Sarah “Sally” Young

Young, SallySarah (Sally) Carolyn Young (10/17/1933-2/3/2018)

Sally Young passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, February 3, 2018, in Federal Way, WA. She was born October 17, 1933, in Seattle, WA, to James Chalmers Young and Ruth Agnes Young. After graduating from Seattle’s Garfield High School in 1951, Sally attended Prairie Bible Institute (PBI), studying music and missions, graduating in 1955 with a teacher’s diploma. She then taught music and voice lessons at PBI until 1960. From 1960-1969 she toured Germany with the Janz Team evangelistic ministry. Upon her return she attended Seattle Pacific College, where she graduated with a BA in 1972 majoring in English and German education.  After obtaining her teacher’s certificate for elementary and secondary education, she had difficulty finding a teaching job and worked at her brother Jim’s office as a legal secretary.  She later worked for various law firms, specializing in litigation, until she retired from Bogle & Gates in 1999. She enjoyed several years of retirement in Port Angeles, and her favorite hiking spot was Hurricane Ridge.

Sally was active in several Seattle churches: First Presbyterian (1933-1940, 1970-1980), Westminster Presbyterian (1940-1947), Tabernacle Baptist (1948-1970), University Presbyterian (1981-2000) (Stephen Ministry), and First United Methodist Church in Port Angeles (2000-2013), where she was active in the choir (Messengers) and several other ministries. She loved music, books, the outdoors, cats, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. She is remembered for her quick-witted humor, intelligence, loyal friendships, love for family, including all her “favorite nieces and nephews,” and faith in Christ.

Sally was preceded in death by her sisters Marianne Christine Kissack, Ruth Margaret Rankin Tucker, Kathryn Elizabeth Hart, her brother, James Roy Young, and nephews Roy Rankin, Ian Kissack, Lauren Kissack and Nathan Young.  She is survived by 16 nieces and nephews.

A Memorial will be held Saturday, February 24, 2:00 PM, at First United Methodist Church, 110 E 7th St, Port Angeles, WA.

    Wonderful woman! Great example. So enjoyed my last visit with her in Port Angeles and hearing her story and the family times that we shared as relatives! I loved that she was still teaching youth. May be as devoted to carrying on the legacy we have been given.
