Bonnie Lee (Amos) Griffith
Bonnie Lee (Amos) Griffith, 82, of Kanawha Trail died Thursday October 5, 2023. Mrs. Griffith was born July 24, 1941, in Rock Camp, West Virginia, the daughter of the late Lewis Claude Amos Sr. and the late Mildred Lucille (Pyne) Amos. She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years Harold Ephraim Griffith, a brother Lewis Amos Jr. and a sister Gay Howard. She retired from The Greenbrier Clinic in White Sulphur Springs after 34 years. She was a member of Calvary Christian Church in Covington. Family meant the world to Bonnie, and her three grandsons were the center of her world. Nothing would light her face up like the sound or sight of Christopher, Erik or Mason. She was so proud of all three of them. They would never leave her house hungry or without lots of hugs. In the neighborhood, Bonnie was well known for tirelessly working to keep the lawn looking spectacular. She could be seen weekly in the summer riding her lawn mower in her big straw hat and long sleeves or pushing the mower in the front yard. Bonnie was always kind to her family and neighbors, well known for her sharing and giving nature.
She is survived by a daughter Patty (Darren) Honaker of Clifton Forge, three grandsons: Christopher Honaker ( Miki Bayar) of Fairfax, Erik Honaker of Blacksburg and Mason Honaker of Blacksburg, a sister-in-law Reta Amos of Lindside WV, a brother Roscoe Amos (Drema) of Rock Camp, WV, a brother Arnold Amos (Barbara) of Peterstown, WV, a brother Roger Amos (Pat) of Covington and a sister Linda Wilson (the late Dale Wilson) of Union, WV and a large number of beloved nieces of nephews.
The funeral service was held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, October 7, 2023, in the Chapel of Arritt Funeral Home with the Rev Mike Warren officiating. Interment was at the Swoope Cemetery at Lindside, WV. The family received friends Friday, October 6 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. at Arritt Funeral Home. The family suggests that memorial donations in Mrs. Griffiths name be made to Calvary Christian Church, 1329 Pond Ave, Covington VA 24426.
