May 16, 1927 - April 30, 2020
Virginia was one of seven children born to Houston and Jackie Holt Askew on May 16, 1927. She was the devoted wife of Sam Young. Together they raised four children, Terry, Bobby, Wayne and Phyllis. They founded and operated Young Welding Supply, Inc. in Sheffield, Alabama. She was a faithful member of Cox Boulevard Church Of Christ. Virginia was a true child of God. She was a strong, hard working caring woman. She loved her church family and checked on them daily. Her favorite book to read was the Bible. She also loved to sing the glorious hymns of old. She lived her life glorifying The Lord. She was known for sending cards to anyone who needed to be uplifted.
Preceding Virginia in death were her parents: her husband, Sam: son, Terry; brothers, Houston, Jack and Earl Askew; sisters Mary Elizabeth Askew and Imogene Roberts: son-in-law James Hall.
Survivors include her sons Bobby Young (Ann) of Killen, AL, Wayne Young (Debby) of St Augustine, FL; daughter, Phyllis Hall of Muscle Shoals, AL: sister Jane Sanchez of San Juan Capistrano, CA; granddaughters Renee Husfeld (Russell) and Melody Reyes (Jorge) and grandsons Robby Young (Heather) and Dane Taylor (Kimra); twelve great grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
