    Mrs.Garrett will always be a part of this community, even though she has gone on to a better place. Everyone knew Garrett’s Grocery and whatever you needed, she always had. She was always there bright and early, and late at night. I did not realize we were related ,until she told me. Her grandmother was a Brownfield and my Grandfather was a Brownfield.She was a sweet lady and will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy.

    Phillip, I am so sorry to hear about Maxine. The store won’t be the same without her. I have known Maxine for about 38 years and she always had a smile on her face when ever anyone walked into the store. There were times when I would call her really late at night and she would always tell me to come on to the store and get what I was needing at the time. She was a true sweetheart. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. You and the rest of the family are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all.

  18. Ricky & Marla (Matthews) Bryant says:

    It seems that Maxene and her store have always been a part of my life. My grandfather, Chester Matthews, took me there when I was very young to buy me candy. I still stop at the store today. I always enjoyed visiting with Maxene. She was a very sweet lady. – My mother, Janice Matthews also sends her condolences – she was unable to visit at the funeral home, but she wanted to let the family know that you are in her thoughts.

  19. Jane & Bill Wininger says:
