Obituary Condolences

Longtime travel consultant
Mara E. Young, 67, passed away Monday, Feb. 4, 2008, at Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso, Texas. She was born July 17, 1940, in Tripoli, Libya, to Giuseppe and Rita (Favero) Eserina from Vicenza, Italy, which she considered her hometown. She married Harry Edward Young Aug. 6, 1959, in Tripoli, Libya. Mara and her husband moved to the Alamogordo area in 1978, where they worked together as travel consultants at First Travel Center. She enjoyed traveling to different countries, experiencing and seeing the world. She was a retired seamstress and a great cook who enjoyed the simple things in life, such as spending time in her garden, a good cup of espresso or just being out in the sun.
She was a member of St. Jude Mission Catholic Church and Rosary Society and actively practiced her faith through her actions.
She was a devoted wife and mother, whose kindness, thoughtfulness, caring, love and strength embodied the heart and soul of the family. This carried through as a grandmother as she helped in the raising of her grandson and as a person touching the lives of many.
Survivors include her husband of 47 years, Harry, of the family home; sons Jeffrey Young, of Caddo Mills, Texas, Dennis Young, of Tularosa, and Mark Young, of Dallas; grandchildren Shelley Young, of San Francisco, and Garrett Young, of Tularosa, who she helped raise; and her sister, Edna Miller, of Tucson, Ariz.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and brother Eros Eserina.
A Rosary will be recited by the St. Jude Rosary Society at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, 2008, at St Jude Mission. A memorial Mass will follow at 10 a.m., with Father Wayne D. Herpin, S.J., celebrant. 
Should anyone desire, please make donations to the St Jude Mission building fund.
