Carol "CJ" Yeoman
Carol "CJ" passed away a few moments after 2:00 p.m., Monday afternoon, Oct. 7th. She fought valiantly to defeat her cancer but was not able to win the battle this time.

was elected Vice President of the Meyerland Area Democrats Club, serving eight terms in that role. Last year she was elected President of the Marilyn Estates Civic Association.
CJ worked tirelessly on the successful campaigns of Mayor Kathy Whitmire, DA Kim Ogg, Mayor Sylvester Turner and Representative Lizzzie Fletcher as well as many others.
CJ is survived by her husband Lynn Yeoman; mother Martha Moore; daughter Karen Dillon (husband Jeremy), sister Christy McBurnett (husband Robert), cousin Sharon Weiss (husband Jeff), and their children. CJ was preceded in death by her father Jacob A. Moore
and her brother Steven Moore.
