Esther J. Wyble

Esther Jane (Robins) Wyble, of Charlotte, a kind, loving and devoted mother, grandmother and friend, died Sunday, May 26, 2019 at Eaton Community Palliative Care. Esther, 92, was born April 17, 1927, the daughter of James and Alpharetta (Smith) Robins. She graduated from Charlotte High School in 1945. In June of 1947 Esther married her sweetheart, Theodore, and together started their legacy until his passing in 2008. Esther is retired from 28 years as a fabricator. She had a heart of gold, which led her to devote her retirement to volunteering her time: to the county for 30 years, Hayes Green Beach Hospital, and the VFW. Esther crocheted afghans for veterans, her church and for her loved ones. She was known for her baking. Her famous peanut butter sheet cakes were very popular for everyone’s birthdays and special events. If you were lucky she would make you her mystery cake, where she would have you guess the off the wall ingredient that was added. Her other hobbies included reading, traveling, gardening (she had beautiful flower beds), and also spending time outdoors. Esther will be remembered for always thinking about others and devoting her time to others.    

Esther is survived by her children, Norman Wyble, Shirley Wyble, Sharon (Jack) Thompson; grandchildren, Norman (Heather) Wyble II, Autumn Murphy, Amber Matthews, Seth (Heather) Matthews; four great-grandchildren; and sister, Marvel Wyble. 

She was predeceased by husband, Theodore; son, Duane Wyble; eight siblings, and her parents. 

Funeral services were held Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at Pray Funeral Home in Charlotte, with Pastor Charles Jenson officiating.  

If desired, the family suggests memorial contributions to Eaton Community Palliative Care.
