GRIFFY, MARY - Oklahoma City  
Dec. 6, 1932 - Sept. 21, 2016 OKLAHOMA CITY Mary Jane Griffy (Babcock), 83, died peacefully on September 21, 2016. She was preceded by her beloved parents, Leonard and Dimple (Vivian) Babcock; infant brother, Shelby Babcock; and uncle, Elam James Babcock. She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Elbridge Bud Griffy III; brother, James Babcock and wife Jean; brother-in-law, David Griffy and wife Kay; four sons, Skip and Georgia, Bryne and Mary, Jim and Elissa, and Henry Griffy; granddaughter, Ana Griffy; and extended family and friends in Indiana and Kentucky and everywhere who will miss her dearly. The family is grateful to Crystal Self, Kathleen, and Susan at Right At Home and all the great staff at Baptist Hospital and the Bellevue Convalescent Center. Jane grew up in Shawnee and Oklahoma City, living briefly in New Orleans after graduating from The University of Oklahoma, where she pledged Alpha Chi Omega. Retiring in 1996, Jane and Bud enjoyed traveling the USA and Canada from Alaska to Florida in a series of ever larger motorhomes. They also enjoyed traveling beyond the continent, particularly to Hawaii, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand. Jane treasured her family and friends and was always there when help was needed. She was an active and loved member of Village United Methodist Church, and applied her faith in her daily life. She loved Wheel of Fortune and the Sooners, and woe unto anyone foolish enough to interrupt either. She possessed an easy manner and infinite patience, important traits in a family with four boys. As many have noted, Jane was an all-time great lady. Our wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandma, cousin, friend - we love you and we miss your huge smile already. May you continue in peace. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Skyline Urban Ministries.

GREENE, JAN - Oklahoma City  
Feb. 28, 1953 - Sept. 14, 2016 MIDWEST CITY Janice Ann Morehead Lueb Greene, age 63, died in her Midwest City home after a long battle with several forms of cancer. Born February 28, 1953, she was the middle child of Earl and Joyce Morehead. A graduate of Carl Albert High School, she earned a B.S. in Accounting from the University of Central Oklahoma and soon afterwards, passed the challenging exam to become a Certified Public Accountant. Along the way, she met and fell in love with Gordon Greene. They dated for two years before becoming a family that included her sons, Eric and Jason Lueb, and Gordon's son, Shannon. After working as a bursar for a local hospital, Jan opened her own Midwest City office under the name Jan Greene, CPA. She provided tax and accounting services in an atmosphere so comfortable that many clients would share all sorts of unrelated personal problems with her. And many brought their children, knowing that Jan would let them play with toys from a large selection she kept nearby for that purpose. Despite her business acumen and the satisfactions of her work, Jan's greatest joys were her family - her sons and grandchildren Benjamin and Emily Lueb of Midwest City; and Jack, Alec, Nick and Paul Greene of Howell, Michigan. Her office was a second home to local grandkids Ben and Emily and their friends; they could always find snacks in her office kitchen where they and all their friends called her "GrandJan".Jan led an active life, frequently attending lectures, concerts, and theatre. She read widely. She enjoyed international travel and visited some of the world's great art museums. She served as treasurer and president of her church and did volunteer work as a Court Appointed Special Advocate representing underprivileged youth in OKC. She enjoyed the friendship of many. Hers was indeed an accomplished, loving, and well-lived life.She is survived by her husband, sons Eric of Midwest City, Jason of Port St. Lucie, FL, Shannon of Michigan, their children and grandchildren; two sisters, Judy Morehead Jennings Gregory of Norman, and Nancy Morehead Corbit Derusha of Choctaw and their families; and a host of cousins, nephews and nieces.Services will be held on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 600 N.W. 13 St., OKC. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to the American Cancer Society.
