Christy Yardley Medical Expenses

$24,335 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 296 people in 23 months
Created July 29, 2017
On Friday July 28, Christy Yardley, our beautiful, loving, sweet wife, mother, sister, and daughter,  passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from complications of a minor surgery she had. We are heartbroken and shocked. We are also very grateful for the love and support that has been sent towards her husband Eric and their four children. Christy was a very special person who cared about and loved all those she knew. She gave endlessly of herself to her family, students, and anyone else she saw was in need of assistance.  Christy was a talented and gifted elementary teacher and was teacher of the year last year at her school. She will be missed dearly by so many but we know she is with her loved ones and we will be together again.

This gofundme account is set up to help pay for the funeral and medical expenses.  Any excess funds will go toward meeting the needs of her children at this very difficult time of their lives.

CHRISTY GOODMAN YARDLEY
1977-2017

Christy Goodman Yardley was born January 6, 1977 in Provo, Utah to Steven Harold (Wendy) and Claudia Dayton Goodman. She married Eric Yardley, the love of her life, on April 23, 1998 in the Salt Lake Temple. They have 4 children - Alex (17), Katelyn (15), Jacie (13), and Brooklyn (10). Christy enhanced the strengths of Eric and each of their children and ignited their confidence and ability to succeed. She and Eric made a great team.

Christy unexpectedly passed away on Friday, July 28, 2017 in Provo, Utah, due to complications following surgery. She is survived by her loving husband, children, parents, siblings: Shawn (Cheryl), Melissa (Slate) Baker, Paul (Mari), Julianne (Jared) Webber, Marilee (Matt) Webb, Andrea (Mark) Ipson, Mark (Misty), and Aimee (Ken) Katschke; and grandmothers: Helen Dayton and Naomi Goodman. Three siblings: David, Peter, and LeAnne, as well as her grandfathers preceded her in death.

Capturing the essence of Christy, Eric wrote to her on her last birthday: "You touch and brighten the lives of all who know you. You've accomplished a lot in your life. You've lived all over the states, lived in Russia and Taiwan, performed music for thousands all over the world, sung privately for Prophets, the Pope, and government dignitaries, graduated magna cum laude from BYU, taught hundreds of children here and abroad, been honored as Teacher of the Year among other awards, recorded a CD, raised four amazing kids, served your Church faithfully from primary president to nursery leader, written children's books and music, run races all over the U.S., helped me through school and put up with me for nineteen years (the hardest), built and sold your dream home, survived terrible tragedies, had ups and many downs, stayed faithful, positive, and uplifting through it all, and the list goes on. But no one would know any of this, and many don't because you care more about others than yourself. I love you!"

Christy was beloved by all who knew her. She will be greatly missed. She had the amazing ability to reach out and bind everyone together in love. Her spirituality was deep. As her name speaks, she was very near to Christ.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, August 5 at the Oak Hills 6th Ward Chapel, 1960 N 1500 E, Provo, Utah at 11:00 am, preceded by a viewing from 9:00 to 10:30 am. There will also be a viewing the evening before on Friday, August 4 from 7:00-9:00 pm at the same location.

The family wishes to thank loved ones and friends for the rich outpouring of love, faith, and contributions on Christy's and their behalf. A gofundme account has been set up for those who would like to contribute toward funeral and medical expenses and Christy's husband and children. gf.me/u/bnkbt8.
