Obituary for Mary Evelyn Young

Beloved Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother; formerly of Yuba City, went peacefully to Heaven on May 22, 2018 in Orangevale, CA. Mary was born in Florida in 1926. She moved to Dobbins in the 1950's with her 3 sons and first husband Jim, ranching and working actively in the local church.

Mary is preceded in death by her husband of 35 years, Paul Young of Yuba City. Together they ran 3 businesses, Young Construction Co, Home Lumber, and All Seasons RV before they retired in 1980's. Together they RV'd through Europe for 6 months, made two coast to coast trips in their Airstream, and entertained friends and family on their houseboat on Lake Oroville.

Mary had been active in the National Association of Women in Construction and the Sutter-Yuba Republican Women Federated. Mary was an avid reader and gardener specializing in roses, iris, and orchids. She was a talented seamstress making clothes and dolls for her grandkids, as well as costumes and wedding dresses. She loved knitting and all needle arts. Mary enjoyed music, playing the organ both at home and at church.

Mary is survived by her children; Mike Jacobson (Ramona) of Iloilo City, Philippines; Jeff Jacobson (Melinda) of Fair Oaks, CA; Gary Young (Cathy) of Bella Vista, AR; Gail Tozier (Don) of Oroville, CA; John Jacobson (Janet) of Antioch, CA; and 13 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.
