Gloria Elaine Lassen Griggs

March 7, 1926 - August 28, 2017


Our short, fun loving, feisty mother, grandmother, aunt and friend returned home to her Father in Heaven and loving family whom patiently have been waiting for her on August 28, 2017, at the age of 91. Gloria was born on March 7, 1926, to Olaf and Fanny Lassen in Ogden, Utah. She graduated from Ogden High School and married Keith Griggs.

She completed her time here on Earth by raising her children, loving her grandchildren, and loving those that crossed her path. She was a member of the LDS church. She taught in the Primary and relief society for many years.

Gloria enjoyed golf, bowling, and traveling with her siblings across the Country. She worked at Hill Air Force Base for 23 years and Jensen Floral. Her favorite thing to do was go to Hebgen Lake to camp with her family in the summertime. She is remembered for her positive outlook on life and keeping our family close. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

Gloria is survived by her daughter, Judy Metzger; three sons, Jeff Griggs, Dennis (Shelley) Griggs, and Dave (Brenda) Griggs; 13 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and two great great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her sister, Barbra (John) Bingham; her brother, Jerry Lassen; and her parents.

My mom (Beryl Mansfield) was friends with Gloria during my youth and I knew Jeff and Dennis as we were friends in school. We are sorry to hear of her passing and send thoughts at this time of sadness.

I express my condolences to Gloria's family and I'm sorry I could not attend her funeral. I am Deanna Jensen, wife of Paul B. Jensen. Paul was Bernard Jensen's son and Fanny was Bernie's brother. I truly loved Fanny and she had a great sense of humor which she passed on to Gloria. I'm sure your family has wonderful memories of Gloria and memories are the legacy of love. Hold on to those memories, and let them guide you during this time of sadness. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Deanna Jensen

I am so sorry for your loss. May fond memories of Gloria bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
