Sept. 2, 1921 — Dec. 2, 2010
Jeanette “Jan” Vivian Garrison, born Sept. 2, 1921, in Daly City, Calif., went home to the Lord on Dec. 2, 2010, in Placerville, Calif. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Keith Garrison. She is survived by three loving and devoted sons, Dean Garrison, Richard Garrison and wife Donna, and Dale Garrison; grandchildren, Robert, Joye, Mike and Grant; and six great-grandchildren. Jan was fond of saying, “Children are the flowers in the garden of life, and I have a beautiful garden.”
A long-time resident of Placerville, Jan was actively involved in church and community activities. She never had an unkind word for any one; everyone always felt better for having known her.
Friends are invited to join the family at the funeral service on Thursday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m., at First Lutheran Church of Placerville. Interment will be at Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a memorial donation to Share Food Ministries, 2013 Thompson Way, Placerville, CA 95667, or to the American Heart Association, 1710 Gilbreth Road, Burlingame, CA 94010.
