    Some people shout from the housetop their good works, but Elsie did hers in a sweet, quiet way. Always willing to help, at times, when I am sure she didn’t feel well. She was a dear, precious friend to me. She will be missed by all who had the privilege to know her. Praying God will surround the family with peace and comfort in the days and weeks ahead. Love you.

    Nannie Young was one of the kindest,
    Big hearted, beautiful ladies I have met.
    So meek…so mild. Being around her was a joy
    that cannot be explained! I fell in love with
    Nannie Y. the first time I met her when my
    Precious daughter, Staci Rai, fell in love with
    Michael Young, one of NANNIE Y.’s grandson’s.
    What an astounding day for Heaven when
    Nannie Y. went home 🕊
    I love you and so glad that we got to be together on our precious Ollie’s (1 of Nannie Y.’s Great
    Grandson’s) 7th Birthday Party just 3 Saturday’s ago. So glad we got to get in our chatting😊
    R.I.P. sweet lady. Sweet friend 🕊

    This is the close of an era of a great couple, Lyle and Elsie Young. Mrs. Young was certainly a Fine Lady, well respected and a great person. She and Lyle created a wonderful family together. She will be missed, but the genuineness of this couple lives on in their children.
