Paige Nicole Griffin of Middlebury Center, PA died at home on Saturday, November 24, 2018. She was 22 years old. Paige was born on September 30, 1996 to Chad and Michele Griffin. She was an exceptional young woman who valued her loved ones and community. Paige was an accomplished artist, a talented violinist, an expert ice cream scooper, and a dedicated Girl Scout. She loved to write stories of adventures almost as much as she loved to have them. Paige was determined to live her life with as much authenticity and joy as possible and in that, she succeeded. Throughout her cancer diagnosis, she remained the ray of sunshine, she always was, and handled each obstacle with quiet grace and humility. Paige had many things she wanted to do in this life, from learning to throw knives to changing the world. Paige certainly changed the worlds of her loved ones—anyone who met her knew she was someone special.
