Judith Young Obituary

Judith Ann (McCoy) Young passed away in her home on January 4th, 2024, in Great Falls, MT. The family has entrusted Croxford Funeral Home with her care.

Judy was born on June of 1951 in Sheridan, Wy to Wilma & Harry McCoy. From a very young age Judy realized a strong desire to help her family and others. By the age of 9 she had already applied herself to be a Junior Lifeguard in Miles City and proved to be an exceptional swimmer and always managed to find a body of water to enjoy no matter the location. Also at 9 years she wanted to help people on a spiritual level. She dedicated her life to her god Jehovah that very same year. Throughout her life her dedication was fundamental for who she was and what she did. For many years she served as a full time minister helping others learn about the promises in the Bible for mankind’s future. Her hope for the resurrection gave her great hope and confidence that she and everyone she had lost in death were safely in Jehovah’s memory and would soon be returned to her.

Judy briefly attended Great Falls High and CMR high school.

She married the love of her life, Randolf Young on December 25th, 1968. They celebrated their 55th year of marriage just a few days prior to her passing. Though no marriage is perfect, the determination and loyalty that Judy showed to their bond was impressive. She felt strongly the importance of applying the bible principles of Proverbs 31 of a capable wife.

Although she rarely worked outside of the home she put in more than her fair share of work. They raised 5 of their own children primarily in one home, that Randy built in the early 80s. This home was always filled with the smell of baked goods, the sound of children and the warmth of family. Not only did they have their own children, there were several years that they opened their home to foster other children needing security. Soon she welcomed their first grandchildren to be doted on and she truly came into her own element. Judy was often referred to as everyone’s adoptive mom and grandma. There was never a child she didn’t notice or take time for.

Judy had more hobbies than can be listed, but many stood out because it was done for others. She enjoyed gardening, baking, sewing, and loved to turn her hand at so many crafts. Often you would find her waist deep in toole as she helped decorate for someone’s wedding, baby shower or anniversary. If you couldn’t find Judy you could simply follow the smell of the glue gun where she was usually designing some kind of beautiful creation.

Judy was preceded in death by both of her parents Harry “Jack” McCoy and Wilma Bell (Burns) McCoy, sisters Patricia Atkins, Linda Dormady and her brother Jack McCoy as well as her daughter Leah (Young) Linn.

She is survived by her husband of 55 years Randolf Young of Great Falls, Mt, Children; Rachel Young of Helena, Mt, Eliott Young of Culver City, Ca, Zachary Young (Amber Young) of Wasilla, AK, and Amanda Williams (Samuel Williams) of Great Falls, Mt. Her sister Sherri Braunstadter (Terry) of Billings, Mt. and Her 12 Grandchildren; Eathan Service, Seth Carter, Ashleigh Tanberg, Andrew Tanberg, Jacob Linn, Darby Bushnell, Parker Young, Ryleigh Bushnell, Delaney Linn, Noah Williams, Hudson Young, and Ryker Williams. So many brothers and sisters-in law, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Many more wonderful memories will be shared at her Memorial being held on Saturday January 13th, 2024, at 3pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The address is 3826 7th Ave North, Great Falls MT. Due to limited seating a Zoom link for the services can also be provided upon request.
