CONNIE YOUNG Connie J. Young, 78, of Las Vegas, passed away March 17, 2014, as a result of breast cancer. Connie was born July 1935, in Orange, N.J., to Russell and Margaret Swift. The Swift family moved to San Diego, where Connie met and married Ben Young, Dec. 28, 1958, at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, in San Diego; he was on active duty in the U.S. Navy. As a Navy wife, Connie moved many times to many locales including Alameda, Calif., Subic Bay/Clark Air Base R.P., Oakland, Calif., Monterey, Calif., San Diego, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and Alexandria, Va. Two children, Benjamin, born 1962 in Subic Bay, R.P., and Russell, born 1966 in Carmel, Calif., completed the family. Each move provided new challenges and living adjustments that Connie met with great success and dignity. Connie was a dedicated Navy wife and loving mother. In 1980, Connie began work at Naval Weapons Station Concord, Calif. Connie was a conscientious employee who advanced from clerk to computer specialists and received many outstanding performance awards. In 1997, Connie and Ben moved to Las Vegas. Connie is survived by her husband of 55 years, Ben; her children, Ben of Las Vegas, and Russell and his wife, Shannon, of San Antonio; grandchildren, Shaun Young and Erica Young of Omaha, Neb.; and sister, Muriel Rogers of Sonoma, Calif. Services are private. Connie will be inurned at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego. Special gratitude goes to Nathan Adelson Hospice and Bright Star Life Care for the comfort and support provided. "Fair winds and following seas my love."
