Monica Agnes Young, a wife, mother, grandmother and friend, went to be with Our Lord June 7, 2018. Monica was born January 21, 1938 to Bill and Viola Clement in Crookston, Minnesota. At a very early age the Clement family boarded a “Troop Train” and left Crookston for Washington State, where they settled in the Yakima Valley.

Monica graduated from St. Joseph Academy in 1955. After high school Monica pursued a career in the insurance industry, which she eventually retired from. She was a past President of the Yakima Women’s Insurance Association.

Monica married Dale Young, in Yakima, on April 25, 1959. The two chose to live, work and raise their family in the Yakima Valley. Spending time with her husband, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren was something Monica truly enjoyed. The family dedicated much of their time to traveling and vacationing throughout the Northwest and British Columbia, Canada. Seaside, Oregon was one of Monica’s favorite destinations. Her husband Dale is an avid fisherman. While Monica supported Dale’s enthusiasm for fishing, she personally did not fish or cook it and very seldom ate it. Later in life Monica passed her time sewing, reading and watching the Hallmark Channel.

She is preceded in death by her parents Bill and Viola Clement, brother Robert Clement and daughter Diane (Young) Brown. She is survived by her husband Dale Young, sisters Nerien (John) Peterson and Jean (Don) Dowdy; son Steve C. (Ellyn) Young, daughter Sonda (Mike) Clark, granddaughters Donya (Rawley) Gadley and Deina Davis, grandsons Matthew and Jacob Clark and Chance Pruitt. Monica is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many lifelong friends.

In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations be made to DaVita Dialysis Center of Yakima, WA. A memorial service will be held at Keith & Keith Funeral Home on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at wwww.keithandkeith.com.
