Ms. Barbara Wyatt, 67, of Eatonton, died peacefully December 16, 2019 at her lake home as she watched the sunrise over the lake. Ms. Wyatt would like her friends and family to know that she was not the kind of person who would give up without a fight. During her brief illness, she received an enormous amount of love from all her friends and family. She believed in God, in family, in truth between people and in the power of love. She also believed that we are created in God’s image and that there is God in all of us. She dealt with the God she knew.
Ms. Wyatt is preceded in death by her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Clyde Sanders and Mr. and Mrs. Dennis P. Wyatt, Sr.; her parents, Dennis Perry Wyatt, Jr. and Evelyn Sanders Wyatt; aunts and uncles, Mr. and Mrs. Owen Fussell, Ms. Frances Sanders, Jerry Sanders, and Shep Hanner; and cousin, Gene Allen Fussell.
Ms. Wyatt is survived by her sister, Denise Wyatt; aunts and uncles, William Clyde Sanders of Eufaula, AL, Robert Sanders (Jane), of Macon, GA, Mrs. Jean Hanner, of Richmond VA, Mrs. Patricia Sanders Spoerl (Clarence), of Carlisle, PA, Mrs. Carolyn Samford Sanders, of John’s Creek, GA; fifteen caring and loving cousins; and her devoted companions, Harry Rex and Pickles.
In 1974, Ms. Wyatt received her Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from the University of Georgia. She received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Georgia in 1995. Ms. Wyatt was the first female pharmacist at Faile’s Pharmacy in Macon, GA. She was the Clinical Pharmacy Manager at Anderson Health Center Pharmacy, and Central Georgia Health Systems Employee Apothecary for the Medical Center of Central Georgia. Her work continued at OptionCare of Middle Georgia as Director of Clinical Operations and Mercer University Medical Center of Central Georgia Clinical Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice.
Ms. Wyatt had a passion for reading, genealogy, painting, playing cards with her friends, being outdoors gardening, and making bluebird houses for her bluebirds. She was a member of Town and Country Garden Club, McEvoy 70’s Lassies, The Canterbury Kids, and an avid Georgia Bulldog fan. Her legacy is the inspiration she gave and the changes she brought about in the lives of those who loved her.
