Barbara Ann Garrett • July 20, 2020



Barbara Ann Garrett, 79 of Pensacola, Florida, went to her heavenly home on Monday, July 20, 2020. Barbara was born to Henry Dalton and Mittie Sanders on September 17, 1940 in Fayette, Alabama. She moved to Pensacola in 1960 when she married.

Barbara was a Christian and actively involved in her church, Pensacola First Assembly of God with the Women’s Ministry and anywhere else she was needed. She loved the Lord and some said you could “feel” the Holy Spirit in her bedroom/prayer room.

Barbara’s greatest legacy was her three girls; Elise, Tammie and Cheri. She was so proud of their accomplishments. She would beam with pride anytime she spoke about them. She enjoyed arts & crafts, gardening, reading, cooking and her little dog, Peppi.

Barbara was preceded in death by her father, Henry Dalton Sanders, mother, Mittie Mae Holcombe Sanders Aldridge, sister-in-law Bobbie Sanders. She is survived by her three daughters Elise (Terry) Williams, Tammie (Gary) Hull, Cheri (Danny) King; grandson Christopher Garrett; granddaughter Brittany King; her brother, Nolen Dean Sanders, three nieces, Becky (Jeff) Pollard, Dianne (Randall) Brown, Anita (Brent) Smalley families and other family and friends that she loved dearly.

An intimate family service will be held on Friday July 24th at 10:00 am that will be live streamed from Pensacola Memorial Gardens with her pastor David Scruggs officiating.

    To my wonderful cousins- Elise, Tammie and Cheri.  My heart is so heavy for you girls at the loss of your precious mother.  Aunt Barbara will always hold a special place in my heart and will forever be remembered by her legacy that she left behind and her faithful walk in Jesus Christ. She never wavered in her faith even through the most difficult battles in her life.  You had a great mother that loved you all and cherished her gifts that God blessed her with and enjoyed watching you all grow to be such special ladies. You can be proud to call her your mother.  Always remember to look up and say your prayers because she is looking down on you smiling with joy and happiness in her new home.  I will  miss her soft spoken voice calling me “hun” as well as the comforting words of encouragement she always shared. She had a servant’s heart and a passion for walking with her Lord Jesus Christ.  I have no doubt as she entered those pearly gates of Heaven, she was greeted by all her loved ones with celebration, but most importantly of all, Jesus placed his loving arms around her and said, “you have fought the fight, you have run the race, enter into the house of the Lord”.  AMEN!  It was shouting time in glory!   Praying for comfort and peace as you journey through life without the earthly presence of your mom.  We are looking forward to celebrating Aunt Barbara’s legacy in several months. Love you all very much, Dianne Brown
