Joy Yarbrough, 70, of Eatonton passed away peacefully at her residence on July 15, 2022. She was born in Sandersville, Ga. and moved to Eatonton when she was a small child. Joy graduated from Putnam County High School in 1970 and attended nursing school thereafter, where she became a licensed practical nurse. She worked at Central State Hospital for several years before becoming a floral designer.

Her father, Mr. Henry Yarbrough owned and operated Yarbrough Jewelry store next to the flower shop and The Pex Theater for over 40 years before his passing in 2005.
