Elizabeth Griffel Obituary - Hill Funeral Home


A memorial service will be announced at a later date.

Mrs. Griffel was instrumental in hiring me as a teacher at Fairfield Middle School over twenty years ago. I am still in the district. She was an outstanding Principal that cared for her employees and students as well. She was suave and tactful handling situations and giving advice. She was always pleasant and very friendly each time we had an interaction. Mrs. Griffel was a favorite Principal of mine. I'm sorry for the loss to this family.

Obituary for Elizabeth Griffel

Elizabeth Griffel 1944-2023

Elizabeth Griffel

12/10/1944 - 03/23/2023

Liz N Griffel, born in Hazard, Kentucky, moved to Hamilton with her parents and two sisters. She graduated from Fairfield High School, Miami University, and Xavier University. She was both a teacher and principal for the Fairfield City Schools.

She leaves behind a husband of fifty-seven years, a daughter, three grandchildren, many cousins, nieces and nephews, and countless friends and colleagues.

She loved to read, travel, work in her garden, and be with her many friends. But her real joy was being with David, Murphy, and Paige, her grandchildren. She will be missed by everyone who worked, worshipped, or socialized with her. The world was a better place because of her. A memorial service will be announced later. In lieu of flowers please donate in her memory to a charity of your choice.
