Obituary for Carolyn Garrett

Carolyn Garrett, 91, of Bonnerdale, Arkansas, passed away August 30, 2017. She was born November 22, 1925, in Hot Springs to Henry Ervin and Dolly Bell (Arman) Wheatley. Carolyn was a lifelong member of First Pentecostal Church in Hot Springs. She worked at National Rejectors for 17 years. Carolyn raised six children, loved to cook, sew, camp, read Christian novels, and do the daily puzzles and cryptoquote. But mostly, she always had time for her family.

Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Gipson “Gip” Garrett; brother, Bobby Wheatley; sisters, Loyce Myers, Joyce Graham; and granddaughter, Melissa Joy Brenneman.

Survivors include sons, Bob Garrett (Joyce), James Garrett (Mary), Mark Garrett; daughters, Reba Pennington (Vic), Glenda Porter (Jerry), Debbie Brenneman (Mike); grandchildren, Shannon Pennington, Rachel Schichtl (Luke), Tamara Garrett, Brian Porter (Stephanie), David Porter, Charis Smith, Garrett Brenneman, Michaella Brenneman, Abby Brenneman-Garcia (Julio), Rebecca Brenneman (Fiance: Phillip Hull), Logan Brenneman, Victoria Brenneman, Ericka Garrett, B.J. Garrett; nine great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A visitation will be 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tuesday at Caruth-Hale Funeral Home.

A celebration of Carolyn’s life will be 10:00 a.m. Wednesday at First Pentecostal Church with Rev. Jerry Garrett and Rev. Wilbert Bates officiating.

Burial will follow at Mazarn Chapel Cemetery in Bonnerdale.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to “our brother”, Mark Garrett, who unselfishly gave his tender loving care to our mother, our father, and our Aunt Helen for many years, and also to many other special friends, including: Ms. Florence Brumley, who introduced our parents to one another.
