Ms Young has always been and will always be remembered as an outstanding mother, a wonderful neighbor, a beautiful mentor and an inspiration to all who came in her presence. I am thankful for many years as her neighbor and all the love she gave to me and my children. May God hold you closely, for you surely earned your wings on earth. With love and prayers, Mildred Kirven

Miss Myrtle, as her son in law called her-was one of my favorite people on the face of the earth-she was able to give so much love and compassion to me that I wanted to see her way more often than I had a chance-I think that she changed my life in a very positive way-will miss her so much. My condolences to her family and friends-

I worked with Mrs. Young at East Texas Chest for a while as a nurse aide. She was the sweetest person and kept me laughing. She was also very comical. This was 4? years ago and I have NEVER forgotten her. What a joy!
