Mariette Elizabeth Rheiner Garner, known as Ettie R. Garner (July 17, 1869 – August 17, 1948) was the wife of John Nance Garner, the 32nd Vice-President of the United States, who served from 1933 until 1941.
In 1893, Mariette Rheiner ran for Uvalde County judge, but was defeated by the incumbent, John Nance Garner, a lawyer, though women at the time could not vote in Texas. Two years later, on 25 November 1895, she married Garner in Sabinal, Texas. They had one child, a son, Tully Charles Garner (1896—1968).
During her husband's tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, from 1903 to 1933, Ettie Garner served as his private secretary.
She died of a neurological ailment a month after her 79th birthday.
