As the day draws closer to the end than when it began, the Majestic Family joins with loving arms wrapped around the relatives of Ms. Loretta Rush Griffen as we embark on the “Last Mile” on this side of the Jordan with her. Ms. Loretta got her ticket and stepped on that Morning Train Tuesday at Suny Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Services to reflect on “The Dash” of Ms. Loretta’s life, which was from her time of birth until the moment she entered into everlasting rest, are finalized by her cherished family. This coming Friday evening, September 13, 2019 between the hours of 5pm and 7pm tender moments of reflection will take place, as Ms. Griffen rests in tranquil repose in the main chapel of Majestic Funeral Homes’ Elizabethtown campus. While there, relatives and friends can unite in love and support for each other as they prepare to say “farewell”. On Saturday afternoon commencing at 2pm, there will be a Triumphant Legacy Celebration at Mt. Zion AME Zion Church in Elizabethtown N.C. Following the services in the House of God, Ms. Griffen’s delicate temple along with her adored family, will be escorted to the Church Cemetery for Interment Rites. Ms. Loretta was so much to so many and it will be difficult with her no longer being with us on this side. However, those who loved her can find solace knowing, she is now strolling the streets paved with pure gold free from all of life’s fitful fevers. There, she’s sitting at the Welcome Table feasting on milk and honey, while enjoying being in the presence of her Heavenly Father.
Loving memories will be forever cherished by her children: Shakim J. Rush and Donald G. Rush; her grandchildren: Brandon, Kyra, Matthew and Laila; 8 sisters: Debra P. Rush, Darlene Rush, Carlene Rush, Jacquline McDowell, Brenda Rhodie, Agatha Cromartie, Leslie Cromartie and Lynda Mckiver; 5 brothers: Thomas Cromartie, Alphonso Mack, Willie Mack, Dameion McDowell and Jimmy Bordeaux; one step-brother, Keith Nesmith along with a host of other relatives and friends.
The family is receiving visitors at the residence located at 607 Newkirk St., Elizabethtown, NC, where they will also assemble in preparation for the Prestigious Majestic Ebony Motorcade.
The Compassionate Professionals of Majestic Funeral Home are working around the clock to provide the Rush and connected families with uncompromising dignity during this difficult moment in life.
