Obituary for Willie Lou Garrett

Willie Lou Garrett was born on April 12, 1938 in Sylacauga, Alabama to the late Georgia Mae Kieth and Willie Jr. Keith. She was the oldest of their two girls.
On July 13, 1953 Willie gave birth to her only child, Linda Fay Sparks. She then was married in 1956. Willie moved and worked in Ohio in the 1960’s in the Dry Cleaning Business.
In 1977 she moved to Denver to be around her daughter and grandchildren. While in Denver she held CAN jobs in several nursing facilities in Denver, CO and Aurora, CO. She later found work in the dry cleaning industry again at Regency Cleaners on Jewell and Havana; which then took her to Wichita, Kansas in 1985 to work for Paul and Eileen Checkieye at Best Cleaners where she became the manager and worked there until she became ill in 1990.
In 1990 she then moved back to Colorado to live with her daughter Linda, who took care of her until her passing, where she was surrounded by friends and family.
“She had the biggest hear, she would give you the shirt off her back. She was the feisty rock of the family. Willie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
