Glenna Mae (Taylor) Garrett

Glenna Mae (Taylor) Garrett, age 86, crossed safely over from her home in Hawesville, Kentucky, to the arms of her Savior Jesus Christ on November 29, 2022.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Pastor Lewis C. Garrett.  Glenna lived faithfully by his side as he founded the Freewill Baptist Church in Cannelton, Indiana, and served there for over 50 years.

Glenna spent her life helping others; her family and friends were of utmost importance to her. Old-fashioned Southern gospel music was her passion, and she delighted in singing “the shape notes” and playing the piano at her church. She was an excellent homemaker, seamstress, cook and gardener. She will be sorely missed.

Glenna is survived by a son, Kendall Garrett (Connie), of Hawesville and a daughter, Bonita Epley (Steve), of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.  She also leaves behind eight grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, and a sister, Jessie Burdett, of Lake Placid, Florida.

Other than her husband, she is preceded in death by her parents Earl and Ellen (Ward) Taylor.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 AM CST on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at Freewill Baptist Church, Cannelton. Visitation will be Friday from 4:00-7:00 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM until service time at the church. Burial will follow in New Cliff Cemetery in Cannelton.

Huber Funeral Home, Cannelton Chapel is handling Mrs. Garrett’s arrangements.

Memorial contributions may be made to Freewill Baptist Church, Cannelton.

    Mrs Garrett was a precious soul! I was honored to be her dental hygienist for 40 years! We had many sweet visits at her appointments. Got to visit with her at the Greater Vision concert in Hancock Co a few months ago for which I was thankful! She will be missed!
