Mrs. Garnette Jones of Casper, Wyoming passed away at the age 78 on August 24th. She had been battling cancer for over 20 years and is now at home with our Lord.
Garnette was the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Garnett Carney. Once her father had completed his service in the Navy, the family moved to Greeley, Colorado, then later to Riverton, Wyoming. In 1957, they relocated to Casper, Wyoming where Garnette attended high school at Natrona County High School and graduated in 1961. After graduating, she began her career as an insurance agent and worked for 38 years for the following agencies: Chadwick Agency, Lange’s Western Agency, The Bon Agency Insurance and Freeberg Insurance Agency. Garnette retired from insurance in 2008. In addition to insurance, she was also the proud owner of The Ceramic Shop and Ribbons & Roses, both located on East 12th Street. She enjoyed painting, from ceramics and china to painting art with oils, acrylics and watercolor. Her favorites to paint were flowers, Wyoming wildlife, the Moulton Barn in Jackson Hole, and the beautiful landscapes of the Teton Mountains.
