Garnet was the stock manager at the Ames at Rita Mall for 19 years. She gave her life to the Lord several months ago and was of the Baptist faith. An outdoors person, Garnet enjoyed raising flowers, helping her husband with yard work, sitting on the porch watching the humming birds, and going 4-wheeling.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of 33 years, Ira “R.J.” Riley; two sons, Mark Riley of Chapmanville and Ryan Riley of Crites; a very special granddaughter, Haven “heyhey” Riley of Crites; one sister, Linda (Wess) Messer of Accoville; four brothers, Bill (Peggy) Farley and Jody (Elvira) Farley, both of Montpelier, Ohio, Joby (Kathy) Farley of Oceana, and Matt Farley of Kistler; her mother-in-law, Glenna Riley of Orlando, Fla.; three sisters-in-law, Barbara Riley (Sherman) Johns of Orlando, Norma Riley Weetman of Lanham, Md., and Linda Riley of Annapolis, Md.; one brother-in-law, David (Lillian) Riley of Lundale; many nieces and nephews, and special friends, Stephanie Blankenship, Kathy Hunt and the rest of the Ames family, and a host of other relatives and friends.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, September 11, at the Kistler Freewill Baptist Church with Rev. Bobby Adkins officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery at Pecks Mill.
Visitation will be from 6-9 p.m. Monday and one hour prior to services Tuesday at the church.
