Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Jack Yeldell, 89, passed away on July 30, 2017 in Mexia. Funeral services will be 2 PM, Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at First Baptist Church with Rev. Ed Spivey and Rev. Greg Barmer officiating.

Jack was born September 1, 1927 in Freestone County, Texas to George A'Clark and Lucy A. Calame Yeldell. He worked for Diamond Alkali, forerunner of Diamond Shamrock for 16 years, prior to retiring from the US Postal Service after 22 years as a mail carrier. Jack was also a Rancher, something he really enjoyed. He was no stranger to work and believed in doing any job to the best of his ability; good work ethic was important to him.

Jack’s life revolved around his love for the Lord and family. He was a strong Christian, loved to witness to others and spent many years teaching Sunday School. He loved to spend time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was a longtime active member of the First Baptist Church in Mexia.

Jack never met a stranger, he was never at a loss of words when it came to talking with people. Visiting with people was probably one of his favorite hobbies.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and daughter, Jacqueline Lynn Yeldell in March of 1965.

Jack is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Hilda Yeldell of Mexia; children, Stephen Yeldell and wife, Melissa of Caldwell, Paul Yeldell of Mexia, Lisa Barmer and husband, Greg of Washington, NC and Leslie Black and husband, Russell of Wortham; 12 grandchildren, Sarah Jenkins and husband, Lance, Andrew Barmer, Jaclyn, Jayce, Jessica and Jon Ross Black, Evan Yeldell, Lauren and Emily Yeldell and Paige, Hannah and Sophie Yeldell; and sister, Elizabeth Gruver of Auburn, AL.
