Wynelle Dobson Wyatt, 97, of Covington, went home to be with the Lord, Feb. 5, 2014. Nannie, as she was affectionately called by most, was born in Cumming, Ga., to the late H.P. and Emma (Strown) Glover, and was the oldest of eight children. She married Lonnie H. Dobson in 1935, and they had three children, Ruel, Sandra and Herb. In 1997, she moved to Covington, and joined Solid Rock Baptist Church, where she faithfully attended until this last year because she was unable to walk. Nannie loved to work in her flower garden, and would be found most spring and summer days doing just that. She could grow anything, and was amazed that God would allow her to plant such a small seed and a beautiful flower would grow. Even recently, although it was difficult for her to walk, she still wanted to play in the dirt! In the last few years, she became interested in old dolls. Even dolls that were ready to be discarded, she would clean them up, dress them in new clothes and give them a name. She spent hours combing their hair and caring for her hundreds of dolls. Nannie was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend to many, and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. This world has lost someone very special, but God has gained an extraordinary Angel.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Lonnie H. Dobson; and her second husband, Harold P. Wyatt.
