Within the small radius of the Dana community, she made her home, raised her family, and worshipped with relatives and friends.

    My father, Joe Hyder, was always teasing and joking with Mrs Garrett. He would often reger to her as Granny. Being very young when I first heard this, I too started calling her Granny. I Visited last with her in June a couple of days before my Mom passed. Mom, Catherine Hyder, was in the room across the hall. They will be missed so very much.
