Obituary for Loretta J. Young

Loretta Young passed away peacefully with family at her bedside at Henry Ford Hospital on September 30, 2021. She was 89 years old. Loretta was born May 21, 1932 in Hamtramck to Josephine and Edward Kontrymowicz. She was raised in Hamtramck with a wonderful community of neighbors and friends.

She graduated from Saint Florian High School and continued her education at Saint Joseph Mercy Hospital and became a Registered Nurse. She started her career taking care of surgical patients where she met John Edward Young (Jack). They were married and had three wonderful children, whom they raised in Clawson, Michigan. She met many great people and made wonderful friends. Some of her favorite things were playing pinochle in the pinochle club and bowling on a couples’ league.

After her children were grown and Jack retired, they wintered in Springhill, Florida and summered in Higgins Lake, Michigan. They certainly enjoyed their homes in both places and loved having family and friends visit.

Loretta is survived by her children, Karen (Ronnie) Young, Gail (Bill) Tisler, Ronald (Mary Ann) Young,
her three grandchildren; Kyle Tisler and Rachael and Kristen Young. She was preceded to heaven by her parents, her brothers’ Edward and Chester her sister Victoria and her husband John Edward Young.

It was Loretta’s wish not to have a public funeral. She didn’t want anyone taking a risk and being exposed to Covid. She wanted to keep her family and friends safe.

In lieu of flowers’, it would be appreciated to donate to the Cynthia Ray Fund at Henry Ford Hospital or the Michigan Humane Society.
