Patricia Jean Young, 91, formerly of Moundsville, WV went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at Liza’s Place in Wheeling. Patty lived most of her life in Moundsville, WV, but moved to Belmont, OH later in life. Most recently, Patty was residing in Astoria Place of Barnesville, OH.

She was born July 16, 1929 in Glen Dale, WV. She is the daughter of the late Ollie and Irma Church. Patty was a homemaker that loved to make people smile. Whether it was her funny stories, her cute jokes, or her excellent food, Patty’s goal was to make people happy! Along with maintaining the home, Patty also ran the books and phone and worked the back office of a family-owned cattle business and sale barn. Patty was a very talented organist where she played as a life-long member of Pleasant Valley Methodist Church for 55 years. As a resident of Elmhurst House of Friendship, Patty could occasionally be spotted playing the organ for others to hear. After moving to Belmont, OH, Patty became a member of East Richland Friends Christian Church in St. Clairsville, OH. Aside from being a great homemaker, Patty was excellent at cross-stitch. Many people have been recipients of her amazing work!

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Richard A. Young and her brother Alan Church.

She is survived by her sons, Richard (Jayne Lee) Young of Belmont, OH and Robert (Kathy Jo) Young of Moundsville, WV, her brothers Gary (Teresa) Church of Moundsville, WV and David Church of Columbus, OH.
