The world has lost a gentle and loving woman and teacher. I had Mrs Young for 3rd Grade at West End School and loved her very much. Hoping that you as her family will find comfort in knowing that she was a great lady. In sympathy.

Mrs. Young taught myself in the third grade at West End and both of my children, Renee and Jason Pedranti, in the first grade! She was unique, very professional and taught me the most beautiful cursive writing that I still get compliments on to this day. Mrs. Young was loved, respected and will never be forgotten. My condolences to her family and friends.
My sincere sympathy,
