Carol A Wyant
May 21, 1941 – August 29, 2020
Carol Ann Wyant, 79, of Seminole, FL passed away peacefully on August 29th, 2020 in her home. Born in New York, NY and growing up in Beltsville, MD, she was a graduate of High Point High School, Class of ‘59. She attended the University of Maryland worked in the insurance industry for 10 years before becoming an accountant and eventually an auditor at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. After 30 years of Federal Service, she retired in May, 2001. Carol then spent many years enjoying retirement with her husband, Dan, spending long weekends at their North Beach cottage looking out at the ever-changing Chesapeake Bay. They often took day trips exploring southern and eastern Maryland. They also enjoyed visiting their grandchildren in Florida. Shortly after Dan passed away in 2014, Carol left Maryland and moved next door to her son, Brian, in Seminole, FL where she lived for the remainder of her days. Carol was preceded in death by her parents, John and Lillian Zocchi (Dobbler) and her husband, Daniel E. Wyant. Carol is survived by her brother, Donald Zocchi; her son, Brian Wyant and his wife, Christina, of Seminole, FL; and her grandchildren, David, Rebekah and Hannah Wyant. Carol was a very independent and resourceful woman. She loved her plants (she could make ANYTHING grow!), but none more than her cherished orchids. She was also an animal lover…taking care of the neighborhood birds (and squirrels!), and loved to visit with Brian’s dogs next door. She came to love water walking in the pool in the warm Florida sunshine. She was quite the collector of things, whether it be Teddy Bears, King Tut memorabilia, Stephen King novels, or Titanic artifacts. She will be cherished by her family and friends forever.
At this time, a celebration of life service is being postponed until a future date and will be held in Maryland. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to Suncoast Hospice (https://suncoasthospice.org/online-donations/).

I knew this dear lady as Aunt Carol, and she was always laughing, patting an appreciative dog on the head, and/or cooking something delicious. She was beautiful inside and out and will be missed. Love, Stephanie
