Obituary for Lucille Clinkscales Young


Lucille Clinkscales Young, 97, resident of 326 Circle Drive, widow of John Henry “Chief” Young, died Monday, September 18, 2017 at Hospice Care of the Piedmont Hospice House.

Born in Due West, November 20, 1919, she was a daughter of the late Robert Harvey and Lilla Taylor Clinkscales. She was a member of New Market Baptist Church.

Surviving are her sons, Mickey and wife Elaine Young of Greenwood and Charles and wife Karen Young of Mt. Pleasant; her daughter, Barbara White of Greenwood; grandchildren, Sonya (Bruce) Ridge, Wendi (Stuart) Hinchliffe, Kathy (Alan) Marshall, Chip (Rebecca) Young, Kirsten (Mark) Rollings, Robert (Amber) Rolfes, Robby (Kelly) White and Joel (Meredith) White; twenty-one great grandchildren. She was predeceased by a son-in-law, Joe White, a daughter-in-law, Rosemary Young, five sisters and four brothers.

Funeral services will be conducted at 11 AM Friday from the Blyth Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Stanley Sprouse and Rev. Brent Bennett officiating.

Family burial will follow in Greenwood Memorial Gardens.

By faith Lucille Young received the unmerited grace from God through the death of her Savior Jesus on the cross. One of her favorite hymns was “Old Rugged Cross.”

She was a woman of selfless service; to God, to her husband, her family, her neighbors and her community. In her many purposes, she always strove to be worthy of the commendation: well done, good and faithful servant.

The family would especially like to thank Johnny Dandy and the staff at National Healthcare and the Hospice House for their compassionate and loving care of our mother.

The family is at the home of Mickey and Elaine Young, 207 Lodge Drive and will receive friends at the funeral home from 10 to 11 AM Friday and immediately following the chapel service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to New Market Baptist Church Capital Fund, 906 Ninety Six Hwy, Greenwood, SC 29646 or Hospice Care of the Piedmont, 408 W. Alexander Ave., Greenwood, SC 29646.
