Marceline Yates

Marceline Baringer Yates was born June 17, 1927, in Pamona, California, to John F Baringer and Angeline M Farrell Baringer. She passed away September 6, 2018, in Kalispell, Montana.

Shortly after her birth, she came to Montana when her parents returned to the family farm and ranch in the Hathaway Valley on the Yellowstone River. Marcy was the oldest of three siblings. She was raised on the farm and ranch and attended grade school in Hathaway. She graduated from Rosebud High School at the age of 16.

In the fall of 1944, she entered Montana State College, now Montana State University. In 1945 she met her life partner, John "Jack" William Yates, when he returned from World War II. Marcy and Jack were married in 1946. They moved to Havre, Montana, and made their family home in Havre where they raised their family. In the early 1960s, Marcy returned to school and earned her bachelors degree in elementary education from Northern Montana College, now Montana State University-Northern. She worked for the Havre Public Schools as a second- and third-grade teacher. Marcy received her Master of Education in 1974. She retired from teaching after serving the Havre schools for 29 years. Marcy and Jack were able to travel during their retirement visiting: England, Scotland, Wales, Australia, Italy - 50th anniversary of Allied invasion - and cruises of the West Indies, Caribbean, Panama Canal and Pacific. Her husband, Jack, passed away in 2004 shortly before their 58th wedding anniversary. She moved to Kalispell, Montana, in 2007 to be close to her children and their families.

Marcy is survived by her son, Spencer (Zonia) Yates, her daughter, Loree Martin, grandsons Jose (Shawna) Yates & Luke Martin, granddaughters: Anne Martin Gibling and Maria (Justin)Yates. She is also survived by eight great-grandchildren, her brother Jack (Jean) Baringer and her sister Beverly Wallace.
