Jane Ray Young

January 1, 1942 ~ August 28, 2018 (age 76)

Waynesville, Jane Ray Young entered into her eternal life on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from the comforts of her own home and surrounded by the loved ones she so cherished.

Jane was born January 1, 1942 to Edgar F. and Gladys Nichols Ray. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by a son, Steven Tony Young; maternal grandparents Silas and Mary Ann Cabe Nichols; paternal grandparents, Robert Lee and Jane Queen Ray; brother Bob Ray and Dick Ray.

Jane was a member of Hazelwood Baptist Church for years and a retired secretary of Home Health with Haywood Regional Medical Center and demonstrated true pride in her work always. Her integrity and hard working nature served as an inspiration to others. She believed anything worth doing commanded every ounce of effort, and lived as a true example of this philosophy.

She took pride in selflessly helping those around her in need and was a rock of stability for so many. She was her daughter's biggest fan and through the years served as cheerleading and softball coach, Girl Scout leader, volunteer, and was proudly a second Mother to so many. She was a woman of faith in her Lord and never ceased to exude strength while enduring life's challenges. If every mother and wife could be like her, the world would be surely be a better place.

Jane is survived by her beloved husband, of 58 years, Dick Young; and her most precious daughter, Leisa Rhena, of Waynesville; brother, Toby Ray (Barbara); first cousin, Jack Nichols; special niece, Missy Ray Gentry; special kitty cat, Sugar; grand-dogs, Julip and Mavis; as well her great niece and nephew.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at Hazelwood Baptist Church with Reverend Tim Lolley officiating. The family will receive friends following the service in the fellowship hall.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in honor may be made to Hazelwood Baptist Church, 265 Hazelwood Avenue, Waynesville, NC 28786.

The care of Jane has been entrusted to Wells Funeral Homes and an online memorial register is available at "Obituaries" at www.wellsfuneralhome.com
