Marjorie E. Youngs

December 23, 2022

Marjorie E. YoungsMarjorie E. Youngs, 92, Clayton, passed away peacefully Friday, December 23, 2022, at Samaritan Summit Village. She was born in Watertown, NY, May 9, 1930, the daughter of Forest and Jennie E. Reddick Denesha. She was a 1948 graduate of Clayton Central School. On September 18, 1953, she married Wayne E. Youngs in the parsonage of Oswegatchie Baptist Church. He passed away in 2017. Margie was a member of the Clayton and Depauville United Methodist Churches.

Margie spent the last 15 years undergoing kidney dialysis at the Watertown Dialysis Center and the last 4 1/2 years as a resident of Samaritan Summit Village. The Staff at these facilities quickly became family and friends to Margie as they recognized her special personality. Her caring, compassion and concern for others characterized her life, from her working years at the Clipper Inn, taking care of her father in law, Wilbur Youngs, to raising her kids, and entertaining friends and relatives at our family camp, the 7 x 9 Hilton, in Barnes Corners. Her final years at Samaritan Summit Village were spent being more concerned about whether her family was ok rather than her own struggles - true to her nature.

She is survived by her six children, William W., Clayton, Robert F., Clayton, Ronald J. and wife Pamela, Cape Vincent, Patricia E. Kittle and husband George, Clayton, Scott W., Reno, NV, and Todd S. and wife Kristin, Clayton; 17 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Along with her parents, Marjorie is predeceased by her 2 daughters-in-law, JoEllen Youngs and Monica Youngs, 4 siblings, Glyndon F. "Soapy" Denesha, Grace D. Nims, Doris D. Cantwell, and Bertha L. Marsh.

Margie's final wishes were that the services be simple. There will be no calling hours. A private service, co-burial of Wayne's and Margie's ashes, and a get together of family and friends will be scheduled in the spring at the family's convenience.

Arrangements are entrusted with Cummings Funeral Service, Inc. Online condolences to Marjorie's family may be posted at www.cummingsfuneral.com

Margie was such a sweet and gracious lady. She always had a big smile on her face whenever I would see her years ago. The memories you all created through the years will keep her memory alive.
