Mary was born the daughter of Rogan and Virginia (Merriett) Campbell on April 9, 1938 in Los Angeles, California. She met her husband Edward Yearack on a blind date that was arranged by her Mother and Ed’s half-brother Ralph. Ed was in California after his discharge from the service. Following a nine month courtship they married in Panorama City, California on March 21, 1959 and they then returned to Marion. Life was much different for Mary here than what she was accustomed to in California. Together they were blessed to share almost 54 years of marriage until his death on January 26, 2013. She had been a dedicated wife and caregiver to her husband.
Mary attended Marion Second Baptist Church, and was always very active in her church, she loved her church family. She enjoyed gardening and loved to cook and bake. As a family they took many trips across the country to visit family, spending this time with her family was very important to her. Mary adored her grandchildren and she loved to shop. She always put the needs of others before her own.
