Sarah June Ross Garmon, age 92, of Miller Grove, TX passed away peacefully on March 1, 2023. She was born on June 3, 1930, to Kelcie and Mildred Ross in Yantis, TX. She married Paul W.

June came to know Christ at an early age and was a member of the County Line Baptist Church in Miller Grove. She had a rich heritage of Southern gospel music as she and her family traveled with her parents leading singing schools and making memories with many loved ones they met along the way. Over the years, she sang and played piano for many church services, funerals, and community events. She enjoyed sewing for her children and grandchildren. Family gatherings were always enhanced by her quick wit, embellished stories, and spontaneous singing of her favorite tunes. She could find humor in most any situation and loved to make others laugh.
