Carolyn Kay (Day) Wyatt 1942-2005

Carolyn Kay Wyatt, daughter of Gordon and Beatrice (Wilson) Day, was born March 14, 1942 in Macon, Missouri. Carolyn graduated from Camdenton High School in 1960.

Carolyn went home to be with the Lord at 11:30 P.M., April 4, 2005 after courageously battling a malignant and very aggressive brain tumor for twenty-one months. She had attained the age of 63 years and 21 days.

Carolyn was assured of eternal life and a home in heaven after accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. She then followed the Lord in obedience with believer's baptism to demonstrate outwardly what she had experienced inwardly. She was a faithful member of Maranatha Baptist Church of St. Robert, Missouri.

In 1960, Carolyn was united in marriage to Bobbie Baker of Richland, Missouri. They were blessed with two daughters, Kimberly Yvonne and Angela Kay.

In 1987, Carolyn married William "Bill" Wyatt of Waynesville, Missouri. They were married for fifteen wonderful years before Bill's homegoing to heaven in January of 2002.

From 1979 to 1987, Carolyn was employed by the Pulaski County Clerks office. In 1987, she went to work for the Laquey R-5 School District where she held positions of teacher's aide and middle school secretary. She was forced into early retirement due to her illness in 2002.

Carolyn enjoyed music greatly. She served the Lord in her church by playing the organ, piano, singing, and decorating for special events. She played the piano and sang at many weddings and church events over the years. Carolyn was a very gifted interior decorator and her home was often likened to a "museum". She decorated such that it looked as though it came out of a page of a magazine. She loved collecting antiques, creating scrapbooks, creating her own craft works and traveling coast to coast to see her daughters and grandchildren.

Carolyn will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by her two daughters: Kimberly Tidquist and her husband, Douglas and Angela Dodge and her husband, Eric all of Silver Spring, Maryland; mother: Beatrice Day of Waynesville; brother: Brent Day and his wife, Sheila of Waynesville; sister: Laura Matthews and her husband, Trent of St. James; brothers: Nathan Day and his wife, Sarah of Marshall, Quintin Day and his wife, Vicki of Lebanon and Eric Day of Waynesville; two uncles: Larry Day and his wife, Betty of Haxton, Colorado and Gene Day and his wife, Mabel of Macon, Missouri; one aunt: Gaberella Dunn of Macon, Missouri; one cousin: J.P. Dunn of Columbia, MO; five grandchildren: Kirsten, Kaitlin, Gretchen, Ryker and Rachel; fourteen nieces and nephews; a host of other relatives and friends.

In addition to her husband, Carolyn was preceded in death by her father: Gordon Day; paternal grandparents: Norris and Laura Day; maternal grandmother: Gladys Harding; her great aunt and uncle: June and Don Plank and uncle: John F. Dunn.
