Wyatt, Aunt Sally
Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

Though the narrator of Flags in the Dust and both Benbows call her "Aunt Sally," there is no sign of any nieces or nephews (168). She is the neighbor and old family friend who stays with Narcissa while Horace is in France. The narrator calls her "a good old soul, but she lived much in the past, shutting her intelligence with a bland finality to anything which had occurred since 1901" (168).
