Lillian's Loving Lilies are walking in memory of Lillian Griffith of Lothian, MD who battled Alzheimer’s for the past decade. While the disease finally won on May 8, 2019, Lillian led a fulfilling life. Lillian was raised on a family farm in Calvert County and graduated second in her class from Calvert High School. She married Earl Griffith and they lived on his family farm in Lothian with her son, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. Lillian took pride in every aspect of her life. She was an employee of the Anne Arundel Soil Conservation District for 35 years, where she served as district director for many years and helped make a positive impact for Maryland farmers. She had a passion for conservation of natural resources and anyone who used the term "dirt" was quickly scolded; her motto was "it's not dirt, it's soil." She was an active member of the Maryland Farm Bureau and Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church. Lillian loved flower gardening (lilies were one of her favorites) and would spend hours perfecting her flowerbeds. She also enjoyed cooking, entertaining, and most importantly to our team captain, spending time with her family. There are so many lovely and endearing stories of Lillian to be told. Please join our team and walk with us to hear some of these stories direct from her family.
Together with the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, Lillian's family hopes to see the day when a lifesaving treatment is available.
