Our sweet angel was called to heaven on April 27, 2020. After loving, guiding and supporting her family, she has earned her wings many times over and is now called home. She was the center and heart of her family that she loved and served selflessly.


She is survived by her husband, Dan Garrett; her children, Scott and Lindsey Garrett; her grandchildren, Brennan, Lela and Bowie. As well as her sister, Cathy Long and her sister-in-law, Diane Morgan, the Mires, the Waldorfs and the Colliers.


She loved and served her community and faith, with grace and love, improving the lives of everyone she met with her gentle spirit.


Sandra Sue Dennis Garrett was born on July 28,1946 in Waco, TX to Bob and Lela Dennis. She moved to Brownwood at an early age and graduated from Brownwood High School in 1964. She was both smart and beautiful, receiving her BA from Tarleton State University in 1968 and earning her Masters from Baylor University in 1970. She received many awards for her scholastic and civic achievements.


As a blue-eyed blonde cheerleader at Tarleton, she met her future husband and soul mate, Dan Garrett and they married in 1971. She was a teacher for over 20 years and had a special rapport with children, both those she taught and those she raised.


Sandy, better known as “Nonny,” and the sweetest woman who ever lived, wentpeacefully at her home, surrounded by her loving family. Passing from this life is a road we are all tasked with from birth, so move on, sweet lady, with pride and joy in a life well lived and well loved. What a difference she made in this world!


While she will be missed tremendously, we trust in the faith and promise that there are no tears in heaven. While devastated at the loss of her strong sweet soul, we know she is in a better place, free of any suffering. We are grateful for the many years of her loving care, and confident in the assurance we will be together again someday.
