KSAL StaffNovember 24, 2021

Patricia (Pat) Young (Dempsey), 84, passed away on Monday, November 22nd surrounded by family at her home in Salina, Kansas. She was born in Kansas City, Kansas on March 19, 1937 to Daniel and Nina Dempsey (Harryman). She married Roger Young, a career United States Army pilot, in 1961.

Pat was a full-time mom and Roger commends her for doing a wonderful job raising their five children, especially when Roger was gone serving our country. Pat grew up in Leavenworth, Kansas. She was a long-time resident of Hope, Kansas where she was a member of the Hope United Methodist Church, the Women’s Auxiliary Club, and could often be found working on ceramics. Pat had a passion for gardening, and you would usually find her outside during the spring and summer months. Pat had a love for farm life and horses, but the ocean was her happy place. With all of the military moves and duty stations, Pat loved living in Germany and Hawaii the most. She loved to spend days at the beach.

Pat is survived by her husband, Roger Young; son, Roger (Terri) Young, daughters, Bethena Hemphill (Laurence), Tricia Dinwiddie, and Rosetta Wiles; twelve grandchildren, and one great grandchild; sisters-in-law, Lucy Dempsey, Susan Arruda (William); and brother-in-law, Gary Young (Joan)

Pat was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Jack Dempsey and Jim Dempsey, and her sister, Nina Mae.

Cards, condolences and donations may be made to the family in care of Carlson- Geisendorf Funeral Home, 500 South Ohio St., Salina, Kansas 67401.
