Emma Louise Garrett, 68, passed away on Monday, June 12, 2017, at home with her family by her side.

Emma loved to garden and watch NASCAR and she always enjoyed a good party. She was such a great cook that her biscuits and gravy were very well known. She was very family oriented. She loved others more than she loved herself. She loved to be around her family. She was an amazing wife, parent, grandparent, and friend. Everyone who met her didn't get away without a loving hug. In one word, she was described as a saint.
