Obituary

Tracy H. Griswold died on January 1, 2020, at her lifelong home in Litchfield, Connecticut at age 100. Born on April 2, 1919, to Sherman P. Haight and Anne Lyon Haight, she saw many changes in her life time. She lived the period from Model T autos to Alexa and IPads. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and a successful business woman.
She started her business career as a young woman working at B. Altman & Co. in New York City as part of their “flying squad”. In that position she acted as a personal shopper, translated for French speaking customers and modeled in their fashion shows. She later went into business for herself, opening “As You Like It”, a woman’s custom dress shop on Madison Avenue. She had been taught to sew at an early age by her grandmother. After the war, she worked as a children’s clothes designer for the family firm, E-Z Mills, Inc. She would often take her daughters with her on her business trips to the factories in Tupelo, Mississippi, where they had great fun running on long cutting tables.
Later she used her design talents to establish an interior design company, T. Griswold & Associates, Inc. She designed both residential and commercial interiors. She lived in New York City, Litchfield, CT and Vero Beach, FL.
She was President General of the Colonial Dames of America and a member of the Huguenot Society, the Colony Club, the Litchfield Garden Club, and the Order of St. John in England.
She was married to the late George Griswold and is survived by their three daughters, Tracy Glass, Mariana Griswold Geer, and Abby Griswold Stetson, six grandchildren, and six great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by Harry Roberts, her partner of twenty years.
She will always be remembered for her generous and clever spirit and for her love of her family and friends.
Donations in her honor may be made to the Litchfield Historical Society or the Norfolk Historical Society.

Tracy was the best neighbor ever! We loved hearing her stories about Litchfield and the Haight family. I am forever in awe of her beautiful gardens, and she was always so generous with advice. We miss her and hope to see some family members soon! Much love to all!

“What a beautiful service! Sending lots of love to Tracy, Mimi, and Abby. My favorite memories of Aunt Tracy are her fried bananas and the pressure cooker. I always thought the pressure cooker was going to blow us all out of the kitchen. ❤️
Be well, Mary H.”

“My heart goes out to you Abby, and all the Griswold family. Mrs. G (to me) was an amazing woman with a deep love for her family. You couldn’t spend time with her and not realize you were in the presence of a classy woman with an incredible history. She always made me feel welcomed, and put up with my inquiring questions about her life. I felt lucky to have known her.
She may be gone, but she will always be in the hearts of many.

Love and Hugs...♥️
Cathy Lisherness”
