Georgia Evelyn Young age 86 went home to be with the Lord on June 2nd. She was met at the gates of Heaven by her loving husband of 48 years, George Young who proceeded her in death. Evelyn was born November 16, 1934 in Old Fort North Carolina. She grew up in the mountains there and was very proud of her southern roots. She was very pleased anytime that someone mentioned her sweet southern accent. She moved to Clarksburg Md at age 20 where she met and married George Young. They travelled a lot early in their marriage due to George’s job in construction, but settled in Mt Airy in 1965 and raised their family there.
She is also now rejoicing in Glory with her parents James Bulow Effler and Gertrude Mae Effler, and several brothers and sisters Doris Lunsford, James Effler , Mary Goode , Daniel Effler, Henry Effler, Carolyn Jones all of Old Fort N. C.
She is the loving mother of three children, Deberah Blair of Mt. Airy, Gary Young of Frederick MD, Beverly Osmond and husband Kenny of Mt. Airy, three grandchildren Stephanie Levy of Delaware, Samantha Stinson of Westminster, and Cody Young of Mt. Airy. If you ever spoke with Evelyn then you know that her pride and joy were her two great grandchildren Caelan Stevenson and Briar Stinson. She was very quick to share stories about these two and they were truly the apples of her eye.
Evelyn was a full time home maker . She had worked briefly outside of the home and had provided daycare to her own grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as many other children thru the years. She was a long time member of the Lighthouse Ministries Church of God where she had taught Sunday school for many years, participated in Christmas and Easter programs, singing in the choir and was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary. She deeply loved her church family. She also loved gardening, word puzzles, listening to gospel music, chatting on the phone with her friend Dot, and reading her Bible. Time with her family was one of her greatest joys. She loved vacationing in Tennessee with her great grandchildren, being surrounded by family at holidays, and just spending time with them at home. She was very loved and cherished and will be greatly missed by those left behind.

Granny’s Rocking Chair…Love Caelan and Briar
I learned about Jesus in Granny’s rocking chair,
upon her lap I would sit,
and stories she would share.
She loved her dear Lord Jesus,
He was her best friend.
And He was always with her,
especially at the end.
So though my heart is broken,
to have this treasure depart.
I will see her again in Heaven
and I will keep her in my heart.
And when I get to Glory,
and no longer have a care,
I am sure I will see my Granny,
waiting in her rocking chair.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…
