Victoria Lee Garrett

Victoria Lee Garrett, age 76, of Mena, died Monday, November 22, 2022, at the Bear Creek Healthcare in De Queen, Arkansas. She was born on Friday, February 6, 1946, to Walter Tollenaer and Ellen Lerdall Tollenaer in Rock Island, Illinois.

Victoria was a woman of faith who always let God guide her life. She was unbelievably smart, acing all tests and graduating with three different associate degrees with honors. Victoria met her husband, William, in 1982 in Kansas and had a wonderfully happy marriage for 39 years. She always enjoyed reading fiction novels as well as history. Victoria loved to try new things with her husband, fishing, raising horses, shooting, water skiing and a lot of other fun things she didn’t get to experience in her youth. She was naturally talented and picked up just about anything she tried. Victoria had a huge collection of miniature Christmas houses. Her family gave her strength and she provided them all with unending love and a happy home. Victoria was a loving wife, sister, aunt and friend and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She is preceded in death by her parents; two grandsons, Joshua and Matthew; and one son, Brett Bannon.

Victoria is survived by her loving husband of 39 years, William Ronald Garrett of Mena; one son, Robert Dean Bannon of Wichita, Kansas; one daughter and son-in-law, Lynne Ellen and Bill Montana of Wilburton, Oklahoma; two sisters, Lori Woldon of Neodesha, Kansas, and Chris Romoser of Illinois; grandchildren, Michael David, Victoria and husband, Tim, Carrie, Jennifer, and Dena; six great-grandchildren; several nephews and nieces and a host of other relatives and friends.

A memorial service will be held at a later date in Neodesha, Kansas. Cremation services are entrusted to Bowser Family Funeral Home in Mena.
