Polly Ann Anderson Yates

Polly Ann Anderson Yates, 89, of Cabot went to be with the Lord on May 5, 2014. She was born October 13, 1924 to the late Mr. and Mrs. R.A. Anderson in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, James M. Yates of Cabot; one son, Richard A. Yates; one daughter, Janet A. Yates Strickland, one grandson, Thomas Yates Jr.; one great grandson, Cole Yates, and one great grand daughter, Krishauna Pye all of Cabot.
She is survived by four sons, Wilbur L. Yates, James O. Yates, Thomas O. Yates, and William A. Yates all of Cabot. She had numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grand children.
Polly loved her family dearly. She was a member of Concord Methodist Church. She was very patriotic being a military wife, mother, and grandmother. If you spoke with her, it would not be long and she would be bragging on one of her many children or grandchildren. She was very proud Christian, Parent, Grandparent, American, and Hogs fan. If you were in earshot and the hogs won you could hear her ringing the back porch bell. She was a proud graduate of Central High Little Rock, Arkansas and was a 4 H Leader/parent. Her children went to school at Midway (south of Cabot) and Cabot High in which she was active supporter and fundraiser. She loved any reason to gather and cook for her family. Polly was an avid gardener who loved to can, quilt, sew, crochet, dance, laugh, and Dr. Pepper!!! She was a woman who wanted to know where she came from, learning early in life she was adopted which fed her ambition to know her family roots along with her husbands, and she loved to work on her families trees, which became her passion.
There will be a Celebration of Life held Monday, May 12th at 12:00 p.m. at Concord United Methodist Church in Furlow, 150 Concord Church Road, Lonoke, Arkansas 72086. Lunch will be provided following the services.

I had the pleasure of meeting her only one time and that was at her home on Easter 1999. My husband and I came with our granddaughter Summer and her husband Billy. She welcomed us to her home as if she had known us all our lives. I was especially impressed with her love for all of her large family. Part of this care was shown by the huge amount of family records she had researched and gathered into notebooks. I only wish I had gotten to spend more time with this remarkable lady.
