Eva June "Midge" Young
June 18, 1925 - September 14, 2016
Eva June "Midge" was born on June 18, 1925 in Atwater, California. She was the second of three daughters born to Rupert Dewey (Cy) and Cora Stanton Perkins. The Family moved to Churn Creek Bottom in Redding, CA. Midge graduated from Shasta High School in 1943 and attended nurses training in the Cadet nursing program during WWII at O'Conner Sanitarium in San Jose, CA and graduated in 1946. She married Myron Young on June 12, 1947 in Red Bluff, CA. In 1954, they moved to McArthur, CA with three of their children Dana, Wanda and Ruth. Her fourth child, Paul was born while they lived at McArthur. Midge was a housewife, mother and worked part time as an RN for a local doctor's office.
In 1969, the family moved to Nampa, ID where they ran the Handi Grocery Store on Highway 20/26 north of Nampa. They closed the store on Christmas Eve of 1977 and Midge went back to nursing, working as a surgical recovery nurse at Mercy Medical Center. She retired to part time in August 1990, retiring completely in 1993. Midge was known as the singing nurse and was employee of the year while working at Mercy. She enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening and her grand and great grandchildren.
Midge was active in the Caldwell First Christian Church until she quit driving and then she attended the Franklin Community Church.
Midge was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years Myron in 2000. She is survived by her children; Dana & Nu Young of Nampa, Wanda & Jim Couch of Payette, Ruth & Glen Hasenyager and Paul & Malinda Young of Meridian.
