Misti was the first of four girls born on June 20 th , 1981, to Gerald Allan and Ruth Yarbrough in Fort Stockton, Texas. Misti graduated in 1999 from Carlsbad High School in Carlsbad, NM. Misti worked as scheduler at the Med Clinic on Clovis Airforce Base before her passing. On July 19th, 2002, Misti’s first love entered her life, her daughter Jaclyn Paige Yarbrough. On October 9 th , 2004, Allisyn Faith Yarbrough, her second (but equal) love was born. Misti loved to watch movies, spend time with her family and enjoyed the outdoors, especially swimming and camping. Misti was kind, hardworking, and humble. As the oldest of four daughters, she took care of all her sisters and acted as a mediator and very close confidant; always full of sound advice and never one to judge. Misti was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend; her absence will leave a void in all that loved her.
Misti is preceded in death by her aunt Annie Lankford.
