Mrs. Dianne Galbreath
Mrs. Dianne Wynn Galbreath, age 69, passed away peacefully at home on March 9, 2022, surrounded by her family, after an extended illness. Mrs. Galbreath was born on February 9, 1953, in Macon, GA. Having spent the majority of her formative years in Montgomery County, she considered herself a native of Mt. Vernon. She was a 1971 graduate of Montgomery County High School. Shortly after high school, she went to work at Mt. Vernon Drug Store where she was employed for twenty-seven years. During her time at the drug store, she left an impression on everyone she encountered because of her warm and caring personality, not to mention her cherry cokes.
Shortly after leaving the drug store, despite losing her hearing, she began running the service station in Alston, where they offered everything from gas and hotdogs to a killer variety of VHS rentals. Eventually, she found fulfillment as a full-time homemaker. She enjoyed spending time with her friends and children, not just her biological ones, watching old movies, riding four wheelers, going on shopping trips, and taking Griswold style vacations. Throughout her life and her varied interests, Dianne enjoyed spending time at the river with her husband and family, and she had a love for interior design, line dancing, bird watching, and working outside in her flowerbeds. In the years preceding her death, Dianne came to love and spend her time on Facebook — as she could communicate and keep up with all her friends and family despite not being able to hear or visit in person; make no mistake, she also loved Amazon Prime and Netflix. She was preceded in death by her mother, Artie Fay Sellers Wynn; father, John Albert Wynn; and 6 siblings, Raiford Thigpen, Etta Mae Argo, Lutrell Harrell, Eschol Thigpen, Peggy McCoy, Cathy Bean; and her favorite furbabies Buttons, Bear, and Toby.
She is survived by her devoted, yet thorn in her side husband of thirty-nine years, David Galbreath; two daughters, Brittany Galbreath and Lance Hartley and Katy Galbreath Moxley and husband Matthew, and three grandchildren Harland, Bailey Grace, and Elliett Rose (one could argue she loved them more than her own). They all reside in the community locally known as Galbreathville, located between Center and Alston. She is also survived by her sister Judy Bean of Ailey, and numerous nieces, nephews, family friends, and children whom she considered her own (you know who you are). Special thanks to her devoted nurse and friend Rhonda Heath of Lumber City. In lieu of flowers, Dianne would want you to do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness.
A memorial service was held at Galbreath Cemetery, Sunday, March 13, at 2:02 p.m. Dianne never was an early bird or ever on time.
