Jennie Lynn (Garrett) Conditt, 53, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter and sister, died Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, at her home.
Funeral is 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Skyvue Funeral Home in Mansfield. A graveside service will follow at 1 p.m. at West Bridgeport Cemetery on Farm Road 920.
Jennie was born Oct. 11, 1960, at Bridgeport Hospital to Carlton and Linda Garrett, their first and only daughter. She went through all 12 years of school in Bridgeport ISD. Jennie married Lyndon Cearley in 1978, and they had a daughter, Shannon.
In 1985, Jennie started a career in the insurance industry, working her way up the corporate ladder. By 2010, she was an assistant vice president at IMA/Towerstone Insurance in Dallas.
In 1989, Jennie married Terry Conditt, and they had a son, Cy Conditt.
Jennie was proud to be a member of the “TT’s” – a group of six girls from her 1979 graduating class who have remained close and often took trips and met for various occasions.
Jennie was diagnosed with stage 2 pancreatic cancer on Oct 31, 2012. She handled this final chapter in her life with grace and courage, thinking of other people and never once thinking of giving up. She had hope up to the very last days of her life and thanked everyone who sent a text or email, called or came to visit. There were many people who did things that gave her a reason to fight, and she appreciated them all.
She will be missed.
Survivors include her husband, Terry Conditt; daughter Shannon and husband, Michael Flowers; son Cy Conditt; mother Linda Garrett; brothers Dwayne Garrett and wife, Caprice, and Tim Garrett and wife, Carla; grandsons Garrett and Paxton Flowers; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; her son-in-law’s mother, Diana (Mau) Flowers; Lindsey Butler, the woman in Cy’s life and in his heart; and sister-in-law Cathye Bullitt and husband, Michael.
Jennie was preceded in death by her father, Carlton, in 1987 at age 48; and by her grandparents, Jim and Ollie Kelley and Luke and Gertrude Garrett.
The family suggests flowers or remembrances be sent to Skyvue Funeral Home in Mansfield or Hawkins Funeral Home in Bridgeport. Per Jennie’s request, a foundation will be set up to help people with cancer.
