Jennie M Garrett 83 of Marysville, Ohio passed away Wednesday December 30, 2020 at Prestige Gardens of Marysville.

Born July 15, 1937, in Columbus/Worthington Jennie was the daughter of the late Lawrence and Waveline (Bowers) Brentlinger. She was the only daughter amongst four sons, Larry, Bob, Carl and Ronald.

Jennie was preceded in death by her children's father, Robert L. Nicley and her late husband John E Garrett.

A founding member of Bible Baptist Church of Marysville, she enjoyed sharing her wisdom with Pastor Jeremy and watching him grow over the years as she thought of him as a son. Jennie had a deep love for nature and all God's creatures. She had an amazing green thumb, and a knack for healing animals and people alike. She loved music and her favorite memories are of her father playing music with her at different guest churches growing up.
An avid painter, seamstress, carpenter and all around queen of DIY- she did it all.

Jennie is survived by her daughter, Ronetta (Robert) Thacker; grandchildren, Wesley "Chase", Kaylie and Amanda Thacker; granddaughter, Christy (Levi) Stepp; great grandchildren, Weslee and Isabella Stepp; her three children, Bill, Tina and Danny Surber; grandchildren, Matthew Surber and Jessica (Jason) Sheppard, and great grandchildren, Rowan and Ayla Sheppard.
