AMERICA JANE GARRISON
Mrs. America Jane Garrison died at her home near Sullivan, Greene County, March 13, 1923. Death was probably due to the infirmities of age, but the end was thought to have been brought nearer by an attack of grip from which she had suffered three weeks before. She was a great sufferer, but bore it all with such patience, which could not help but be noticed by those who visited her during her illness trying to be as little trouble as possible to those whose happy lot was to care for her. Mrs. Garrison was the widow of the late William Atwell Garrison who proceeded her to the grave 13 years ago. She was a daughter of St, Clare and Frances Sullivan, the last member of a large family and was 88 years old. She was a direct descendant of the earliest settler of Virginia the Simmons family for whom Simmons Gap was named. She spent practically her entire life within a radius of three miles having been born near the place she died. Mrs. Garrison was known by everyone as "Ann America" which was rightfully due her because of her warm heartedness, and kindly advise to all. She had been a sincere Christian for 70 years having given her heart to God at the age of 18. She was a member of the Church of the Brethren though loyal to her own denomination she was not selfish toward others for all who in the work of the Master, whose pleasure it was to visit her home or live in her home as many of them did, always found and open door and a hearty welcome and good advice and counsel whenever it was needed. Mrs. Garrison took as her companion the Word of God. On visiting her home one would always find her studding this sacred book and example everyone should follow. She leaves two sons, Messrs. William K. Garrison of Cedarmere and Robert L. Garrison of Sullivan; also a daughter-in-law in Batavia, Ill; seven grandchildren and a number of great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Mrs. Garrison was tenderly laid to rest by the side of her husband in the family burying ground at Sullivan March 14. The funeral services were conducted by Elder George A. Maupin, as was her request, assisted by Rev. Robert W. Lewis, Mr. E. Y. Vernon was the undertaker. A large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends attended the funeral to pay their last tribute of respect to this dear woman, whom they had long loved and honored. The sweet memory of her will long linger in the hearts of those who knew her and her good works will follow her. Her beautiful Christian life and her goodly advice and counsel should be taken as guide posts along the way to the goal which she has so peacefully attained, eternal life and a home in heaven.
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on his gentle breast,
There by his love overshadowed,
Sweetly her soul shall rest.
Mrs. George W. Hall

When the greenhouse closed, he wanted to stay busy so he went to work for Patterson's Flower Shop, in Crozet, which made him very happy because he felt needed.
