Proverbs 31:10,26-28 (KJV)
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Life’s journey for Estelle Woods Young began on May 1, 1925 in Oconee County, South Carolina, where she was born to the late Elijah and Lizzie Woods.
She traveled from this little town called Seneca, South Carolina to Thomasville, North Carolina when she was young and stayed with her aunt Willie Mae Hall until she was 25. During her life’s journey she meet and fell in love with the love of life, Thomas Young. Estelle worked for various families and helped take care of children, her passion and work ethic made her a great employee to her employers.
Estelle also well known as “Jim” to anyone in the Seneca township. Jim was a dedicated and faithful wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend. She enjoyed sewing especially quilts, singing gospels songs, and cooking. Everyone will miss Jim walking around in her aprons and her styling in her lavish hats. Her matriarchal spirit will surely be missed, but it will be carried on through her family.
On Saturday, December 12, Heaven’s gates swung open to welcome home the beloved Estella Woods Young. Her earthly life came to a quiet close in High Point, North Carolina at the Meridian Center.
