Evelyn M. Young LaVere, 89, Pierrepont Manor

PIERREPONT MANOR, NY  — Evelyn Mary Young LaVere joined her lord and many loved ones gone before her on May 4, 2018.

Born May 12, 1928, in Copenhagen, the daughter of William and Mary Thesier Young, she graduated at the age of 17 from Copenhagen Central School.

She married George Edwin LaVere on June 17, 1946, at the Catholic Church in New Boston. They enjoyed many happy years of marriage and together raised five children.

After retiring from her job as a telephone operator, Evelyn spent her years caring for her family and sharing her love with all those fortunate enough to know her.

She will forever be remembered for her kind smile, her loving ways and of course, her cookies and popcorn balls. Her display of patience was ever present during hunting season, trapping season, and any other season that justified a trip to camp.

Evelyn spent her final years under the loving care of her family, specifically her children Ed, Mark and Chrissy, to whom the remainder of the family will forever be grateful.

Surviving are her children, Carol Mary (Gary) Sweeney, Edwin George, Mark Todd, Darlene Ann Jobson, and Christine Lynn LaVere-Reigle, as well as her seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was predeceased by her husband George, and three brothers, Raymond, Richard and Kenneth Young, and her parents.

Calling hours will be held 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 10, at Piddock Funeral Home in Adams.  The funeral will be held 11 a.m. Friday, May 11, at St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church in Adams with a burial immediately following at St. Cecilia’s Cemetery, Roberts Corners, Henderson. A celebration of life will take place after the services at the American Legion in Adams.

The family asks that donations in Evelyn’s memory be made to either St.Cecilia’s Catholic Church, 17 Grove St., Adams, NY 13605. or the American Alzheimer’s Association, 120 Washington St., Suite 419, Watertown, NY  13601.
