Helen Louise Yingling

December 14, 1925 — June 24, 2017

Helen Louise McLeod Yingling, 91, of Searcy, Arkansas, was born December 14, 1925, in Bragg City, Missouri, and passed peacefully from this earth to her Heavenly home on June 24, 2017.  She was a member of the West Side Church of Christ.


Preceded in death by her parents, Ben and Della Brandon; her late husband Herman McLeod; her sisters, Ruth, Nancy, and Virginia, one brother; John Philip, and her daughter; Patricia Todd.


Survivors include her husband; Lewis Yingling, her children; Don McLeod and his wife, Sandy of Byhalia, Mississippi, Randy McLeod and his wife, Teresa, of Searcy, and Judy Burkett and her husband, Charles, of Memphis, Tennessee, eleven grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, and one great great-grandson.


“Helen” was a friend to all who came in contact with her, and a true servant.  She was active with her husband, Lewis, at Harding Place where they met, and together they planted and maintained a rose garden for all the residents to enjoy.  Her energy and spirit were contagious!  She was a true example of a Christian woman who loved her family and friends abundantly, and was known for her home-made pies and candy that she shared for all occasions.  Helen and Lewis shared the last years of her life traveling and taking care of each other.


Visitation will be at Searcy McEuen Funeral Home, located at 2616 S. Main, at 12:30 pm, July 1, 2017, with a Memorial Service to follow at 1:00 pm.


The family would like to give special thanks to Dr. Justus, Home Health, the rehabilitation staff at The Crossing, Searcy Hospice, and the caregivers at Home Instead.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the scholarship fund at Harding University.
