Mary Helen Young

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mary Helen Young who passed away peacefully in her sleep on June 10, 2018 at the age of 90 (in the home of her son Eric, whom she was living with during her final years).

Born January 16, 1928 Mary was the oldest of three girls born to Jessie and Monica Poston of Carrollton, Georgia.

Mary was a Wife, Mother and Grandmother. As a wife she helped her husband Eugene establish and run several successful businesses while raising their sons. Eugene and Mary enjoyed spending time with family and friends as Mary nourished the people around her with love and faith. A devoted and proud mother, it was her delight when both her sons graduated college. She was always talking about her boys and their accomplishments.

Kind, helping and caring, Mary truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures and was always supporting family and friends.

Mary was preceded in death by her loving husband Eugene and siblings Clara Durr and Jeanette Perry. She leaves behind her sons Eugene Jr and Eric, grandson Eric Jr, Tamika Kelly and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

She was laid to rest next to her beloved husband Eugene at Bonney-Watson Washington Memorial Park in SeaTac, WA on June 13, 2018.
