Hannah Garrett, an Olema resident whose works of art emblazoned on inlaid wood puzzles touched many over the years, died Monday, Jan. 18, 1993, at home of cancer. She was 54.
A resident of Olema since 1965, Mrs. Garrett had worked as a puzzle maker and artist for 21 years. Besides selling her work at area fairs, she was frequently commissioned by individuals, who would bring in a favorite photo or other image to be emblazoned on puzzles.
She was born in Washington, D.C., and was raised in Florida. After attending Antioch College in Ohio, she went on to study art at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Mrs. Garrett played the flute, according to her brother, Geoffrey Garrett of Worcester, Mass. Recently, he said, she had studied the South American harp.
In addition to her brother, she is survived by two daughters, Naomi Bauer of Davis and Maya Bauer of Olema; her mother, Patsy Eger of Worcester; and a sister, Portia Scheltus of Noordwyk, Holland.
A memorial service was scheduled for noon today at her family home.
Arrangements are by Daphne Fernwood Mortuary in Mill Valley.
