Myra Jane Garretson


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our sister, Myra Jane Garretson, surviving spouse of Rev. Alvin Garretson, died on Saturday, January 19, 2019.
Myra was a faithful companion as her husband Alvin began his ministry in the Evangelical United Brethren church.  He then served in the Pacific Northwest Conference followed by service in the California Conference at the Meadow Vista & Placer Hills churches, Grace UMC in Stockton, Porterville and Gridley churches.  Alvin died in 1966 before the merger that created our California-Nevada Conference.
She is survived by her son, Merle Garretson of Tacoma, WA and her son David Garretson of Sacramento, CA, and his wife Kathi, and by 3 Grandchildren and one Great-Grandchild. Condolences may be sent to Merle Garretson at 231 South 94th Street, Tacoma WA  98444. The memorial will be private.
Gifts in memory of Myra may be sent to, or to Billy Graham Ministries at 1 Billy Graham Parkway, Charlotte, NC  28201.  
Let us continue to give God thanks for Myra’s life and witness and hold his/her family close in prayer.  In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
