My Most Frightening Encounter


I was the firstborn to James and Flora Yarborough. John was my only sibling,  born four years after me. Although I was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1942, I lived with my family in Jackson, Mississippi, until I went to college in Oklahoma for one year. I returned to Jackson to finish college before working and then attending graduate school in Virginia. I went to  Puerto Rico for six years, where I married a minister and had two children. We moved to Georgia and then Florida where our third child was born. My husband passed away three years ago, after we had been married forty-three years. My three children have given me eight grandchildren, three of which live in Texas, two in Tennessee and three in Bradenton, Florida, where I live.
