Lydia B. Yarnell, 92, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 28, 2021, at her home. Born in Independence, LA, she was the daughter of the late Ory Bergeron and the late Louise (Gary) Bergeron.

Lydia enjoyed making silk flower arrangements and was a skilled seamstress. She crafted many draperies and slip covers for furniture. She tagged along on boating trips with her husband, but really enjoyed travelling in their RV across North America, and she was sure to collect a spoon in every state and province they stopped. Lydia was a member and the First Lady of the Penn Coachman Club as well as a member of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority where she participated in their fundraising ventures.

She loved her family and cherished all the time she was able to spend with them.

Herr, Heather Yarnell, Heather Hoover and Nicholas Duffy, seven great-grandchildren; Sean, Adam and Aiden Yarnell, BaiLee and Anaiah Herr, and Chloe and Brandon Fulcher. She is also survived by a brother, Jimmy Bergeron.

Dear Yarnell Family,
Our deepest condolences for your loss of Lydia.  Our parents, Jean and Oscar Petters always had fond memories of the years they spent traveling together in their RV’s, exploring America with Harold and Lydia, as well as the business ties that Oscar and Harold had.  Jean is still alive at 93, and fondly remembers them both, but was unable to attend today.  May you rejoice her life and remember the laughter they both used to share!

Was so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing.  I know it’s hard, but hope you find peace knowing that she is no longer suffering and has been made whole again.  Her and Jr. were so close and he always spoke so highly of her – he loved his older sister!  I know that they’re rejoicing in Heaven with all the angels watching over all of us until we meet again.
