      Dr. Sibyl W. Wyatt

      Graveside services for Dr. Sibyl W. Wyatt, 92, of Nacogdoches were conducted by the Reverend Justin Beadles of Grace Bible Church at Sunset Memorial Park on June 25, 2001 at 10 am. Dr. Wyatt entered her larger life on June 23, 2001, in Nacogdoches, Texas. She was born November 12, 1908, on the White Plantation in the Gravel Hill  Community in Sabine County, the daughter of Henry Ernest White and Sarah Evelyn Boyd White.

      She is survived by a son, Gayle D. Wyatt, of Nacogdoches and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

      A native East Texan, Dr. Wyatt taught British Romance and Victorian literature at Stephen F. Austin State University for twenty-five years. Prior to joining the SFA faculty, she taught and served as a high school teacher and principal in public schools; and while on leave from SFA for doctoral work, she held a teaching fellowship at Rice University.

      It is noted in the Bob Bowman's book, THE MYSTERY OF LADY BOUNTIFUL, that Sibyl White became principal of Hemphill High School in the 1940s and was perhaps the first woman in Sabine County to earn a Ph.D. (Bowman, p. 55).
