Sara L. Young (Sally) 3/14/1935 - 3/27/2021

Sara Lucretia Reynolds was born in Pinckneyville, IL to Clara Marie and Maj. Gilbert Reynolds. She grew up in Lawton, OK then Phoenix, AZ. Sally finished high school at Stephens College in Columbia, MO, attended Arizona State University and later Bakersfield College. She met the love of her life, John J. Young, back from the Korean War, when he asked for directions in Phoenix one day, beginning a lifelong love story of 66 years. She placed her family above all, lived and shared her faith every day. Long time parishioners of St. Joseph’s and Our Lady of Perpetual Help, they led Kinder-Catholic and family donut programs for many years. Sally’s beautiful voice sang in church with delight and read scripture from the pulpit eloquently. Sally taught preschool as her six children grew up and later retired as a full charge bookkeeper. She succeeded in all she endeavored. John and Sally never met a stranger, maintaining a large group of friends who traveled for pleasure and Christ, enjoying dominoes and canasta for decades. She is survived by her loving husband, John, children, Sharon (Dale) McBride, Mary Warren, Rick (Tammy) Young, Julia (Gary) Calvillo, John (Penny) Young, and Jim (Ana) Young. Sally’s numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren will miss their cherished Nana. Services will be at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Thursday, April 8, 2021, 9101 Kern Canyon Rd at 11:30 AM, space is limited. SARA L. YOUNG (SALLY)
