Oklahoma State Rep. Claudia Griffith Dies at 67

Jul 15, 2018

The family of state Rep. Claudia Griffith has confirmed she has died at the age of 67.

The Democrat from Norman was elected to the House in 2014 and again in 2016. She had recently been running for state Senate and was set for a runoff in August against Mary Boren. Boren says she will suspend campaign activities to honor Griffith and her family.

Griffith spent a full career in healthcare, recently serving as the Executive Director of Health for Friends, a healthcare non-profit organization which provided prenatal, chronic disease, pharmacy and dental services to the underserved.

Gov. Mary Fallin said on Twitter late Saturday that she was saddened by the news.

Griffith was married with three children and had recently welcomed her first granddaughter. Funeral services are pending.
