Whyatt Ethelwyn Dumas "Billie" Whyatt, a long time resident of St. Paul, passed away at Walker Methodist Health Center in Mpls on April 15, 2003, at age 98. She was preceded in death by her husband, Irving; and is survived by her sons, Nelson (Christine) Whyatt, of Mpls, and Thomas (Robin) Whyatt, of Garrison, NY; by her sister, Hazel Mortimer of Fall River, MA; and by three grandchildren and five nieces. Billie was born in Fall River, MA, where her father had a plumbing business and was active in local politics. She attended Durfee High School and Boston University before moving to Minnesota in 1932 after her marriage to E. Irving Whyatt, also of Fall River. The couple lived in Highland Park for over 60 years, where they raised their family. Billie was active in the Methodist Church, in a variety of volunteer jobs, and above all in the PEO. She loved music, sang and played the piano, and attended Minnesota Orchestra concerts regularly for over 50 seasons. She was also an avid golfer. In later years she and Irving enjoyed boating on the St. Croix River and travel to Hawaii and to the British Isles. Her greatest pleasure, though, came from her family and her many friends, and her fun-loving personality and generosity will be greatly missed by those she left behind. Funeral services on Monday, May 19, at 1:30 PM, at Walker Methodist Health Center, 3737 Bryant Ave S, Mpls (612) 827-5931. Memorials may be sent to "PEO Educational Loan Fund", c/o Nelson Whyatt, 3844 43rd Ave. S., Mpls, MN 55406.
