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, although women in Texas could not vote at the time, Mariette Rheiner ran for Uvalde County judge, but was defeated by the incumbent, John Nance Garner. Two years later, on November 25, 1895, she married Garner in Sabinal, Texas. They had one child, a son, Tully Charles Garner (1896–1968).
