Natalie Holt Garrett

Natalie Holt Garrett began her new life in Heaven early Sunday, May 27, 2001. She will be remembered by family and friends as a lady who was determined, independent, strong, generous, and loving. Her family was the most important thing in her life and she has left them with many wonderful memories.

"Me-Me," as she was called by her grandchildren, and her twin sister, Helen, were born in Lonoke, Arkansas on July 20, 1918. After graduating from high school, she went to beauty college and began her career as a beautician representative with Helene Curtis, where she traveled extensively. During her travels she met her future husband, Joe L. Garrett. After marrying she lived and raised her children in Harlingen, Texas.

The Garretts lived in Harlingen, Houston, San Antonio, and McAllen, Texas. Joe, her husband, passed away after they had been married for 36 years. After his death, Mrs. Garrett lived in McAllen, Arlington and Missouri City. While living in Missouri City, she and her sister, Helen, were neighbors and close friends until her sister's death in 1997.

Natalie has three daughters, Elaine Lykes of Georgetown, TX, Jonelle Karraker of Missouri City, TX, and Julia Harris of Ridgefield, CT. She also has 8 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and many other beloved relatives. She enjoyed raising flowers, flower arranging, sewing, needlepoint, and keeping in touch with family and friends. Her children appreciate the many family members and friends who have been so kind to their mother. They want to thank the people who prayed for Natalie and have been so attentive to her. They especially appreciate: Dr. Bonny Olney and staff, the Hospice at the Texas Medical Center, and the Mariner Health Center of First Colony, who were all such excellent caregivers.

There will be a memorial service held in remembrance of Natalie Garrett on Thursday, May 31, 2001 at 11:00 a.m. at Sugar Creek Baptist Church in the chapel.
