      Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Dugger Ewing Funeral Home, 111 Luick's Lane South in Belmond, and one hour prior to services at the church on Tuesday.

      Irma E. Griffiths was born on Aug. 15, 1916, the daughter of Harry J. and Edna L. Krebill, in Donnellson. After graduating from Donnellson High School, she attended Parsons College in Fairfield, and the Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls. Irma then taught in country schools.

      On June 10, 1939, she was united in marriage to Clement W. Griffiths in Donnellson. The couple made their home in Fairfield, where they were blessed with a daughter, Dona.

      While Clem served in the military, Irma worked at Schaefer Pen Company in Fort Madison. With Clem's return, the family moved to Marshalltown and was blessed with a son, Denis. The family then lived in South Dakota and Minnesota for a time be-fore moving to Indianola in 1951.

      Irma devoted her life to her family and church. She worked in various capacities at the Indianola elementary and high schools. She also served as a teachers aid at Slinker Opportunity School in Des Moines. Often Irma could be found at the First United Methodist Church doing volunteer work or participating with the Women's Society and Rebecca's Circle.

      In 1978, the Indianola Business Professional Women named Irma "Woman of the Year." She moved to Belmond in 1995, and then to the Belmond Health Care Center in 1998.

      Irma's hobbies included sewing, crocheting, gardening, walking and word jumbles. She loved children and often visited and babysat her grandchildren. To all that knew Irma, she was a devoted, sweet, caring and giving person.

      Irma is survived by her daughter, Dona Cleveland, of Belmond; son, Denis and his wife, Linda, of Braselton, Ga.; five grandchildren: Daniel and his wife, Jodie, David and his wife, Terra, Dana and his wife, Laurie, John and Jane; six great-grandchildren, Alex, Sean, Kellen, Conner, Langley, and Max; sister, Wilma Bryant and her husband, Ernest, of Indianola; sister-in-law, Leotta Griffiths, of Albia; nieces, Judith Schneller and her husband, John, and Sandra McJimsey and her husband, George; and their children and families.

      Irma is preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and her son-in-law, Don Cleveland.

      In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials be made to the First United Methodist Church in Indianola, or Belmond Health Care Center in Belmond.
