Obituary of Sarah Griffin

ATTEA GRIFFIN - Sarah
It is with deep sadness that the family of Sarah Attea Griffin announces her
passing after a valiant and courageous fight with cancer. Sarah went peacefully
to be with the Lord on November 4, 2018, at the age of 41. Sarah was
born November 11, 1976 in Buffalo, NY and was a graduate of Williamsville
South High School and the University of Tennessee at Martin. Sarah loved
horses and Corgis and was a true cowgirl. Her passion in life was barrel
racing, winning multiple WPRA District Barrel Racing Championships. Sarah
was a bright light and friend to all who knew her. She will be remembered for
her remarkable friendships, extreme kindness and generosity, huge bright
beautiful smile, and infectious laugh. Sarah will be forever loved and
cherished by her husband and best friend, Thomas Griffin, her mother,
Diane Attea and husband Brian Thorn, and her father Elias Attea. She will
also be lovingly remembered by her sister Julie Attea-Garst and husband
Zach, sister Rose Attea, and brother Elias Attea. Sarah will be profoundly
missed by her large extended family, dear friends, and her in-laws Michael
and Susanne Griffin. Sarah’s talents as a championship barrel racer will
not be forgotten by those who love her and by the RODEO COMMUNITY.
