September 15, 1944 - April 30, 2021
Linda “Ciny” Young passed away on April 30, 2021. She was the beloved wife for 55 years of Ronald Young, devoted mother of Kim, Marc, Katy, and Kory, loving grandmother to Krystal, Victoria, Cody, Olivia, Owen, and Tessa, and treasured great-grandmother to Bryden and Luke. We were blessed to have had such a strong, passionate, and loving person in our lives and we will treasure all the hugs, smiles, laughs, and wonderful memories we have shared forever. Born in Staten Island, New York on September 15, 1944, the daughter of the late Harold and Marjorie (Kirchner) Joseph, Ciny studied at Our Lady Queen of Peace Grammar School and St. Louis Academy High School in Staten Island. She later attended The State University of New York at Oswego where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education. Ciny taught elementary school for 38 years in the Toms River School District and loved every minute of it. Ciny married into a large family that she embraced with all her heart. Ciny loved spending time with her family and watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow. Whether she was judging a cookie decorating competition, watching the kids play sports in the yard, or cheering on an improv dance show, there was never a dull moment and always the best of times. Ciny had a true love of learning and was a voracious reader who went to the library daily to research family history and her many other passions. She was a lifelong member of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and also enjoyed volunteering weekly at The Second Time Around Hospital Consignment Shop. Ciny is survived by her husband Ronald J. Young, daughter Kimberly Testa and her husband Philip, son Marc Young, daughter Katy Durkin and her husband Phil Stemp, son Kory Young and his wife Hillarey Bellardo Young, granddaughter Krystal McKinney and her husband John, grandson Cody Durkin and his wife Allix Jernberg Durkin, granddaughters Victoria and Olivia Testa, grandchildren Owen and Tessa Young, great-grandsons Bryden Durkin-Thiele and Luke McKinney, and father to Krystal and Cody, Peter Durkin. Memorial services will be private for immediate and extended family members. Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
