August 30, 1955 - July 30, 2021
Marianne Yackee Howell, also lovingly known as “Mary,” and “Yanne,” left this life surrounded by her loving family in the early hours of July 30, 2021, at the age of 65. A celebration of life will be held at Central Baptist Church Argo, 8762 Gadsden Highway Trussville, Al Saturday August 21, 2021, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. Marianne is survived by her husband of more than 40 years, Don, her daughter Cara Howell (Gary Sprague) and her stepdaughter Donna Yardley (Marty). She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Megan Yardley, Mike Howell (Katie), Matt Howell (Becca), Samantha Dopp (Tyler) and Sydney Sprague. From the Yackee tribe, Marianne leaves behind her three brothers, Buddy, Bobby (Diane), and Billy (Nona). In addition to her immediate family, she leaves behind an incredible extended family including her greatgrandchildren, nephews and niece, cousins and the many, many, many wonderful friends she made along the way. She is preceded in death by her parents Burt and Margaret Yackee, her grandson, Cory Yardley, her stepson Dan Howell, and many others, both human and animal, that she loved dearly throughout her life. Marianne was a die-hard Alabama Crimson Tide fan, which made the Iron Bowl an amusing adventure each year as she was insane enough to fall in love with and marry an Auburn Tigers fan. Her love of the Tide ran deep. Marianne was pure sweetness as nearly everyone who ever met her can attest. Her infectious smile and adorable cackle made everyone feel at ease. She had a feisty side and a sarcastic sense of humor which she passed on to her loving daughter, much to her everlasting dismay. Marianne was a mentor, a friend, a confidante and one of the strongest women you would ever meet. She faced her last days with grace and courage and we couldn’t be prouder of her. She was one-of-a-kind and she will Forever Be Missed.
