Barbara F. Young, 82, of Dunbar, lost her battle with cancer on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at Hubbard Hospice House West, with her loving daughter by her side.

She was born December 4, 1934 in Charleston, the eldest daughter of the late William A. Farmer, Sr., and Maxine Farmer. In addition to her parents, Barbara was predeceased by husband, Quinton Young, grandson, Jared Linkenauger, sister, Giny Dunlap, and brother William A. Farmer, Jr.

Barbara was a 1952 graduate of Dunbar High School. In addition to being an excellent homemaker, she held various bookkeeping and business-related positions with banking and local firms throughout the years. Her greatest passion was her family, to whom she devoted every fiber of her being. Without a doubt, she was the ultimate wife, mother, grandmother, daughter and granddaughter; the caregiver to all.

Barbara is survived by her daughter, Jill Linkenauger (Timothy) and grandson, Timothy “TJ”, of Cross Lanes; niece, Leslie Dunlap of Buford, GA; and several nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at Noon Thursday, September 28, at Dunbar United Methodist Church, 1401 Myers Avenue, Dunbar, with visitation 1 hour prior to the service. Inurnment will be at Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens at a later date.

The family wishes to thank Hospice nurses for the extraordinary care and comfort they provided to our beloved Barbara, and, in lieu of flowers, requests donations to Hubbard Hospice House, 1606 Kanawha Blvd, W, Charleston, WV 25387
