The Goldendale Sentinel, Goldendale, WA., November 2, 1928, page 3




            Rebecca Garner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Garner, prominent pioneers of Klickitat county, who died at The Dalles hospital January 3, 1928, was born on the old Garner homestead southwest of Centerville May 23, 1884. She attended the school near her home and later went on to The Dalles to follow more advanced study. Her girlhood was spent in the Centerville vicinity.       
            On December 2, 1908 she was married to F. H. Anderson of Goldendale, and to this union two boys were born, Frederick Garner who is aged 13, and Robert Elmer, 7. All three survive her. She also leaves two sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Ada Miller, Mrs. Mayme Masters, Georgia and Frank Garner, all of whom reside near Centerville. Her parents and one sister have preceded her and she was buried near them in the family plot in the Centerville cemetery.       
            She took an active part in work in the Presbyterian Church and also was an ardent member of the Evergreen Chapter No. 1 O.E.S and of Leah Rebekah Lodge No. 22, I.O.O.F.       
            Although she was ever ready to help in outside activities her home always came first, and she was an ideal home-maker. Remembrance of her generosity, hospitality and happy nature will remain in the hearts of her family and multitude of friends always.       
            The family wish to thank their many friends for their assistance, sympathy, and beautiful floral tributes tendered during the sickness and death of their beloved wife, mother, and sister, Rebecca Anderson.
