Mary Alice Young

1926 — November 28, 2022

Mary Young, 96, of Coleman passed away Monday, November 28, 2022. She was born in Merkel, Texas on April 11, 1926, to Henry W. and Cora Lee Hester and was the youngest of five children.

Mary met Billy Carter Young and they married November 27, 1946.  She was a homemaker, raising two daughters.  She was an active member of Lytle South Baptist Church, before moving to Coleman.

She and her husband traveled throughout the United States and Canada in their motorhome.  They spent their summers in Fun Valley, Colorado each year.  The group of friends they made there became a second family to them.
