Mildred Louis Young, 84

M ildred Louis Young, age 84, passed away at Glens Falls Hospital on Sunday, Aug. 29, 2010, following a long illness.
Mildred was born on April 9, 1926, in Wallingford, Conn., the daughter of Edward and Jenny (Gregory) Bundock.
She married Donald Young on May 9, 1945, in San Francisco while he was serving the U.S. Navy. They moved back to Connecticut and then to North Hebron in 1952. This is where they started Young’s Apple Orchard. For many years Mildred made apple pies by the hundreds each week to sell at local farmers’ markets. She was well known throughout the region as the “pie lady.” Mildred enjoyed her family and neighbors, but especially she enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her hobbies were varied. She enjoyed playing the organ and was an enthusiastic bowler and crafter. She also enjoyed the occasional trip to the Racino in Saratoga.
Mildred was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Donald Young, four brothers and one sister.
Survivors are her eight children, Donald Young Jr. and his wife, Ann, of Kailua, Hawaii, Allen Young and his wife, Gloria, of North Hebron, Susan Morehouse of North Hebron, Richard Young and his wife, Margaret, of North Hebron, Nancy King and her husband, Bob McMore, of Wells, Vt., Robert Young and his wife, Christina, of North Hebron, Thomas Young and his girlfriend, Becky Jameson, of North Hebron and Karen Kilmartin and her husband, Dave, of North Hebron. She was also blessed with 16 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
As she wished, Mildred was cremated and there will be no calling hours. A graveside service will be held on Thursday, Sept. 2, at 1 p.m. at the North Hebron Cemetery with the Rev. Robert Flower presiding.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, N.Y.
