Susie Mary Young, age 90, of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. She was born in Berlin, Alabama on April 14, 1931 to Charlie and Mary Cook (nee Fail).
My Mother wanted to be remembered as she always had a smile. She had a big, kind, loving heart and always had a kind word no matter what she was going through in life. She always said, "I am blessed and highly favored." "Trust in the Lord and be kind to everyone." "Show me love while I live." "Don't cry when I'm gone if you didn't show me love when I lived." Always said, "I love you more." "Give me my flower while I live."
