Carol Ann (Cripe) Young

January 7, 2022

Carol Ann (Cripe) Young passed away January 1, 2022, quietly at home. She was 80 years old. Carol was born on July 11, 1941 in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, to Ford and Edith Cripe. The family has opted to wait until summer to have a memorial service.

She graduated Troy High School before attending the University of Montana, where she studied elementary education.

Carol married Arthur A. Young in December, 1961. She spent the majority of her life living in Troy and after a brief teaching career settled into raising a large family. Carol was a kind and loving spirit, always willing to take in any child or animal in need. She was an amazing storyteller who loved the written word.

Carol is survived by her children, Ford Young (Amy) Melissa Dirks, Kevin Young, Kendra Young, Mike Blankenship (Lesa), Amanda Wilson (Simon), Calen Williamson (Vanessa) and Justin Young (Amber), 13 grandchildren, one great grandchild, nephew Owen Cripe, niece Aubrey Desfosses, sister Kathy Cripe and brother Larry Cripe. She was preceded in death by her husband Arthur and her parents.

Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby. Online condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
