They would have two loved sons: Dennis Wyandt (Jennie), Dana Wyandt.  Her sons would both marry and bring her such joy, her four wonderful grandchildren: Brooke Wyandt Leske (Darren), Jonathan Wyandt, Victoria Wyandt and Alex Wyandt (Ellen) and they would bring her precious great grandchildren: Adeline, Luke and Ruby. She loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them.

One of her many hats she established the Historical Society of Oldsmar. She also established and served as president of the Top of the Bay Garden.
