Mrs. Shirley Ann Houston Young, age 75, of Five Points, Alabama, passed away on November 23, 2019 at her residence. Mrs. Young was born on July 13, 1944 in Franklin, North Carolina to the late Beulon Calvin Houston (died while serving in the Army during World War ll) and Irene Mae Rogers Houston-Adams. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Roger Adams and her stepfather, Oscar Adams.

Mrs. Young retired from the Troup County School System and was a member of Grace Baptist Church. Above all, she loved God, her family and friends. She served in various jobs at the church through the years and loved her friends at church. Mission work was very important to her both local and out of state. She was a member of the Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief Team and counted it an honor to serve in this role. She found great pleasure in helping others, cooking for family and friends, and having large groups gather at her home. Mrs. Young enjoyed all types of crafts and decorating. She especially enjoyed cruising with Uncle Wade, Aunt Louise and friends. She participated and was a member of the LaGrange Shufflers Square Dance Club and taught school for a number of years, both public and private.

Her education endeavors included graduating from Franklin County High School in Franklin, North Carolina, graduating from Garner Webb University in Boiling Springs, North Carolina and graduating from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. She also furthered her education at LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia and West Georgia University in Carrollton, Georgia.

Survivors include her husband and loving Soulmate, Doyle Tabner Young of Five Points, Alabama; daughter, Rhonda Young Mitchell of LaGrange; grandson, Brandon Aaron Mitchell and his wife Lindsey of LaGrange; great grandson, Kaden Aaron Mitchell of LaGrange; sister, Sandra Kay Woods and her husband Gerald and her son Justin Adams of Franklin, North Carolina; sister in law, Nancey Adams of Lenoir, North Carolina; uncles, Troy Joseph Rogers and his wife Doris and Wade Montgomery Rogers and his wife Louise; cousins, extended family and friends.

I’m am very sorry that Mrs Shirley Young has passed away. I met her when Brandon was in elementary school at West Ga Christian Academy , now (LCS). I’ve often thought of her and wondered how she was, and I’ve missed seeing her since all of the kids grew up and our paths took other directions. I was thinking of her just a few days ago while getting out my Christmas decorations. I’ve kept a wooden gingerbread man ornament that she gave to me years ago. I have always admired her spirit. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Prayers and thoughts for you all during this season.

Rhonda, Mr. Doyle , Brandon & Family: My fondest memory of Ms Shirley was how much joy Her family brought to her. You could just feel the love she had for you all . Little Kaden put a smile on her face from ear to ear . She just bubbled over with joy when she was with you all. Her care and love were contagious and an example of what a Mother and Grandmother should be made of. I feel so privileged that I got to meet her and will strive to follow her example. My thoughts and prayers to you all, Chris Rice
