  • Charles Talbot Yarbrough, 89, Carthage, Mo., passed away Friday, July 13, 2012 at St. Luke’s Caring Center, Carthage, Mo.

    He was born Aug. 3, 1922 in Valdosta, Ga., to the late William Penn and Mamie (Wallace) Yarbrough.

    Following college, Charles served in the U.S. Army in the South Pacific during WWII. On July 28, 1946, Charles married Mary Lou Richardson, and they made their home in Carthage.

    Charles’s career included a career at Carthage Marble, and later he served as President of Locarni Marble until his retirement.

    Most important to Charles was his strong faith, including his service on the vestry at Grace Episcopal Church.

    The St. Louis Cardinals and golfing were two of his favorite pastimes, but nothing gave him greater joy and pride than his daughters; sons-in-law; grandchildren; and his great-grandchildren.

    Charles was a member of the Carthage Rotary as well as the Carthage Music Club. He appeared in lead roles in “South Pacific”; “My Fair Lady”; and as Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music.”

    Surviving Charles is his wife, Mary Lou of their home; his daughters, Paula Beth (Tom) Agan and Mary Martha (Mike) Schmidt, both of Overland Park, Kan.; granddaughters, Ashley, Courtney and Meredith; and great-grandchildren, Hayley, Katelyn, Braden, and Logan.

    The service and internment, conducted by Fr. Steve Wilson, will be at Grace Episcopal Church and Columbarium on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 10:30 a.m., with visitation following in the Commons Room of the church.

    In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Grace Episcopal Church Columbarium Garden.

    Services are under direction of Knell Mortuary, Carthage, Mo. Online condolences may be expressed at www.knellmortuary.com.
