September 11, 1943 – January 13, 2018
Louise A. Hyatt, age 74, of Wilmington, Delaware, passed away on Saturday, January 13, 2018 after a courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer.
Born in Wilmington on September 11, 1943, she was the daughter of the late Carlton and Ruby (Littleton) Casson. Louise’s career included over forty years of dedicated service to Wilmington University. In that time, her co-workers became part of her extended family. She had a tremendous work ethic, always willing to lend a hand. She cherished her family and friends as if they were gifts and enjoyed baking and decorating beautiful cakes for them. She treasured every minute spent with her grandchildren, and loved to travel with her husband. Their passion for travel usually involved a cruise ship, but they frequented Atlantic City where they cherished long walks on the beach. Above all, she was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
In addition to her parents, Louise is preceded in death by her brother, Merrill Casson. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, John E. Hyatt, Jr.; son, Daniel E. Hyatt, Sr. (Louise) of Newark; daughter, Robin R. Eisman (Philip) of Ellicott City, MD; brother, Carlton Sonny Casson of Trappe, MD; and grandchildren, Natalie, Lindsay and Daniel Hyatt.
