 Mrs. Ruby Grace Young of Avoca, Quebec, age 99, passed away peacefully at Prescott Russell Residence in Hawkesbury, Ontario on August 20, 2018. Predeceased by her Husband Melbourne, her daughter Shirley McRae (Reggie) and her parents Alfred and Katherine Farrara, she was the last member of a family of three brothers and seven sisters.   A long time member of the congregation of the Avoca United Church, she was an enthusiastic supporter of the United Church Women, and, like all Avoca ladies, a hard worker and a very good cook.  She was fond of gardening and excelled at knitting warm wool work socks for everyone. Whatever she turned her hand to she did well.  For many years she was our father’s partner on the family farm in the Young Settlement in Avoca and also when he was janitor at Grenville School.  She is survived by her daughters Holly (Ken Lesage) and Beverley (Bill Lockwood), Grandchildren Jody McRae (Karen), David, Douglas and Dawn Lockwood and Jason Lesage as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.  The family would like to especially thank the doctor, nurses and staff of the Prescott Russell Residence for their very good  care of our Mother.  God bless you, dear Mom, and don’t forget to say hello to everyone for us!
