Judith A. Young


Judith A. “Judy” Young, 71, of Fostoria, passed away at 3:22 pm Friday April 14, 2017 at Fostoria Community Hospital.

She was born August 29, 1945 in Fostoria to the late Harold C. and Margaret Mae (Kinn) Reinhart. She married Cliff Young June 26, 1965 at St. Wendelin Catholic Church and he survives in Fostoria. 

Also surviving is a daughter, Gena Young of Atlanta, GA; son, Randy Young, Fostoria; five grandchildren, Braxton, Bryndon, Mikayla, Haleigh and Zavier Young; and three brothers, William C. (Lola) Reinhart and Gerald J. (Leona) Reinhart of Fostoria and Richard F. Reinhart, Findlay.

Judy retired from Atlas Crankshaft where she had been a data key punch operator. She was a member of St. Wendelin Catholic Church and a 1963 graduate of St. Wendelin High School.  Judy was an incredibly loving person who gave selflessly to everyone including strangers.  Her grandchildren were the light of her life.  Her family and devout faith were her motivation to live.

So sorry to hear of Judy's death. We can only offer our heartfelt condolences to Bill Jerry and Dick and her family. Judy"s courageous fight and her strong will to live are an inspiration to all who knew Judy.
The one thing that I remember most clearly from our youth was her engaging smile and dimples. By looking through the pictures I can see that she never either the smile or the dimples.
We hope that as time passes her death will fade and the good memories will shine through and all of the good times will flood through your minds.
May her soul rest in the loving arms of the Lord.
With Sympathy,
Don and Rose Marie
