Micheline Maria-Augustin De Kock Young, 56, passed away September 6, 2016 surround by her family after a courageous five year battle with carcinoid cancer in San Tan Valley, Arizona.
She was born July 16, 1960 in Aalst, East Flanders, Belgium to Petrus Jan De Kock and Clementine De Coster.
Micheline had many roles in her life and took none more seriously than her roles of mother and grandmother. Micheline had a smile that could brighten anyone’s day. She worked with the public all her life, and was always eager to care for others. She touched lives of everyone around her with her kindness and understanding. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Micheline held several callings. Her favorite was that of Primary president. She demonstrated courage and dedication even through her final months.
She is survived by her husband, Bruce Young. Her four children. Kellan (Regina) Fluckiger, Chandler, AZ, Yrris (Gustin) Stamatinos, Weisbaden, GER, Ashley (Richard) Cunningham, Preston, ID, Richard P. Hepworth, San Tan Valley, AZ, and 15 grandchildren. Her five siblings. Marianne (Benoit) Wauters, Belgium, Ginette (Marcel) Tjoen, Belgium, Ronny (Erica) De Kock, Roger (Hedwige) De Kock, Belgium, Pierre (Anja) De Kock, Belgium. She was preceded in death by her parents Petrus and Clementina De Kock.
Her loss is deeply felt by her family, friends, and by the communities she worked so hard to serve. We would like to thank all the kind families in her home ward and Comprehensive Hospice for their care and service to her during her illness.
