Mildred (Millie) Griggs (Nee Tatalovich)

Mildred Griggs, age 93, a long time Hobart resident, passed away February 17, 2022, with her family by her side. Millie graduated from Hobart High School in 1946. She was a bookkeeper for both Calumet Securities and Karras Tire in Gary, IN for many years.  She was a member of St Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Merrillville, as well as the St Sava Serbian Sisters Circle, King Peter II Lodge, and a supporting member of the Karageorge Choir.
She was preceded in death most recently by her husband of 67 years Clyde Griggs, her parents Sava and Sara Tatalovich, sisters Violet Shematz and Mary Magurean, and brother George Tatalovich.
Millie is survived by her sons Jeff (Chris) Griggs and David (Deb) Griggs; four grandsons, Garrett, Jeffery, Joseph, and Alexander; numerous nieces and nephews and many longtime friends.
Millie had a loyalty and dedication about her that brought her respect from all that knew her. She loved her family unconditionally; her friends were like family to her. She enjoyed simple things in life, peach picking with her sisters, family gatherings, watching her grandson's sporting events, trips to Shipshewana, Serbian Music, Serb Fest and of course the Chicago Cubs.
