Carol M. Garrett, 68

August 23, 1953 - October 11, 2021

Carol M. Garrett, 68, of Millersville, lost her battle with cancer on Monday, October 11, 2021, when she passed at home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of Marie (Fetter) Kopf and the late Albert “Albie” Kopf. Carol was the beloved wife of William L. Garrett, and they would have celebrated 42 years of marriage on October 19th.

Carol graduated from JP McCaskey High School with the Class of 1971. She worked as a Customer Service Supervisor for Armstrong Industries, retiring in 2010 after more than 35 years of service. An avid golfer, she played with the league at Crossgates Golf Club in Millersville. She and her husband enjoyed traveling and going to Aruba twice a year where she enjoyed the beach. They also went dancing every chance they could. Carol had an infectious smile and laugh, and especially loved spending time with her family and friends.

Along with her husband and mother, Carol is survived by two daughters, Karen Ehrhart and her husband Brian of Lititz, and Kerri Lee Null and her husband Charlie of Willow Street. Also surviving are three grandchildren, Derek, Kyle and Demi, and two sisters, Elaine Atwater (Pierce), and Judy Turner (the late Jimmie).

Family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service which will begin at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA, 17543, where her family will receive guests from 9:30 – 11:00 AM. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Carol’s memory to Hospice & Community Care, P O Box 4125, Lancaster, PA, 17604.

Dear Bill,
We were so very sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. We just returned from Aruba and felt a void on the beach that Carol loved so much. We have fond memories of her warm smile and friendly personality, as well as long “chats” on the beach and the “Martini Party” that the two of you hosted a few years back. Carol was a very special person and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Gail and Dick Lawrence ❤️

Carol was the administrative ‘glue’ that held together our Armstrong retail ceilings effort. She was bright, creative and confident — anticipating what needed to be done, and not shy about suggesting how things could be done better. She provided continuity as young managers rotated through the team. Carol’s warmth, and Bill’s deep voice, were valuble attributes of that Armstrong ‘family.’  RIP Carol.

My sympathies and prayers are with all of Carol’s family.  What a wonderful woman.  I “volunteered” with Carol at Crossgates GC and we shared many laughs and adventures together there.  The picture is a perfect representation of her…always with a smile.  It is an honor to have shared a bit of life’s journey with her.
Good-byes may be the law on Earth, but Reunions are the law of Heaven.  May God give you His Peace during this time.  Enjoy the memories and always smile…just like Carol did.
 
Peace,  Wayne Hoffman
