She loved serving her church as secretary and a member of the choir at Bethel Baptist.

She was preceded in death by her parents Nezzie and Estes Yarber; and brother Rodney Eugene “Ronnie” Yarber.

She is survived by her husband Mitchell Robertson of Laurel; sisters Merdell Thomas and Drennis (Odell) McDonald of Sandersville; and a host of nieces and nephews.
