She was the daughter of S.V. & Lou Helen (Clark) Boone

High Point (NC) Enterprise, Wednesday, March 19, 1924
The funeral of Mrs. Raymond L. Garrett, who died at a local hospital last night at 8:30 o'clock, will be conducted at Wesley Memorial Methodist church here Thursday morning at 11 o'clock. The pastor, Dr. E. R. McLarty, will officiate. The body will remain at the parlor of J. W. Sechrest and son, 109 East Washington street, until the hour of the funeral services.

The pallbearers will be as follows:
Active--Wendell Ferree, Lewis Tongue, A. L. Frost, R. F. Jones, G. E. Hutchens, and Dr. A. P. Staley.
Honorary--W. M. Tucker, W. A. Ring, E. S. Rochelle, D. F. Keuras, R. L. White and Richard Holton.

The death of Mrs. Garrett was a shock to a wider circle of friends and relatives. Although her health had not been good for the past year, her condition did not become alarming until about 10 days ago when she was taken to the hospital.

Mrs. Garrett, before her marriage, was Miss Bert Ruth Boone. She was 29 years of age, having been born at Lilesville, in this state, on December 13, 1894. She received her education at Albemarle, graduating from the high school of that place.

In 1915 she moved to High Point from Monroe and married Raymond Garrett on January 25, 1917. She was a young woman of beautiful Christian character and a consecrated member of Wesley Memorial church.

Surviving are the husband and one son, Raymond L. Jr.; the mother, Mrs. S. V. Brown [sic]; two brothers, Sam V. Boone, of Charlotte, and J. S. Boone, of this city; and by five sisters, Mrs. C. L. Lee, of Charlotte, Mrs. W. S Clevenger, and Misses Sarah Josephine and Lucy Boone of this city.
