Emily Katherine Yeadon

Emily Katherine Yeadon

Emily Katherine Yeadon, 23, became one of God’s angels on Thursday, May 7, 2015 at the Lahey Hospital in Burlington, Massachusetts, surrounded by family and friends.

Born in Hartford, Connecticut on March 9, 1992, Emily grew up in Groton, Massachusetts. She was a 2010 graduate of Groton-Dunstable Regional High School and attended the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams. While at MCLA, she pledged to become a sister of the sorority, Pi Upsilon Omega, making her a forever member of the Pines Family. Her creative passion and love of the written word found her able to express herself through poetry, as well as sketch and collage, which she generously shared with others who needed a reminder that the world is ultimately a good place.

Music was as essential to Emily as the air she breathed. Her tastes ranged from Backstreet Boys to obscure alternative and garage bands. Emily was fearless when it came to fashion and design — her face to the world was ever changing and beautiful. No matter her hair color, or how trending her outfit and makeup may have been, the camera loved her from every angle. Emily had the gift of making wherever she was her home. She was close to her many aunts, uncles, and cousins — her brother, Sam, was her dearest ally and friend. Her friends and family will continue to celebrate her gifts and share her stories because she danced her way across so many hearts along the way.

Emily was the beloved daughter of Dan and Susan (Marshall); loving sister of Samuel Marshall Yeadon of Groton; granddaughter of Gloria Bomba of Berlin, Connecticut, Joan Menchin of Belmont, New Hampshire, and the late Richard Marshall, Fred Yeadon, and Robert Menchin. She was a niece of Linda and Tom Grzeika, Lenore and Francis Beebe, Paul and Jessica Marshall, Brian and Jane Yeadon, Barry and Pamela Yeadon, Warren and Lois Yeadon, Bonnie Pavone, and Jill and Mike Shaughnessy. She is also survived by many cousins and friends.

Sullivan Funeral Home, 43 Winn Street, Burlington, Massachusetts, on Monday, May 11 from 4-8 p.m. Funeral services will be held at the United Church of Christ Congregational, 6 Lexington Street, Burlington, Massachusetts on Tuesday, May 12 at 10 a.m., followed by interment in Pine Haven Cemetery, Burlington.
