Mrs. Brittany Leanna McCormick Griffin, age 23 of Franklin, Georgia passed away on Wednesday evening, May 2, 2012 from the results of a four-wheel accident.

Funeral services for Mrs. Griffin were held Monday, May 7, 2012, at 2:00 P.M. from the Victory Road Baptist Church in Bowdon, Georgia with the Reverends Van Brown, Lynn Janney, and Wayne Brown officiating.

The interment was held at the Veal Methodist Church Cemetery on Old Columbus Road, Bowdon, Georgia. Music was provided Debbie Ethridge and Carry Lipscomb.

Mrs. Griffin was born in Newnan, Georgia on February 27, 1989, the daughter of Paul McCormick and Teena Ethridge McCormick. Seven months ago she married the love of her life, Steven Griffin. She was a Baptist by faith.

Recently she started a new job with LaGrange Healthcare, which she loved, prior to that she was a manager at the McDonalds #27 in Carrollton, Georgia. Her warm friendly personality made her a favorite among the customers.

She was a popular 2007 Heard County High School graduate, who enjoyed being with her friends. From a very early age it was clear that Brittany would be a real beauty and it was obvious from the number of pageants she won.

She claimed the titles of Miss West Georgia Fair, Miss May Fest, and Junior Miss Fair Grounds, just to name a few. Out of two hundred and fifty contestants in the Southern States Pageant Finals in Panama City she was named “Most Beautiful”.

Her interest carried her from the pageant stage to the rugged outdoors, where she was most comfortable on a horse or the back of a bike or four -wheeler. Her sweet disposition and caring ways brought sunshine to any room. She was a loving wife, daughter, and sister. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her husband, Steve Griffin of Franklin, GA., father and mother Paul and Teena McCormick of Bowdon, GA.; sister, Taffany McCormick of Bowdon, GA.; brother, Jacob McCormick also of Bowdon, GA.; in-law father and mother, Ronnie and Clara Griffin of Franklin, GA.; grandparents, Peggy and Rufus McCormick of Ephesus, GA., and Alice and Howard Wells of Franklin, GA.; brother and sister-in-law, Joshua and Desiree Griffin of Franklin, GA.; nieces and nephews, Sassy Leanna McCormick, Alexander McCormick, Lucas McCormick, and Lindsay and Raliegh Griffin; adopted grandparents, Larry and Ruby Ward of LaGrange, GA., and Van and Dianne Brown; and adopted sister and brothers, Heidi Thornton, Jake Boggus, Tyler Tanner.
