Mrs. Yarbrough died Thursday, July 16, at East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika.
A Chambers County native, Mrs. Yarbrough was born Feb. 12, 1919, the daughter of James W. and Rena Hildebrand Osborne. She was a member of Trinity Baptist Church, where she was not only a charter member but also their oldest living member, and she worked at Belk's in Roanoke from the time it opened until the day it closed. Mrs. Yarbrough wrote a community interest column for The Randolph Leader for several years and was an avid collector who loved a good yard sale, as evidenced by her home. She was a wonderful cook, and her grandsons, Tommy and Max, loved nothing more than to tell the other one that Nannie made them roast with rice and gravy.
Survivors include her son, Tim McDaniel (Mary) of Roanoke; daughter-in-law, Carolyn McDaniel of Roanoke; three grandchildren, Tommy Hicks (Shannon) of Roanoke, Max McDaniel (Beth) of Montgomery and Matt McDaniel of Roanoke; and great-grandchild, Anna Catherine McDaniel. Mrs. Yarbrough was preceded in death by her parents; first husband, Weymon Durell McDaniel; second husband, Hugh Price Yarbrough; and son, Mike McDaniel.
Pallbearers will be Fred Hill, Harvey McDow, Randy Gann, Rick Webb, Harold Cotter and Ken Morrison.
