Phyllis Imajean Griffith, 74, of New Castle, Virginia, passed away on Sunday, May 28, 2023, at Carolina East Medical Center.

Phyllis also enjoyed being in the kitchen cooking and preparing wonderful meals for her family and friends.
She is survived by her son, Jerald Wayne Griffith Jr. (Laura Duran) of New Bern and her grandsons, Bradley Griffith (Mary), Joshua Birkman, and Ryan Birkman.
