OBITUARY ~ GRACE YOUNG

Grace Belle YOUNG, daughter of Lewis Cass and Nancy Jane KNIGHT, was born January 13, 1890, in the rural Redding area, and peacefully departed this life March 27, 1986, at the Clearview Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa. She was 96 years, two months and 14 days old at the time of her passing.

Grace received her education in the schools of Ringgold County and attended summer school at Garden Grove, Iowa. As a young woman, she followed a deep religious faith, accepted Christ and was baptized and received into the fellowship of the Advent Christian Church at Hickory Grove. She later transferred her membership to the First Baptist Church in Mount Ayr where she served at different times in an official capacity as church clerk and Deaconess. She remained faithful to her church as long as her health permitted.

On July 23, 1908 she was united in marriage to Timon Ocon YOUNG. They established their home in Garden Grove, later moving to the Mount Ayr area. To this union eight children were born.

Grace was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Timon, and two daughters, Vivian and Iona.

Left to cherish her memory are her children - George and his wife, Wilma, of Salem, Oregon; Cecil and his wife, Pauline, of Philomath, Oregon; Russell and his wife, Leonora of Landers, California; Gerald and his wife, Luella, of Mount Ayr, Iowa; Wayland and his wife, Helen, of Philomath, Oregon; and Dorothy SEEVER and her husband, John, of Tualatin, Oregon.

She has 26 grandchildren, 59 great-grandchildren and 10 great-great-grandchildren. Also surviving is one sister-in-law, Mrs. Ray KNIGHT of Lamoni, Iowa, and many nieces and nephews.

Grace was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her greatest joy was her children and grandchildren. She received great pleasure from watching birds and tending flowers in her garden.

"She was different, she was special
Unique in a thousand ways,
She was giving, she was loving
And we'll miss her all our days."

Services were held March 31, 1986 from the Wilson-Watson Funeral Home, Mount Ayr, Iowa, conducted by Rev. Norman NOBLE. Music was provided by Mrs. Rollin NOBLE and Mrs. Francis WILLIS. Interment was made at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Iowa.
