On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, our good Lord took home one of his angels. At the age of 95, Venita Garnett left her earthly body and flew home to her heavenly family.
Private services will be announced at a later date. Brown Funeral Home in Gloster, Mississippi is in charge of arrangements.
Venita was born on Nov. 26, 1923, in Draw, Texas, to Ed and Alma Garnett, the eldest of 10 children.
Venita was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, as well as a loving sister.
Venita was an avid quilter and kept an immaculate yard until her stroke five years ago. She always had her loving companion with her. She outlived her last companion, a beautiful chocolate Lab, by three months. All of her beloved companions would have been waiting by the Rainbow Bridge.
Venita had an extensive working history. She worked for many years as a supervisor at Dotty Dan Factory in Lamesa, Texas. She then became the top administrator for nursing homes in Texas. She ended her long work history by retiring from Methodist Hospital as an area administrator in Lubbock, Texas.
Venita was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Noble Wood; a son, Noble Preston Wood Jr.; and four sisters, LaVerne Tomlinson, Jean Burbank, Jane Pearce and Jo Griffith.
Those left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Charlotte Clark of Lamesa, and Sherry Westbrook and Al of Liberty; grandchildren, Lynn Thomas of Lamesa, Terry Clark of Euless, Texas, Mick Clark of Lamesa, Toni Henderson and Ray of Liberty and Damon Westbrook and Julie of Liberty; seven great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; three brothers, Sonny Garnett of Vernon, Texas, Don Garnett and Dennis Garnett, both of Lubbock, Texas; two sisters, Evelyn Chenault of Lubbock and Wilma Little of Chickasha, Oklahoma; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A very special thank-you to Venita’s caregivers, Jocelyn Nunnery, Nellie Nunnery, Oreal Nunnery, Nancy Nunnery, St. Luke Home Health and St. Luke Hospice.
