Billie Garnick: Never forgotten

JACKSON, WY — Long-time Jackson resident Billie Garnick passed away peacefully March 13.

Garnick lived a life full of music. She danced from her hometown in St. Louis, all the way to Broadway as a young performer, and then to Jackson with her husband Bill. She passed her talents on to three generations, and her family still owns and operates the Playhouse Theater. Garnick turned 100 in January.

Buckrail interviewed Garnick last fall, just shy of her 100th birthday. Read more about her life here.

Garnick’s family reports that she was surrounded by family, friends, and her favorite 40’s music. She is survived by her son Travis, daughter-in-law Vicki, eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

A service will be held Saturday, March 16 at 11 a.m. at the LDS church in Dubois.

Says Garnick’s granddaughter, Rachael Zimmerman, “She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.”
