|On March 21, 1979, Myrtle Frazier Yeager, wife of Ira L. Yeager, moved from her earthly house to “a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
Mrs. Yeager was born in Minden, Louisiana on March 7, 1908, but spent most of her life in Monroe, Louisiana. She was married to the late Rev. Ira L. Yeager February 10, 1969. This union was a very happy and satisfying companionship. Mrs. Yeager was a member of the Stone Avenue Methodist Protestant Church for more than thirty-five years.
As a member of the church, she was very active in its program until her health failed almost four years ago. She was president of the Women’s Society, taught in the Sunday School, and attended regularly the prayer meetings and regular worship services.
She exemplified in her life those virtues which characterize a servant of God and man. Without question those who knew her saw a vital personal faith in a redemptive Lord of love. Her courageous spirit even during her illness was an example to those who came her way. She was an outgoing person and loved “doing things” for others as reflected in her care for her husband, her friends, and little children. Yes, she has been a blessing and a great friend to so many of God’s people.
I like to think of her today as among those around the throne singing the praises of the Christ and enjoying the blessings prepared for those who walk here with the Lord. She was faithful to her trust, even unto death.
