Obituary for Edna Marie Veasey Yarborough
Edna Marie (Veasey) Yarborough passed away on February 1, 2018. Edna was born on April 20, 1925 to James and Iowa Allen Hassett in Colgate, Alabama. Edna lived most of her early years in Leeds, Alabama. A lifetime member of Eastern Star, Chapter 22, Edna also attended business school at the age of 18 and worked in a piano store and as a cashier as a young woman. Edna married William Edwin Veasey on August 3, 1946. The couple purchased Talquin Lodge, a fish camp on Lake Talquin in Quincy, Florida where they relocated from Alabama in 1956. For more than twenty years they owned and operated the lodge, where Edna managed a cafe and cabin rentals for guests until the business was sold in 1983. Following Edwin’s death in 1980, Edna worked at the Quincy State Bank until retirement. Edna later remarried in 1989 to Julian Yarborough of Birmingham, Alabama. During their marriage of fourteen years, the couple split their residence between Edna’s home in Florida and her husband’s in Alabama.
Edna lived her 92 plus years to the fullest. She was strong, wise, and highly independent. She loved spending time with family and friends, crossword puzzles and shopping. She surprised everyone she met by her incredible memory and awareness until her last day. A shining light has gone out in our family and we will miss her dearly.
