Gilda Sue Yates Garrett, wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and dear friend to so many passed away on February 13, 2020.

Gilda was born December 4,1948 to Sue (Eakin) and William Yates in Fort Worth, Texas. She grew up in Burleson and graduated from Burleson High School in 1966.

She was happily married to her loving husband and partner in life J.D. Garrett for over 35 years.

Gilda spent eleven years at Godley ISD as a substitute teacher and teacher's aide where she was loved by many. She retired in 2014 but continued to help out after retirement where and whenever she could. Gilda loved traveling with J.D., going on her annual girl's trip with her longtime friends, planting her beautiful flowers, watching her favorite sports but most of all spending time with her precious grandchildren. She was the best Gigi ever!

She was a strong and faithful Christian and we are comforted in knowing she is in the arms of our Lord and savior.

Gilda is survived by her parents Sue Pugh and William Yates. Her husband J.D., her daughter Ami and husband Donovan Tanner. Grandchildren, Ashlin, Sheldon, Grayson and Hannah Curci. Stepsons Shane and Chad Garrett. Sister Lisa Whaley and brother Todd Yates and neices and nephews.
