OGDEN, Utah - MarLew Buck Young, born on September 5, 1942, to Lewis and Margaret Hawes in American Falls, Idaho, passed away on November 25, 2012, in Ogden, Utah. She was the older sister and protector of her sister, Pam, and brother, Russell. In her earlier years, she enjoyed working at Rexall Drugstore run by her Grandpa Fuller, a pharmacist.
She married Brent Buck on October 2, 1958. Together they had 10 children: Yvette (twins) Brent, Brant, Michelle, Russell Troy, Corey (twins), Shane, Shawn, Pamela and Scott. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest source of satisfaction and happiness. They later divorced but remained good friends.
On June 18, 1985, she married Ronald Young and they resided in Nampa, Idaho. Together they built and maintained a successful carpet-cleaning business, Northwest Carpet Cleaning. As a Boise State fan, she was proud of the fact that they were able to clean the famous Boise State "Blue Turf."
She had a gift of making everything around her beautiful. She loved having her hair and make-up done, and always looked her best. She also enjoyed crafts, sewing, crocheting and decorating. She was an excellent cook.
Her defining characteristic was her ability to care for and show Christ-like love to the people she associated with. As a CNA, she cared for elderly people so they could live their remaining days in the comfort of home and family.
She was affectionately known as Grandma Lew and enjoyed the company of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
MarLew is survived by her husband, Roger Halverson; children, Michelle (Richard) Tesch, Corey (Tami) Buck, Shane Buck, Pamela Perna, and Scott Buck; 13 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. MarLew was preceded in death by her father, Lewis, and mother, Margaret, brother, Russell, husband, Ronald Young, children, Yvette, Brent, Brant and Shawn, all as infants, and son, Russell Troy, who died at the age of 19.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, December 1, 2012, at noon at the LDS Church, 1056 West 4400 South, Riverdale, Utah.
