Obituary for Margaret "Peggy" Elizabeth Young

Peggy Young arrived in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, October 21, 2017.
Born Margaret Elizabeth Wymore on August 6, 1920, in Oskaloosa, IA, Peggy, (as she was known to all), was raised the oldest of four with her brothers, Roy, Larry and Perdue.
Always outgoing, fun loving, and quick witted, Peggy met Alfred E., (Al) Young at a military dance in Oskaloosa. They fell in love and were married in Sibley, IA on September 12, 1940. Al and Peggy settled in Worthington, MN and started raising their family while Al was in the army during WWII.
Peggy was baptized at the Worthington Christian Church on May 30, 1943, and devoted herself to raising her sons in a Christian environment. After his service, Al worked for the railroad and started various businesses including a taxi service, school bus service and a thriving trucking concern. They had five sons. Dennis E. (Denny) Young was born in 1942 and now resides in TN. Thomas M. (Mike) Young was born in 1945 and resides in MN. Randall L. (Randy) Young was born in 1946, (died in Viet Nam). Terrance D. (Terry) Young was born in 1951 and lives in Florida. Dana P. Young was born in 1958 and lives in Wyoming.
Peggy always loved her home church, (Worthington Christian Church), and the many enduring friendships that lasted through her life. She was very active in her church, the hospital, babysitting and so much more during a full and rewarding life. Peggy was always most excited when speaking of her sons and their families. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Al Young, all her brothers, Roy, Larry, and Perdue Wymore and her third son, Randy. She is survived by sons, Denny, Mike, Terry and Dana Young, seven grandchildren & several great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at 1:00 p.m., at the Worthington Christian Church in Worthington, MN, with Pastor Doug White officiating.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests a gift be given to Compassionate Care Hospice of Worthington or the Worthington Christian Church.
Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
