Obituary for Mary Swinson Young

La Grange-Mary Pauline Swinson Young, 90, of the Jason Community, peacefully passed away on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018. Mary was born May 23, 1927 in Greene County to the late Sidney Albert Swinson and Una Mewborn Swinson. Her husband of 67 years, Dan West Young, preceded her in death on January 21, 2014; and her daughter, Laura Lee Young, preceded her in death on January 26, 2016.

Life for Mary revolved around her family and their well-being. Her love for family was displayed in everything she did. Mary always wanted to assist and would always place the needs of others ahead of her own. She was a godly woman and her life personified Proverbs 31. Always positive, Mary always looked for the best in others.

Mary loved reading. She could often be found reading the latest issue of Guideposts or a good novel. Mary found great pleasure in watching classic movies. Her all time favorite was “Gone With The Wind.” Her family has many fond memories of her keen sense of humor.

A memorial service to celebrate and honor Mary’s life will be held Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 3 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home.

Mary is survived by three daughters, Danine Duncan and husband, Bobby, Roxie Duncan, and Jessica Young Barber and husband, Kyle; four grandchildren, Mary Carlyle and husband, Eddie, Bobby Duncan III and wife, Amanda, Conny Duncan Jr. and wife, LaDonna, and Caron Jane Harper and husband, Jason; nine great-grandchildren, Rebecca, Amber, Jackson, Haley, John Conner, Katie, Jonathan, Emmaleigh and Parker. A son-in-law, Conny Duncan, also preceded Mary in death.
