Hasty, Sr., former Representative and Senator from the area and parents Joseph and Laura Jane Hester Wyatt and beloved sister Jewell Wyatt Bannister. Mrs. Hasty retired from the Cherokee County School System after teaching thirty-five years in Ball Ground, Hickory Flat and Canton elementary schools. She loved being with her family especially the grandchildren and more recently the great-grandchildren. As a member of the First Baptist Church of Canton she enjoyed being with members of the Joy Sunday School Class, her Prayer Circle, and the Laurel Garden Club. She was a faithful believer in the Baptist Mission Union and while active always made prayer for missionaries a special part of her day.

After retirement, she and her husband enjoyed traveling and especially hosting tours of teachers to Europe.
