Anna Ruth Griffin, 45 years old, was called home to be with our Lord on November 24, 2020 at her home
in Bernville Pennsylvania with family by her bedside. Anna was a ‘fighter’ right up until she crossed from
her time body to her eternal body. She never backed down from any battle. Her battle with cancer was
no different. Her life touched so many including the doctors and nurses that got to know her during her
bout with cancer for the past 5 years. Her strength and Spirit was infectious to all. She was truly a gift of
Anna Ruth Griffin was born in North Plainfield New Jersey, April 15, 1975 survived by parents, John
Edward Griffin and Patricia Ann Griffin from Basking Ridge New Jersey. She is also survived by her
precious daughter Naomi Ruth Griffin. In addition to her parents and daughter, she is survived by her
siblings, John William and wife Christine Griffin, Amy Hope and husband Frank Cronkhite, and Joseph
David and wife Patty Griffin. Her nephews and nieces include, Kymberlie Autumn, Stephanie Marie, Zoe
Elaina, John Michael, Noah Patrick, Micah Paul, Mia Yoshiko, and Eli Samuel.
Anna Ruth graduated from Pine Bush High School, New York. She spent most of her career as a certified
professional coder with Change Healthcare for more than 20 years. Anna loved outdoor adventures,
traveling the world, hiking, motorsports, and camping. Some of the places Anna loved to talk about was
her travels with Mom and Amy to Paris and the east cost of the U.S.. She spoke a lot about Banff,
Canada. She traveled there with her dear friend Ashley Peters after she defeated cancer the first time.
She described Banff, Canada as being in likeness to Heaven on earth. Her connection with nature was
passionate and she loved to see animals in their environment. She was never happy when her brother
Johnny would talk of his hunting exploits and she would always tell him to ‘leave the animals alone’!
Anna loved camping on the beach and was always up for dropping everything to go to the New Jersey
shore on any given weekend, year round.
Anna Ruth was such a loving and caring person. Her daughter Naomi was her life. She made sure to give
her the love, care, and help she always needed. When it came to family, she would stop at nothing to be
there for them. When we had parties and family get togethers, she was our ‘go-to’ person, because she
had the best and most spontaneous ideas. Whenever she would spend time with her nephews and
nieces, she would make it the most memorable and fun time ever. The countless bonfires, fourwheeling, beach trips, pool parties, boating on the lake, and family game nights, were some of the best
memories with Anna.
Anna had a pure heart. You never knew her friends from her enemies. We can all testify as close family
members, that she was the best of all of us. She always accentuated the positive. Even while battling
cancer, she would always speak about God’s Word and His promises for her and her family. She said
when she was restored back to Lord 5 years ago, her prayer to God was, ‘please use my life to save my
family and bless others’. Just recently, she had a supernatural experience which she shared with the
church on how God spoke to her and gave her a revelation of who she was, that she is a daughter of the King. We take comfort knowing that she is dancing in the fields of Glory completely made whole, for she
has passed from death unto Life.
She will be sorely missed. We Love you Anna Ruth Griffin.
