Patricia Ann Yearby Umesi, better known as “Pat” Yearby and “Trish,” was a beautiful distinguished woman with the utmost level of intelligence granted by her Creator. She loved Jesus Christ and his Father Jehovah, God almighty from the depth of her heart and soul.
She was born June 16, 1961, in Natchez, the fifth child born to the Rev. William Yearby Sr. and Willie Mae Yearby. (Trish) accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior a number of years ago. She became a mighty witness for Christ. She had a beautiful, charming personality that everyone loved.
Trish was very kind hearted. She held her family in the highest esteem, with love, compassion and consideration. She had a beautiful smile that would brighten any dark room. She was so upbeat at all times. If you called her on the telephone, her answering from the other end was as if someone was giving you a big prize. She was a class act that could never be duplicated. Oh! How she loved her children, Chimme and Kaushma and her loving husband, Chime.
She leaves to cherish her memory a devoted loving husband; two charming, loving and kind sons; four sisters, Cynthia Ann Yearby of Aurora, Colo., Linda Stephey and husband, Claude, of Green Valley, Colo., Catherine Olugbani and husband, Kamoru, of Norcross, Ga., and Diana Bernard and husband, Phillip, of Frisco, Texas; three brothers, William Yearby III and wife, April, of Fort Worth, Texas, George Yearby and wife, Sandra, of Lawrenceville, Ga., and Troy Yearby and Rita Dudley of Norcross; four nieces, Shasity Chicos and husband, John, of Aurora, Tranesha Holiday, Ashley Thomas, Jalyn Ignot, Leola Goldstein and Alajah Yearby; nine nephews, Courtney Yearby, Brandon Yearby, Bobby C. Henley Jr., Rasheed Anifowoshe, George Thomas, Johnathan Henley, Caleb Henley, Jamal Shannon and Christopher Donte Yearby Goldstein; five great-nephews, Johnathan Dillon, Jacob, Joshua Adam, Joseph Chicos and Razhawn Marquette William Yearby; three great-nieces, Juliana and Justinna Chicos and Razeyana Yearby; five aunts; three uncles; and a number of loving family and friends.
