Elmira Garnigan Gamble entered eternal peace on April 18, 2022. She was born May 18, 1932, the eighth of nine children born to the late Horace Garnigan and the late Clara Wise Garnigan Arnold.
Elmira accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior at Mt Zion Missionary Baptist Church. She was a faithful and dedicated member serving on the Mother’s Board and Deaconess Board until her health failed. Elmira was educated at Summer Hill High School culminating in graduation with the class of 1950. She worked many years for Howell Quillian Clinic and Sam Howell Memorial Hospital. She later retired from Cartersville Medical Center as a dietary supervisor. Elmira had a loving and caring heart. Her greatest joy was her family, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, but most of all, her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Elmira was united in Holy Matrimony to Roan Gamble. To this union five sons were born.
Elmira was preceded in death by her husband Roan Gamble, son Derrick Gamble, parents, and siblings Elizabeth Williams, Marie Garnigan, Helen Garnigan, Eula Cameron, Coleman Garnigan, Horace Garnigan, Ben Garnigan, and her loving twin Elvira Wilson.
