Virginia Young Heard

Cocoa Beach - Virginia Young Heard, 63, passed away unexpectedly on the morning of 11 November 2019 at Cape Canaveral Hospital in Cocoa Beach, FL with her husband of 37 years at her side. Virginia was born 12 May 1956 in El Paso TX (Fort Bliss) to LtCol Gordon and Carolyn Young and became an official "Army Brat". She was preceded in death by her wonderful parents. Virginia became an official "Air Force Wife" upon marriage to LtCol Hampton (Hamp) Heard in Alexandria LA (England AFB) 13 November 1982. While stationed at many Air Force Bases in the US and overseas, Virginia, Hamp and daughter, Carolyn, made many friends and memories. Hamp and Virginia retired from the Air Force in 1997 and moved to Cocoa Beach in 1999. Virginia was always a very supportive wife, mother and "Grammy". She was very proud of the accomplishments of her family, daughter, Carolyn and her husband (Stephen) Szabo of Melbourne FL. Virginia adored her three grandchildren: Katie Grace, Andy, and Miss Ellie. Virginia enjoyed cooking. She valued the important bonding time that comes with sharing meals and traditions with family and friends. She loved baking and shopping with her granddaughters and watching her grandson fish, "He can catch a fish in a ditch". That is true! Virginia leaves behind: sisters, Susan (Pat) Brazan, Julie (Melvin) Gautreau, Gerri Young and brother, James (Tanya) Young, sister in law Melinda "Nina" (Jerry) Koethe, and nephews, Alex (Lauren) Brazan, Michael (Zoe) Brazan, Morgan (Aprillynn) Gautreau and Josh Chevalier.
