Agnes “Aggie” Mathilda Yard, 91, of Forestville, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at home in the care of her family. Aggie was born in Warren, Pennsylvania on August 27, 1927, to Swedish immigrant parents, the late Axel and Anna Carlson, and was one of seven siblings. She was very proud of her Swedish heritage retaining the Swedish language, recipes and the sturdy hard work ethic throughout her life. Babies, birds and candy were constant sources of joy during her life’s journey from sparse rural Pennsylvania to her nearly 70 years in Bristol. Shortly after her marriage to Alfred “Sonny” B. Yard Jr. on October 7, 1950, she moved to Bristol and began her family during the baby boom years. She and Sonny grew a family of four children and a local business, Forestville Machine & Tool, Inc., during those years. Following Sonny’s death in 1985, Aggie returned to the workforce to support her family. She loved “Yard” work and homemaking, especially mowing the lawn, raking leaves and gardening; with her daughters and granddaughters inheriting her love for baking and cooking. Her favorite music was country, with a side of crooners (Bennett, Sinatra, Martin). Recreational pastimes involved competitive family Scrabble, crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and binging on Tom Selleck shows. Aggie was also predeceased by her daughter Debra in 2014, and siblings Carl, Vernon, Lisa, Alice, Edith and Margit over the years. She is survived by children Dennis (Elizabeth) Yard of San Diego,CA, Diane (Jeffrey) Steeg and Kevin (Stephenie) Yard of Bristol; three grandchildren, Alex (Rachel) Steeg, Alisha (Kyle) Boucher and Sam Yard; and two bonus grandchildren, Billy Matthews and Antoni Matthews. The pride of her later life is great grandchild Hunter Boucher. She is further survived by her sister-in-law Linda Carlson of Lander, PA; and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank her caregivers Cheryl Collar and Linda Collins for their tender care of Mom. Private services will be held at a later date. A late life wish was to help the homeless. Donations to local homeless charities are encouraged.

So very sorry to hear of Aggie’s passing. I wish we could have seen her one more time. We used to visit Uncle Alf and Aunt Mary with my grandparents, Joe and Lida Yard. She was always was very kind to me, calling me Hon. I always thought the world of her.

To the family of "Auntie Aggie" as I used to call her. God bless your family and may you find solace in the Good Lord's promise that we will all meet together in paradise. She sure was a good person and always looked at the positive. Please cherish the good memories she gave you and God bless you all.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). Those who are raised to life on a restored paradise earth will have the prospect of never again being subjected to misery, sickness, and death (Revelation21:4). These and other comforting Bible verses and thoughts can be found at
