Young, Nancy (8 JAN 1853 - 12 MAY 1936)

Nancy Kitchin was born in Walwick, Iowa Co., Wis., January 8th, 1853 and passed away at her home in Loyal at 1:15 A. M., May 12th, 1936, aged 83 years, 4 months and 4 days.

She was married to Mr. Frank Young about 60 years ago, after which the family lived on farms in other parts of the state, until about twelve years ago when they moved to Loyal. Her husband her in death ten years ago last January.

Mrs. Young was a great sufferer. She had been sick for several months and had been confined to her bed for 14 weeks. Much of this time she was in such a critical condition that from day to day her death was expected at any time. During this long period of illness she was given the best possible care by her children and grandchildren, who did for her everything that modern skill and loving hearts could suggest. She had remarkable vitality but it was a losing battle, and at the end she slipped quietly and peacefully away, " and was not for her God took her."

She joined the Methodist Episcopal Church early in life and continued faithful to Christ and the Church until the end. When, a few weeks ago, the Pastor administered the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper to her and certain members of the family, she received the elements with indications of deep devotion and great satisfaction.

She leaves to mourn her departure three sons, Mr. Bert Young of Loyal, Mr. James V. Young, of Neillsville, and Mr. Joe Young, of Prairie du Chien, and three daughters, Mrs. G. Douglas, of South Wayne, Wis., Mrs. Geo. W. Thurber, and Mrs. Wilda Elliott, both of Loyal; she had three children who preceded her in death. She also leaves a brother and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Schlosser of South Bend, Wis., Mrs. Emma White, of Argyle, Wis., and Mr. Calvin Kitchin, who lives in Nebraska and is over 90 years old. There are a large number of grandchildren and a host of friends who join the family in their great sorrow.

Funeral services were held on Friday, May 15th at 8:30 from the home of the deceased and 9:30 from the M. E. Church here. Rev. A. N. Chapman officiated. The body was taken to Hannibal where interment took place.

Bert, James and Joe Young, sons of the deceased, Geo. Thurber and Geo. Douglas, Sons-in-law and Clem Rous were pall bearers.

The Tribune joins the many friends of the bereaved in extending their heartfelt sympathy.
