Before coming to Pinelake Health and Rehab Center, retired poultry farmer Tessie Garner had never strayed far; she was a native of Moore County.
The 75-year-old widow leaves behind four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two sisters and three daughters.
Services for Garner were held at Smyrna Methodist Church near Robbins on Wednesday.
