We Remember

WYATT, Esther Mabel

October 1, 1942 — November 1, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our beloved mother and friend, Esther Mabel Wyatt, who passed away on November 1, 2023, at the age of 81.

Esther was born in Vancouver, BC, on October 1st, 1942, where she lived with her parents, Agnes Helen and Willard Vern White, and her younger brother Donald. When she met the love of her life, Lyle Arnold Wyatt – they married at St. Giles’ Presbyterian Church, on August 11, 1961. Esther and Lyle went on to raise four children who survived her: Sheri Deveney (David), Jana Wyatt, Bradley Wyatt, and Vernon Wyatt (Brandi). She is also survived by six grandsons and four great-grandchildren.

Esther and Lyle moved their family to Penticton, BC during the summer of 1981, where Esther worked as a dental receptionist. Then, they moved to Kelowna two years later, where Esther worked for Valley Labs and worked there until she retired. She remained friends with her colleagues for the rest of her life.

Sadly, Esther lost her loving husband of 62 years on May 30, 2017, and lived a quiet life with her beloved dogs Abby and then Lily until her passing. Esther was a poet, a painter, and a photographer. Her landscape paintings and thousands of beautiful photos of her gardens show her passion for nature’s beauty and her love of creative endeavours.

In honour of Esther, family, and friends will each remember her in their own ways. No formal service will be held.
