red Ribbon Sisters. She enjoyed decorating her house inside and out. She loved to garden her favorite plants including Hostas and Impatiens. Her favorite place to be was sitting out in the back yard among the ponds and waterfalls, her oasis many people called a “Little Kingwood”.

She is survived by husband Jerry R. Griffith; children Carla L. (Robert) Pasheilich (grandchildren Brilynn L. Baugh & Reghan E. Pasheilich), Dustin R. Griffith and Mallorie L. Griffith; father Carl H. Noblet; siblings Melissa L. (James M.) Streib, Cynthia J. (Craig W.) Cooper and C. Bradly (Jane) Noblet; mother-in-law Helen M. Griffith; sister-in-laws Trudy A. (Dennis) O’Brien and Beverly G. Hendricks as well as numerous extended family.

She was preceded in death by her mother Patricia A. Noblet and father-in-law Earl R. Griffith brother-in-law Ross Hendricks.

The Griffith family will receive friends Friday, May 19 from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home.

  • My sympathies and prayers for strength, love, & support to the Griffin & Noblet family. I am so very sorry for your loss.

  • Vickie would oftentimes offer apology for possibly overstepping bounds or interfering with someone else’ children. But an apology was never warranted because it was her “gift” to touch the lives of the young people around her and it was a gift where she gave her whole heart and a gift that she used very well. Thank you Vickie for loving my boys and reaching out to each one of them to help them find themselves and find their way to our Lord Jesus Christ! Rest in peace Victoria…enjoy your rewards. Sincerely, your friend, Linda Morris

  • Aunt Vickie was the most selfless person I ever met in my life. She ment so much to so many people, I have so many fond memories of her, alot of those times were spent sitting at her kitchen table listing to her advice on subjects or listing to a funny story. Such a remarkable woman. Thank you for being a part of my life over the last 19 years. Prayers to Carla, Dustin, Mal and Jerry.

Tonya Spillman and Desiree Spillman May god bless her and i know she is decorating the heavens.

  • Mrs. Vicki,
    I must say, that you were one of the nicest people that I ever met. The first time that I met you, we quite literally talked for hours, and it seemed as though I had known you all of my life. You had that knack for making people feel comfortable and welcomed in you presence. I will miss your beautiful smile and your stylish flare! You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten! R.I.H.

  • I loved Vickie so much. She was my rock at times. Through her bible study classes i have learned so much. I could sit and listen to her for hours. Such a wonderful woman of God. She will be missed by all that knew her.
    I will see you again one day. Fly high my beautiful friend. Gone but never forgotten. I love my dear friend.

  • This is very hard for me to write, as I recall meeting vicki when I first met my husband aaron back in 1998, and then marrying into this amazing family, and having the honor and pleasure of meeting vicki at my wedding, she was just the most sweetest kindest lady I have ever met, sharing how much she loved my grandmother she sat with at our wedding, and in the years after so proud of me for becoming a christ follower, it was her love and devotion to teaching me about the love for jesus christ, that made me love her more and more, and so will miss her terribly, but very happy she is no longer having to be in hospitals or in pain, and I love her family as my own, carla, rob, mal, dustin, jerry and everyone else , prayers for healing in this very difficult time, aaron and I love u all, god bless, huggs

  • So sorry to hear about your Mom.
    She was a lovely lady.
    Shirley Smith (Carla and Mallorie`s first grade teacher)

  • To all the family members of Vickie,
    Many fond memories flood my heart when thinking about your loved one. Vickie and I were cousin buds when we were very young. We played for hours on end at our home or hers. Her mother, Aunt Pat, would always invite me to stay over night. Uncle Carl probably considered me an extra mouth to feed! I received many articles of clothing from Vickie, that she would grow out of,saving my parents a lot of money. We also played together at the Vanderbilt farm. We would make mud pies, take turns playing doctor and patient, pretend we had a house full of children. We had lots of fun!
    My condolence to all of you. Vickie will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

    As I read each condolence before this one, a common thread was there of Vickie’s witness of Jesus Christ in her life and the love she shared in her heart. What a dear friend and family member we all have and still do in Jesus Christ and his followers.

  • May God be with the family in this time of great sorrow. Vicky was a special lady who loved the Lord and family. She will be deeply missed.

  • Going back to our childhood days with memories of Vickie as my cousin buddy, is fun but also sad. We would spend the night at each other’s homes and just have lots of fun.
    We pretended having our own homes, baked mud pies at the Vanderbilt farm, and even pretended we were doctors and patients. As we grew up we had our own homes, baked real pies, and would have to see a doctor for real. I admired how beautiful Vickie would always look and will miss seeing her. May all of you who knew her receive comfort by knowing Vickie is with Jesus Christ. May the love she shared with so many go on to be shared with many more. In sympathy and love, Paula ( Walter) Clagg

  • I attended Vickies church for a short time. She was so welcoming and sweet to my family and I. I always enjoyed seeing her. I always admired how fashionable she looked. She was so genuine in her love for God and his people it was very inspiring for me personally. I had the opportuniry to visit Vickies home during a church function. I was amazed and impressed at the beauty of her backyard. It was an uplifting experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. There was something about Vickie that drew me to her I can’t explain it, I wish I had followed that feeling. I just know she is a special bright soul that touched my life and I am honored to have briefly known her. Deepest sympathy to her family. God bless

  • God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. (I Peter 4:10) LB

    This was a life message, that she lived and spoke in lives often…Our family is praying for all of you as well, we know your pain and loss is deep, we are not the only ones who have suffered a loss. (Brother-in-law, and pastor) Vickie was my powerful prayer warrior through my entire ministry as a pastor…missed beyond words!

  • I met Vicki many years ago as a young teenage girl whom had just recently lost my mother. She brought so much joy and laughter into our lives, that includes my other family members also. Vicki was our 4-H Advisor in a horse club, I cannot tell you the fun we had with Vicki. She brought joy to our life when we were suffering. I know Vicki is rejoicing with Jesus and bringing a smile to so many people.
    Vicki was one of a kind, I loved her in a very special way.
    May you all be comforted at this time, I am so sorry for all of you. I know that she was so loved by so many.
    What a legacy she has left behind, if we could all love as Vicki did without judgment this world would be a much better place.
    Love you Vicki

  • As a classmate, I loved her. Didn’t know her well but felt akin and comfortable whenever in her presence. Nothing gives us sweeter pleasure than knowing this is not the end….not for Vickie or me or anyone who chooses to follow Christ. We walk to His cadence right from this realm into heaven for an exquisite life of love everlasting. Vickie’s new home is a wonderful place where she’s dancing and laughing in beautiful gardens and waterfalls unimaginable.

    My deepest sincere sympathy to all those she loved and to the many who loved her. May God’s great comfort and promise be yours.

  • I have known Vickie since the 60’s/ Whether showing a horse, driving a dump truck, comforting a friend or flat on her back in the hospital Vickie was never too busy or tired or sick to be concerned for others. We shared many laughs and serious talks over the years. I am honored to have called you friend. May you rest in the arms of the Lord healthy and pain free You will be an intervening Angel in your new Heavenly Home !
    Jerry , we went to North Central together in 74-76. I am so sorry for your loss . May God provide comfort to you, the children and Vickie’s family God Bless !!! HUGS!!

    To all the family members who said goodbye: Vickie was an incredible woman. She is responsible for leading me to the Lord. I loved listening to her; she had great knowledge and wisdom; was loving & kind yet firm in her beliefs and not afraid to let you know it! This woman knew me before I even knew me. I will miss her as I’m sure you will all miss her; but we believers will see her again! Praises to the one who called her “home”.

  • Mallorie, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I remember how she supported you during your basketball years at Lexington. Always there; always cheering.
    Will be praying for you and your family.

    To all of Vickies family, our most sincere sympathy. Vickie and I and Joe met way back showing horses together with Jim and Missy and Pat and Carl. You know you have met very special people when you remember them as if it was yesterday! Vickie was truly that person who shared her friendship immediately and it felt as if you had known her for years. Many years of laughter and friendship followed those beginning years.
    I am so sorry to learn of Vickies passing from this life but I know she is now with our heavenly Father. May God smiles as he welcomes her home and send his healing to her family and families left behind here on earth. God’s comfort to you all.
