Kathie Young

Kathie Faye Shepherd Young, 70, passed away Sept. 6, 2020 at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Samantha and Ricky Holloman.  Samantha was her mother’s companion on many work travels.  She carried her lovingly and tirelessly on her final journey home.  Kathie was born February 11, 1950 in Lumberton, NC to the late Herbert Shepherd and Blanche Hall Shepherd.  Kathie was a graduate of St. Pauls High School and Pembroke State University.

She worked for many years in the payroll department of Southeastern General Hospital before returning to school and earning her bachelor’s degree in computer science.  She retired from an IT consulting firm and her job there took her many places.  Her favorite place was Papua, New Guinea.   She enjoyed reading, sewing and embroidery.  She passed her love of reading to her children and shared many cherished embroidery and quilted pieces with her children and grandchildren.

Kathie was preceded in death by her husband, Sammy David Young, and granddaughter, Hannah Faye Holloman.

She is survived by two daughters:  Penny Hagens and husband, Andy; Samantha Holloman and husband, Ricky, all of St. Pauls; one son, Jason Young and wife, Shannon of Fort Worth, Texas; seven grandchildren:  Drew Hagens and wife, Kristen; Elizabeth Locklear; Ricky Holloman; Emily Hagens; Corey Locklear; Maggie Locklear and Abbey Gail Young; and six great-grandchildren:  Majestie Munn, Marlie Munn, Quentin Locklear, Mia Munn, Malia Munn and Cooper Hagens; and one sister:  Ann Jackson of St. Pauls.

A private, family service will be held in celebration of her life.

Kathie, we shared some fun times together and some we wondered about why we were doing them. We were sweet friends and I hope you are now at peace. You will be missed! I have thought of you so often over the last few years. Love you, Kathie. Forever your friend. Virginia W Graham

This is the woman with the beautiful smile that would light up any room. She was my best friend. I loved her more than anything in this world. I will never forget all she has done for me all my life. She always called me her baby. She always told me I'd be her baby boy no matter how old I got. She worked hard all her life and provided for her family unlike anything you could imagine. She loved my father and missed him terribly when he passed. I love you mom. I will see you again some day. Until then tell dad I said hello and that I love and miss him too. I know ur happy to see him.
