Obituary of Jean Young

YOUNG: It is with immense sadness the family of Jean Dorland Young (née Shinske) announce her passing peacefully at the Assiniboine Centre on December 29, 2021 at age 94 years. She was predeceased by her husband of 72 years, Harry Young, in 2020, who she is now joyfully reunited with. Jean is predeceased by her parents, John and Mary; her sister, Margaret; brothers: Jack, Bob, Bill and Jim and her infant daughter. She is survived by her children: Joe Young (Bonnie), Mary Jane Lawrence (Doug), Beverly Asham (Danny) as well as her brother, Don Shinske; sister-in-law, Del Shinske; brother-in-law, Ken Young along with eight grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and numerous beloved nieces and nephews. Jean lived a long, full life centered around her family. Her tell-it-like-it is spirit set her apart from many and she was an unforgettable force in a lot of lives. She left her mark and will be greatly missed, though the lessons she imparted will live on through her loved ones. Jean was a long-time member of Central United Church and a 51-year member of the Order of Eastern Star. A service and interment will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Jean may be made to the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation, 150 McTavish Avenue East, Brandon, MB, R7A 2B3.
