Mrs. Betty Young
Betty served as Women Circle Leader, Sunday School teacher, President of the Women of the Church, member of the Flora Halliday Bible Study and along with Jim they led the high school Young Peoples Group for many years with several members you all know, like Lib Divver and John Hunt. She was constantly involved with projects that the church took on. She always helped with the Christmas pageant; frequently making costumes and providing props. One year she even had her son Louis bring and hold a real lamb from their farm in the pageant. Her friendly welcoming smile is frequently mentioned by visiting guests at Young Memorial.
She always makes an effort to meet new faces and to get to know them. Even at 96 years old, she remembers names and is a wealth of knowledge of the history of Young Memorial. Being the oldest living member of Young Memorial, she is like a matriarch and is loved by all.
She will be missed as an every week member, but we hope to see her back here at Young Memorial on frequent visits.
We love you!!
