Cylie Noel Wyatt, 36, of Gering, passed away suddenly on Thursday, May 19, 2022, from a saddle pulmonary embolism. Cylie had a kind heart and chose to be an organ donor, so this tragedy will bring life to others. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 26, 2022, at Emmanuel Congregational Church in Scottsbluff with Pastor Garry Schick officiating. The service will be recorded and uploaded afterwards to her obituary page viewable at www.reverencefuneralparlor.com. Cylie adored dogs and therefore memorials in her honor may be made to the Panhandle Humane Society in Scottsbluff.
Cylie was born June 19, 1985, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Andrew and Ylanda (Mills) McCawley. She attended Bellevue University where she received a bachelor's degree in history and art history.
She met Nathaniel John Wyatt while residing in Omaha and they were united in marriage in 2011. The couple lovingly welcomed their only son, Noah, into the world in January of 2017. The family eventually settled in Gering where Cylie transformed their new home into a warm and comfortable space. She was a self-taught and very talented interior decorator, taking pride in adding that extra special touch to make their house a home. Cylie loved God, her husband Nate, and her son Noah with all her heart. They were her world and taking care of them was her life’s work. Family was important to Cylie. She cherished the time she had with her parents and siblings, often keeping in touch with them daily despite the distance between them. Additionally, she was a caring, giving, and supportive friend to many.
Sunflowers and peonies were her favorite flowers, and her favorite color was purple. She loved the scent of lavender. Cylie had a soft heart for dogs, puppies, and pastures filled with moo-cows (or moo-taus, as she would call them as a small girl). She enjoyed watching the classic TV shows, Golden Girls, Fraiser, and Friends. She had a deep interest in history and liked reading about it, especially anything involving World War II. Her great grandfather, Jack D. Rude, was a tail gunner on B-17s and B-24s during WWII. She interviewed him about his wartime experiences for a thesis she wrote in one of her college classes. Cylie was extremely skilled at making all kinds of craftsy items and was a budding artist on the side. She attempted gardening, although she didn’t have much of a green thumb, which led to Cylie calling her mother often for advice.
