Marianne Yeatts Pike, 53, of Paradise, Texas passed away Friday, January 15, 2016 at home. A private memorial service will be held to celebrate her life.
Marianne was born January 5, 1963 to Marilyn (Givins) and Connie Mack Yeatts. She married Charlie Wayne Pike on March 25, 1983. Shortly after, she started her labor and delivery nursing career of twenty-three years. During that time, she also began her family, the most important blessing in her life. Her children brought many others into the Pike home, whom Marianne adored, fed and embraced. Her love of cooking, creating and playing spread joy and love to anyone and everyone on her path, especially her immediate and extended family.
She is survived by her husband of thirty-two years, Charlie; mother Marilyn Johnson; sisters Sherri Jones and Amy Warren; brother Mark Yeatts; children Christopher Pike and wife Erin, Mathew Pike and wife Shanna, Ashley Hall and husband Wes, and Nick Pike and wife Hanna; and grandchildren Macie, Macklyn, Weston and Rhett Pike.
She was preceded in death by her father.
