Ms. Sallie Inez Young was born to the late Walter Young and Junita Young-Cooke of Greensville County, Virginia on August 25, 1932. She joined Antioch Baptist Church at an early age. Inez truly loved the Lord and this was often witnessed through her spreading the gospel and singing old hymns.   

Inez attended school in Greensville County. She moved to Brooklyn, New York in her early 20’s. She continued serving the Lord by attending church in New York. Also while living there, she was employed with Lloyd and Taylor for over 20 years. She retired with hopes of one day moving back to her hometown of Emporia, Va.

Inez had two daughters, Diane Young and the late Esther Young-Adams. She had one granddaughter, Crystal Adams and a devoted grandson, Craig Young who was a dedicated caregiver to Inez for over 18 years.

Inez was a very caring, strong-willed, tough woman. She always tried to be there for her family before becoming ill. One of her grandson’s most memorable moments was his first year in law school and he was low on money. Inez would call to check on him and send boxes of food to ensure he ate. That is just one way she showered her love of kindness.

Inez was preceded in death by her brothers; Curtis Young, Joe Young, Johnny Ben Young and Cecil Young and sisters; Loretta Young and Rosa Young.

Inez leaves to cherish her memories one daughter, Diane Young who expressed her love, a devoted grandson, Craig Young, granddaughter, Crystal Adams, great-grandson Ze’Marion D. Finnell, great- granddaughter, Zariah D. Finnell; two sisters; Mabiel Coe and Dorothy Newman, one brother, Eddie Young and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
