IN LOVING MEMORY

Kelly Ann (Simonson) Young

The first word to describe such a soul is “Mother”. She always said her kids were her heart. Now her heart must live on in her 5 kids. She passed away peacefully at 8:49pm on January 13th, while being held by her husband of 39 years, Tony Young. She was a dutiful wife, loving mother & doting grandmother of 11 grandkids. Born in Minnesota, but followed the path of a devoted Air Force wife to exotic places like Clovis, NM, Anchorage, AK & Panama City, FL before settling in Las Vegas, NV.

 

She enjoyed Keno (always playing the birthdays of her kids), watching the Minnesota Vikings & spending time with her friends. Her laugh made you laugh; her smile made you smile. We will always hear her infectious laugh when we think of those precious memories of her.

 

She is survived by her (son) James & Monica Vnuk (grandkids - Samantha, Kristina, Hayden, Isabella); (daughter) Kristina Vnuk; (son) Brandon & Amy Young (grandkids - Brayden, Austin, Kellan); (son) Mark & Jessica Young (grandkid - Riley); (daughter) Rachael & Jared Powers (grandkids - Jayden, Kyler, Colton). Let us not forget her fur child, Cashew, a spunky little Pomeranian. We love you, Momma. Rest peacefully now. The pain is gone, but the love remains. 💔
