Eula Dean Young, 95, of Glendon, WV, beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, in Elkins, WV following a short illness.

She was born on October 23, 1925 in Strange Creek, the daughter of the late Emory Dean and Blanche Chapman Dean.

Eula graduated from Gassaway High School in 1947 and married Ernest Young on January 28, 1948. Eula worked in several places in and around Braxton County during her life. She enjoyed her family, working, and being with people. She was a member of the Gassaway Baptist Church, Red Hat Society, the Spruce Grove CEO’s, and was a former Braxton County Belle. She loved playing bingo and traveling. She didn’t care where or when; she always had her bags packed and was ready to go. Even when she returned from a trip she sometimes would forget where all she’d been, but she always had a wonderful time and was ready to go again. She was an excellent cook and a wonderful pie maker. She would make her delicious pies to raise money for different charities.
