Mrs. Garrett, known affectionately to family and friends as ìLuluî, was a fifty-four year cancer survivor, who had been active at Refuge Baptist Church since the 1930ís, and a member of the Dorcas Fidelis Sunday School class. Within the small radius of the Dana community, she made her home, raised her family, and worshipped with relatives and friends. She will be remembered for her love of family gatherings, travel, gardening, and caring for children and the infirmed. Her abundant spirit and fun-loving personality will be greatly missed.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Clan and Paul Lytle, a sister, Myrtle Watterson, and daughter-in-law, Aurelia Pryor Garrett.

Survivors include a daughter, Loretta Garrett Williams and husband, Dean, of Hendersonville; a son, Joseph E.

A graveside service, to celebrate her life, will be held Wednesday, July 8th, 2009, at the Refuge Baptist Church cemetery, at 11:30 a.m. The family will receive friends, immediately following the service, at the Refuge Baptist Church Family Life Center. At any other time, the family will be at the home of Loretta and Dean Williams, at 1307 Orchard Road.
