Memories of her life lessons – her cooking, gardening, her work ethic and her deep faith - will live on in her 15 children, 30 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren.

I remember Mrs. Yawney from my teen years, about 45 years ago. She was such a kind, sweet and hardworking woman who had a lot of common sense. She was very hospitable. My heartfelt condolences go out to her family.
