Estelle Adams Wyatt of Landis went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 24, 2019 at Liberty Commons in Salisbury, NC. She was born on January 29, 1925 in Clover, SC. She was a daughter of the late John Vernon and Vinia Rogers Adams. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years, Britt Wyatt and four sisters, Bearl Williams, Pearl Ballard, Juanita Lambert, Trilba Allman and two brothers, Stanley Adams and John Vernon Adams.
In 1952, Estelle’s best friend, Betty Honbarrier invited her to Landis Baptist Church. Since then, she has been a dedicated and faithful member there. Estelle loved Jesus, her Bible and her church family. She never met a stranger and was always willing to share her testimony and pray with anyone and everyone. Estelle was active in the Ladies Missionary Sunday School Class, the Ethel Cochran Circle and loved to sing in the choir. When she was able, Estelle enjoyed assisting on youth trips. She retired from Plant 4 Cannon Mills after 44 years of service. Estelle loved her crafts, especially sewing, quilting and crocheting and she never forgot her love of playing softball.
Estelle loved her family and the time spent with them. Those left to cherish her memory are daughters, Phyllis (Eric) Wyatt Ennis, Linda (Charles) Wyatt Cornelius, her son, Tommy (Lois) Wyatt and 10 grandchildren, Rick Ennis (Kim), Jeff Ennis (Ann), Traci Sorg (Ken), Debbie Barnette, Donna Donahue (Tim), Susan Linn (Jeff), Brandon Cornelius (Lindsay), Andrew Cornelius (Aubrie), Adam Cornelius and Brittany Honeycutt (Taylor), 19 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
