Mary Ellen YOUNG Obituary
Sept. 27, 1930 - Aug. 12, 2018Mary Ellen (Petek) Young, 87, born in Billings, MT, died peacefully at her home in Sierra Madre, CA, where she had lived since 1958, from complications following a stroke. She grew up in Pasadena, attended St. Elizabeth, St. Andrew HS and John Muir JC. She is predeceased by her beloved husband of nearly 52 years William J. Young, infant daughter Bridget and three brothers. Mary Ellen, also known as "Mellie" is survived by sister Kathleen Purner, brother Tony Petek, 8 children (spouses), Mary Therese Gallo (Greg), Bernadette Pulone (Chris), Martin Young (Lisa), Matthew Young (Sue), Sheila Dufresne (Chris), Monica Meyer (Mike), Kristin Godby (Paul) and William Young, 21 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
