Lucienne "Lou" Marie Young

24 September, 194720 March, 2021

It is with broken hearts we say goodbye to our loving Lucienne. ‘Lou’ was called to glory on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at the age of 73. She is now at peace in the presence of the Lord. She leaves behind her dearly beloved husband, Al, her sister Theresa Wilson and brother Jean Cormier both of Hamilton as well as sisters and brother in New Brunswick. We are so thankful for the excellent care provided by her brother, Michel, who went far beyond the call of duty to help Al in this difficult time. She also leaves behind Al’s daughter, Tania, her brother in law, Gerry (Claire, her soulmate), Al’s sister Vickie Marchalowich, and many nieces and nephews. Married to the love of her life and best friend, Allan Young for fifty years. Lou and Al fully enjoyed their life together with all kinds of activities: trips, hunting, fishing and other outdoor adventures. After retiring as a teacher, Lou was very involved at St. Basil’s Church and was very dedicated to her community. She enjoyed knitting, cooking, baking, entertaining and going out with her besties. She was a very joyful soul who enjoyed giving rather than receiving and will be missed greatly by all her family and friends. Special thanks to Dr. Manning for providing invaluable support during Lou’s illness. Also, very special thanks to Dr. Gladstone and CBI Home Health for the exceptional care, especially Irena for being such a compassionate caregiver. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Basil’s Church (50 Palace St., Brantford) on Friday, March 26 at 10 a.m. For those planning to attend, please RSVP by phoning (519) 759-2211. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Lucienne may be made to St. Basil’s Church or Juravinski Cancer Centre.

C'est avec le cœur brisé que nous disons adieu à notre chère Lucienne. «Lou» a été rappelée par le seigneur samedi 20 mars 2021 à l’âge de 73 ans. Elle est maintenant en paix en présence du Seigneur. Elle laisse derrière elle son mari bien-aimé, Al, sa sœur Theresa Wilson et son frère Jean Cormier, tous deux de Hamilton, ainsi que des sœurs et un frère du Nouveau-Brunswick. Nous sommes très reconnaissants des excellents soins prodigués par son frère Michel, qui est allé bien au-delà de l'appel du devoir pour aider Al dans cette période difficile. Elle laisse également derrière elle la fille de Al, Tania, son beau-frère, Gerry (Claire, son âme sœur), la sœur de Al Vickie Marchalowich, ainsi que de nombreux neveux et nièces. Mariée à l'amour de sa vie et meilleur ami de Allan Young depuis cinquante ans. Lou et Al ont pleinement profité de leur vie avec toutes sortes d'activités: voyages, chasse, pêche et autres aventures en plein air. Après avoir pris sa retraite comme enseignante, Lou a été très impliquée à l’église St. Basile et a été très dévouée à sa communauté. Elle aimait tricoter, cuisiner, cuisiner, recevoir et sortir avec ses besties. C'était une âme très joyeuse qui aimait mieux donner plutôt que recevoir. Elle manquera beaucoup à toute sa famille et ses amis. Un merci spécial au Dr Manning pour son soutien inestimable pendant la maladie de Lou. Aussi, un merci tout spécial au Dr Gladstone et au CBI Home Health pour les soins exceptionnels, en particulier à Irena pour avoir été une soignante si compatissante. Au lieu de fleurs, un dons à la mémoire de Lucienne peut être faits à l’église Saint-Basile ou au Juravinski Cancer Center.

Lucienne (Mme Young to our now grown daughters) was a kindergarten teacher 'par excellence' and 'sans pareil'. If ever there was a woman divinely chosen to nurture and educate young children, it was Lucienne. She loved each and every one of her students, and parents felt blessed having Lucienne guide their children in their first school experiences. Our girls are in their 30s now, and Mme Young remains their favourite teacher.

What a beautiful difference Lucienne's life made to so many. We hold cherished memories of her in our hearts.

With deepest sympathy,
Diane, Marty, Kate and Natalie Quinlan

Dear Family and Friends of Lucienne

She was such a sweet soul who made everyone around her feel warm and welcomed! I don't know if we ever saw her without a smile on her face even when she was sick.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon her & Rest In Peace.
Good Bless

Dear Family & Friends of Lucienne...it truly was an honor to know Lu. Joyful was her second name. We will miss her beautiful smile and proud French accent. She was one of the best and made this world better. God Bless her brother Michel for giving her the best care. Lu was so proud to introduce us. God Bless her dear Claire...may your memories be a blessing.
Lucienne, we know you're with the angels and looking down saying," be your best, till we meet again".

Dear Al and family,

We are so sorry for your loss! I had the privilege of getting to know Lucienne better in the classroom when I did my practicum. She was a wonderful teacher and human being, a great example to emulate. May her soul be at rest!
Lucienne, merci de ton amitié!
