Alene "Aly" L. Yarnall, 62, of Williamsburg, passed away on July 8, 2012.
Aly was employed by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for over fifteen years, serving as a school group interpreter, military program interpreter, orientation interpreter, and trades interpreter in historic Williamsburg, VA. She retired in February 2012.
A graduate of Temple University, Aly held a degree in English, was a connoisseur of fine food, a lover of the theater and opera, and loved sight-seeing at various historical sites. She was a positive role model for many.
She is survived by her brother, Norman Yarnall (Sandra) of PA, and her loving best friends, Barbara Scherer and Pamela Blount.
A celebration of Aly's life will be held at a later date in Colonial Williamsburg. Online condolences may be expressed at www.nelsencares.com.
