Mary J. Yeardly  
Obituary Notice
Mary J. Russell was born in Ohio on January 8, 1839. She was the oldest of a family of ten children. In her twenty-seventh year, on December 24, she was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. Royal Yeardly. For many years Mr. and Mrs. Yeardley made their home in Mason county, Illinois. There were born to them during these years four children, two sons and two daughters, Oscar R., living in Illinois; Nellie G., died in 1903; James R. died in 1874, and Elizabeth M., of Oroville. In 1877 Mrs. Yeardley was called to mourn the death of her husband, and since that date has lived with her children. Twenty-one years ago "Grandma", as we called her familiarly, came to the Pacific coast with the Stansbury family. One year later they came to Oroville, being among the pioneer settlers of the town. For many years Mrs. Yeardley made her home with her youngest daughter, Mrs. F. L. Stansbury and consequently she was generally known here.
The departed was a member of the Baptist church in Illinois, and for years a faithful Sunday school teacher in her home church. In the early days of Oroville Mrs. Yeardly was very active in Sunday school work. She assisted her mother as one of the organizers of the first Sunday school of the village. During recent years Grandma's physical condition did not allow her to attend church services often, but whenever she came she was among those who found true joy in the sanctuary. Grandma Yeardly loved to read the Sunday school lessons, the Christian Herald, and the Bible. They were her spiritual food. In her daily conversation Mrs. Yeardley was quiet, unassuming and kind. She loved much, and was much loved in return.
She enjoyed health in a moderate degree until three weeks ago, when she was attacked by a sudden illness. A complication of ailments set in and caused much suffering. During these trying days her beloved daughter and family, with relatives and friends tenderly ministered to her needs, until on Sunday morning early when Grandma passed quietly away. She died in peace, and was ready to occupy the home prepared for her beyond. Grandma left to mourn her death two sisters living in Illinois; one son, Oscar. R., of Illinois; one daughter, Elizabeth M., of Oroville; fourteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, besides a multitude of friends.
The funeral services were held at the Stansbury home Sunday afternoon Rev. A. Bauman officiating. A large number of relatives and friends of the deceased were in attendance. Interment followed this service at the old Oroville cemetery.
