YOUNG, Frederick William & SHORT, Eveline

Husband, Wife Die Within Week


Frederick William YOUNG died at his home at Alumny Creek on May 28, at the age of 87 years. Six days later his wife, Eveline died at their home at the age of 86.

The late Fred Young was born and educated in Grafton. He was the eldest son of the late John and Harriet Young (nee Bultitude). On leaving school he worked in his father's bakery, which was situated in Prince street on the site where Mr. Murray now conducts a footwear business.

On September 21, 1898, he married Eveline Short, second daughter of the late Samuel and Emily Short (nee Eggins), of Lower Southgate, and resided in Powell street, Grafton. For health reasons, the late Fred Young was forced to relinquish the baking trade and took up dairying at Lower Southgate, moving later to Condong, in the Tweed River District, and ultimately to Alumny Creek, where they spent the last 42 years of their lives.

The late Fred Young always possessed a keen appreciation of good music and in his youth was a foundation member of the Grafton City Brass Band. He was also a member of the Grafton Philharmonic Society and the Methodist Church Choir.

He is survived by two sisters, Elizabeth (Mrs. Twine), and Elsie (Mrs. Brooks, Dunoon), and one brother, Percy (Murwillumbah). Three brothers, Walter, Arthur and Harry, predeceased him.

Possessed of a very retiring nature, the late Eveline Young was respected throughout the district for her devotion as a loving wife and mother, regarding the cares and needs of her husband and family as of paramount importance. She is survived by two sisters, Bertha (Mrs. Clark, The Channon), and Jean (Mrs. McDonald, Sydney). Four sisters and two brothers predeceased her.

The late Frederick and Eveline Young were predeceased by one daughter. Other members of the family are Edith (Mrs. Carter, Maclean), Doreen (Mrs. Prindable, Newcastle), John and Gordon (Alumny Ck.), and Roy (Sydney). Nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren also survive.

The services in the church and at the graveside were conducted by Rev. H. T. Roberts.
