Wylanta J. Mason, "Wyl", 77, of Raleigh, NC passed away at her home on July 18th, 2021, after a long battle with cancer. Wyl was born on August 10, 1943 in Pittsburgh, PA. She had lived in Raleigh since 1980.

Wyl was preceded in death by her mother, Wylanta R. Mason and her father, Walter H. Mason; and her uncle, Frank H. Mason.

Surviving are her soulmate and best friend, Ron Wigston; her son, Alex Podobinski and his wife Randi Podobinski, and their son, Bryce Podobinski; her daughter, Nanta Podobinski, and her children, Justin Tew and Kyle Tew; her brother, Danny Mason and his wife, Karen; her nephews, Scott Mason, Bennett Mason; her niece Lyndsey Mason; her aunt, Anne Mason; and her cousin, Arden Mason

She loved her family and friends and everyone loved her. She made friends easily and everyone wanted to be like her, strong and independent. Wyl loved life and lived it to the fullest every day. She enjoyed nature, watching birds, growing flowers, riding her Harley and siting by the ocean watching the waves and sunsets.

The family will receive friends Friday, July 23rd from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm, followed by a service to celebrate her life beginning at 2:00 pm in the chapel at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home, 300 Saint Mary's Street., Raleigh.

My Mama (Jacqui) took this picture of Nanta (Wyl) back in March of 2010 when they all went on a Cruise together. Mama and Nanta talked about how much fun they had on that Cruise for years to come! They talked about taking another one as the years passed, but life got in the way and they couldn’t make that second Cruise.

Nanta spread so much joy wherever she went and was always the life of any party! She lived life to its fullest and is already so missed. Continued prayers for Little Nanta, Alex and the rest of the family.

I attribute many laughs and insights about life to Wyl. She was a great listener and friend when needed. No BS with Wyl. Her smile and laugh live on in my mind forever. She will be greatly missed. She is loved and will be remembered by many through talks at campfires and toasts.
RIP

Nanta, as I've called her all my life, was such an amazing person. She was always full of life and a joy to be around. She had a mischievous side that was infectious to those around her. The life of the party.

I'm so blessed to be able to call her family, because she is, and always will be. I love you Nanta.
