It is unfortunate that I have to bring news that Joan Elaine Garrett passed away on Monday, November 27, 2017. She had been affected by kidney failure this last year and put up a vigorous defense against the disease. She fought until the last few days when she passed away in her sleep at home in Houston with her cat "Kitty". She looked forward to returning to Houston after being unable to tolerate her dialysis treatments in Keller, TX. She had postponed her treatment in Houston many, many times and this is the reason for her deciding to come to Keller on her own when she knew that a very nice facility was waiting for her. She had a tough time adjusting to the dialysis treatments. She had always been an independent person and had her mental capacity to make her own medical decisions, even after coming to Keller It came to a point that she had to do something and she tried. She had her fighting spirit to the end.
She graduated from Lamar HS in Houston, TX - Class of 1958, she graduated from University of Houston with a teachers certificate, and obtained Master of Library Science degree from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX.
We will always miss Joan."
