"Garnet was mother, mommy, Maw Maw, grandma, sister, and a friend. She will be missed by many. She loved and was so proud of her state, good ole West Virginia. She had many blessings throughout her life including her neighbor, June Church Vance and husband Van. She loved life to the fullest and was well known for her sense of humor, always making others laugh, and she had a generous heart when it come to the needs of others.
