Obituary for Hazel E. Young

Hazel E. Young, 87, of Paducah passed away at 1:25 am on Friday, January 4, 2019 at Superior Care Home.

Hazel was born in Centralia, IL and moved to Paducah as a teen. She received her nursing degree from Peabody School of Nursing, now a part of Vanderbilt University. She worked as a registered nurse for many years in Paducah before starting a teaching career at what was then West Kentucky Vocational Technical School.

Hazel retired from Lourdes Hospital as a nursing educator. After retirement she served on the Lourdes Auxiliary and remained a dedicated volunteer at Lourdes for more than 25 years. Hazel loved nursing education and her legacy will be the many practicing nurses who trained under her watch.

She is survived by her two sons, Stewart Young and wife, Debra, of Nashville, TN, and Paul David Young of New York, NY; and one granddaughter, Meagan Nay of Dover, TN.

Hazel was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Robert Otis Young; her parents, Robert E. Whittaker and Cleo E. Sawyer Whittaker, and one sister, Marilyn Whittaker.

A memorial service is scheduled for 12:00 noon Saturday, January 26, 2019 at Fountain Avenue United Methodist Church with Rev. Eddie Smith officiating. Visitation with the family will be from 11:00 am until 12:00 pm on January 26 at the church.

Milner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah is in charge of arrangements.

Contributions in her honor can be made to Mercy Health Foundation, Auxiliary Fund, 1530 Lone Oak Rd. Paducah, KY, 42003 or to Fountain Avenue United Methodist Church.
