Tina Elizabeth Garrett

January 30, 1928 - January 4, 2013


Tina  Elizabeth Garrett passed away on Friday, January 4, 2013 at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 84 years.  Tina (tiniest of 10 children) was born on January 30, 1928 in a farming area outside of Young, Saskatchewan, one of 10 children born to Emma and Gust Johnson.

Tina was predeceased by her husband William (Bill Sr.) in February of 2011 and is survived by her children, daughter Sharon who lived with her until her death and one son William Jr. (Billy Jay) and (Robin) of Cranbrook; her grandchildren Christian (Scotty), Samantha, Chelsea (Andre) and Russell (Eva) along with four great grandchildren, April, Bryce, Billy and Cohen , all of Cranbrook and her brother and sister-in-law Norman/Bud (Roberta) of Kaslo, BC, sister-in-law Dorothy of Victoria, BC and brother Bill Johnson of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and many greatly loved nieces and nephews.

Tina will always be remembered for her love of her family, they were her whole world and friends who she talked about often and fondly.

Tina's working career started in 1964 when she went to work in retail for Karnie's Ladies Wear in Castlegar until 1968 when the family moved to Cranbrook. She then worked for the old Cranbrook MERC until it closed and then for Woolworths in the new Baker St. Mall until she and her husband and daughter moved to Victoria in 1975.  When her husband retired in 1995, they both returned to Cranbrook to be closer to their son's family and grandchildren.

In accordance with her wishes a celebration of life will be held in late spring of 2013 in Kaslo, BC (date to be determined).  Internment will be at the Kaslo Cemetery where her ashes will be placed with her husband's in the family plot.

The family would like to especially thanks the members of the BC Ambulance Team, the nurses, doctors and staff of Cranbrook/East Kootenay Regional Hospital for their kindness, understanding and caring during Tina's final hours.
