September 2, 1939 - January 5, 2022
Kate Garrett, age 82, passed peacefully at her home in Huntsville, Texas on Wednesday, January 5, 2022. Born Kate Ruth Roberts on September 2, 1939, in Huntsville, Texas to parents Jim Roberts and Della Currie Roberts, Kate attended Dodge public schools, graduating from Huntsville High School and furthering her education at Cox Beauty School in Huntsville, Texas. Her eclectic career includes serving the United States Postal Service, a court reporter for Harris County, legal secretary, and owner/operator of Garrett Hill Ranch. However, Kate was best known as an entrepreneur with a Midas touch. She had a strong mind for business and enjoyed running several successful Tea & Gift shops, antique malls and most recently, Kate's Gilded Lily Antique and Gift Shop in Huntsville, Texas. Kate never met a stranger and had a smile as bright as the sun. She was bold and vivacious in an eﬀortless way that provided comforting warmth and endless fun. If you ever crossed the threshold of one of her shops, you were not her customer, you were her friend. Having a cup of coﬀee and a conversation with Kate could last a full afternoon. She never tired of listening to your stories and celebrating your accomplishments. Her greatest joy was found in sharing the many achievements of her granddaughter Brie. Kate is survived by her cherished granddaughter Chelsea Brieanne Taylor, daughter LaChey Taylor, niece Patsy Bass and husband Charles, and nephew Jimmy Bicknell. She will long be remembered and admired by bonus daughters Angela, Valerie, Regina and Lisa. Kate is predeceased by her beloved husband, James (Jim) V. Garrett, Jr., brothers Henry (Son) Roberts and James Curtis Roberts, sister Mittie Roberts Bicknell and brother-in-law Jack Bicknell. Join Kate's family and friends to honor her life on January 15th at 2 p.m. at Sam Houston Memorial Funeral Home in Huntsville, Texas. Visitation will start at noon on the same day. Kate will be interred at Center Hill Cemetery in Oakhurst, Texas with a reception immediately following at the Center Hill Baptist Church. Pallbearers will be dear friends Stephen Thornton, Craig Jeﬀcoat, Katlin Jeﬀcoat, Edward Brown, Eric Vibrock and son-in-law Shannon Taylor.
