Sara Jean Young, 42, of Yulee, Fla., passed away Sunday, October 6, 2019 at UF Health North in Jacksonville, Fla.

She was born in Jacksonville and was the daughter of Carey E. Gill and Cynthia Featherston Lane. She lived most of her life in Nassau County and was a 1995 graduate of Fernandina Beach High School. Sara was a longtime employee of VyStar Credit Union, where she was a member relationship specialist.

Over 12 years ago, she invited Danny Young over for pizza and a movie with her and her roommate. Her first clue that Danny might be “the one” was when her Boston terrier, Chloe, immediately liked Danny. He was the first guy that Chloe liked and didn’t growl at. Sara and Danny were married for more than 10 years. She and Danny have been active members of Journey Church for the last six years.

Sara will always be remembered for her kindness and her big heart. It was said of her that she never did anything less than to “love big” and love without reservation.

She leaves behind her husband, Danny Young, of Yulee; her son, Blake Camron Young, and daughter, Bailey Grace Young, both of Yulee; her mother, Cynthia (Keith) Lane of Fernandina Beach, Fla.; her father, Carey (Susan) Gill of Fernandina Beach; her brother, Jonathon Gill, and her sister, Karla (Ander) Smith, both of Atlanta, Ga.; and her beloved niece and nephews, Kallisti, Lane, Barrett, and Rucker, as well as many other extended family members.

Sara’s family will receive friends 5-7 p.m. Thursday, October 10, 2019 at Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, October 11, 2019 at Journey Church with Pastor Darryl Bellar officiating. She will be laid to rest at Bosque Bello Cemetery.

Those desiring may make contributions in Sara’s memory to Nassau County Animal Services, 86078 License Road, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034.
