April 3, 1940 – March 22, 2013
Helen Marie Young died on March 22, 2013, surrounded by her loving family. Helen was born April 3, 1940, in Henderson, Colo., to Charles and Buelah Jones, a railroad man and a waitress who worked hard all their lives.
She met her husband and best friend Gary in Denver and married him in August of 1958. They shared an old-fashioned love for nearly 55 years. It was the “til death do you part” kind of love.
She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Helen was a kind and a very dignified woman who lived by the motto “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
Helen loved long, scenic drives, fishing trips, Colorado Rockies baseball, the Broncos, lunch at the center with friends, and most of all, she loved the time spent with her children and grandchildren. She was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband Gary, daughter Julie (Jeff) Durham, son Randy Young, grandson Allen (Jenn) Durham, granddaughter Shantel Durham, granddaughters Shandi and Trista Young (their mother Lesa Young), son-in-law Ron Meyers, granddaughter Alisha, sister Patty, brother Pat and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved daughter Tammy and brothers Walt and Tom.
A Celebration of Life will be held on April 6 at 2 p.m., at the North Big Horn Senior Center in Lovell.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the North Big Horn Senior Center in Lovell or Relay For Life in Lovell.
