Gregory Wyatt

He was born Jan. 27, 1962, in Murray, Kentucky, to Dorothy Scott Wyatt and James Earl Wyatt.

Into retirement, his favorite pastimes included fishing, canoeing, hiking, and arrowhead hunting. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He was someone you could call in your time of need. He could fix just about anything and loved to help people whenever he could.

Carleen T. Belcher

Carleen T. Belcher slipped away peacefully on Oct. 15, 2020, surrounded by family at the Anna Mae Owens Residential Hospice House in Murray.

She was born Jan. 1, 1935, in Vandenburgh County, Indiana, to Carl and Elizabeth Timmel.

She married her best friend and love, Joseph Benjamin Belcher, on Jan. 27, 1953.

Carleen’s heart was always nearer to God in her garden than anywhere else on earth. She spent many years in her beautiful garden on Kentucky Lake. She also enjoyed knitting and would say that properly practiced knitting soothed the troubled soul.  

Mom is survived by her husband who misses her terribly; me, her daughter, Leslie Jill Barrett; two sons, Timothy Allan Belcher with his wife Tonie; and his brother, Bradford Joseph Belcher and fiancé Deborah Ramsey; her grandchildren, Carissa Pitsenbarger and husband Kenny, Hillary Belcher, Moriah Ramos, Michael Belcher and wife Megan, Lacey  Ventura and husband Jose, Jonathan Belcher and Maura, Jordan Belcher and Ellen Harris and Jake Bosquet; great-grandchildren, Courtney, Mokenzi, Mokayla, Rowen, Moriah Hope, Liam, Wyatt, Laurelin, Winter, Walker and Ruby June; her nephew, Ed Tardy and wife Connie; and her many friends in Murray and across the US.

Her parents, Carl and Elizabeth Timmel; her sister, Elizabeth (Bunny) Tardy; her grandson, Tobey Egstrom; and her daughter-in-law, Karen Belcher, are with her now.

Please join Sunday, May 9, 2021at 11 a.m. as we celebrate her life on the property of the Belcher Family Cemetery in Murray. Her interment will also be held and officiated by Butch Seargent. Springtime was my mother’s favorite time of year, so help us to celebrate her life. This will be a day of joy to see the beauty of the place where she called home for 46 years. If you want to bring flowers, my mother loved flowers or you can donate to our garden ‘Rise Again Garden Inc.’ and/or ‘Raising Chickens, who lay eggs, Inc.’ Transportation, once on the family’s property, will be provided, if needed. 

“Dear Friends and my Beloved family,

As I am getting older, I am becoming more forgetful, and it is possible that one day I might not know where I am or who I am or even more important who you are.

So, I wanted to say a nice clear-headed goodbye and thank you to everyone while I still have my wits, or at least still some of them, about me.

I have had an exceptionally good life and I hope none of you will be offended if I am confused later on. The real me inside here remembers each one of you very well. 

Carleen, Me Now loves you.”
