Carolyn “Kelly” Eve Young, age 63, North Ferrisburgh, VT

Kelly Young, born February 28, 1959, passed away unexpectedly on October 22, 2022.

Despite Kelly’s recent significant health struggles, her kind, caring, and selfless nature shined through just as brightly and powerfully as ever, right up until the end. The love, courage, and strength of her spirit knows no end, very much like her lifelong love of gardening & nature, animals of all kinds, and all babies & children.

She worked most of her life within the Addison County School District, primarily caring for students who require skilled attunement and compassion. She loved every student she had ever crossed paths with, and continued to do so after her early, unexpected retirement in 2021.

Kelly is survived by an amazing and uniquely strong husband of 6.5 years: Jeff Young, whom she deeply loved. Together, they enjoyed a life she had always dreamed of.

She is also survived by her three beloved children from a previous marriage: Stephanie Looby, Katherine Looby, and Robert Looby the 3rd, whom she was always there for, no matter what.

Jeff’s daughters, Erin Cormier, and Beth Marcotte, and a combined total of six grandchildren, brought an immense amount of joy, laughter, and fun to Kelly’s life. She deeply cherished & loved all of them.

She had three siblings, who always held a very dear place in her heart: Greg Palmer, Virginia Cameron, and Mary O’Connor. They, alongside their respective children and grandchildren, brought many years of joy and love to Kelly’s life.

She was predeceased by her brother, Greg Palmer, in 2021. His former partner, Martha Osmun, remains an integral part of the family.

Kelly was also predeceased by innumerable extended family members & friends, as well as her mother Anna (Prime) Palmer, and her father, Graham Palmer.

Kelly always tended to put others’ needs before her own. The legacy of her life is, by all accounts, primarily defined by her unyielding compassion, and her keen ability to provide a sense of calm, comfort, support, wisdom, and guidance to those who needed it most in any given situation.

She will be dearly missed and forever beloved by all who knew her. May she rest in eternal peace, love, and comfort.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital may be made in her memory.

Services will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2022 at 11:00AM, at Cross Life Church, 1759 US-7, Ferrisburgh VT.
