Welcome to the memorial page for

Mary Louise (Boone) Young

February 20, 1944 ~ October 15, 2017 (age 73)

Mary Louise Boone Young, age 73, of Burnsville, passed away on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at  Mission Hospitals Memorial Campus in Asheville, after complications from heart surgery. She was the loving daughter of the late Pearl Marshbanks Boone and Frank Boone of Newdale and the sister of Willa Ann Boone Ward, Frank Douglas Boone and the late Merritt Robinson.  She was a devoted wife to Steve Young for 53 years and the amazing mother to two daughters:  Stacy Young Pace (Brian) of Charlotte and Jennie Young Scoggins (Tommy) of Fuquay-Varina.  She will be cherished forever by her five grandchildren: Hunter, Emily, Allyson, Hadley, and Jessica plus numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

Louise will be most remembered for her humor, laughter, unconditional love and acceptance.  Her zest for life will be greatly missed-she was everyone’s best friend.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 10:30 am in Martins Chapel United Methodist Church in Newdale.  The family will receive friends immediately following the service in the church fellowship hall. One of Louise’s main concerns was the expense for cancer treatment of her beloved niece, Lisa Boone Anderson.  In lieu of flowers, donations for Lisa’s fight can be made in either of two ways: GoFundMe.com/pearls-girls-fund-for-lisa or to her aunt Willa Ann Ward, 11827 Highway 226 S, Spruce Pine, NC 28777.
