Geniel Ardith Young, 86, passed away Wednesday November 8, 2017 at her home in Bountiful, Utah.

Geniel was born April 10, 1931, in Murray, Utah to Kathleen Louisa Everett and Vernon Osborn Young. She attended schools in both Dallas, Texas and San Francisco, California and graduated from Arlington High School in Texas.  She has also lived in Madison Heights, Michigan, Provo, Utah, and Bellevue, Washington.

Her detail oriented nature and organizational skills made her an invaluable asset to several organizations, including Children’s Hospital of Michigan, where she started in a large secretarial pool, and ultimately became the administrative assistant to the Chief of Staff.  She served in that capacity for many years.

Geniel is the mother of six children. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served in many capacities throughout her lifetime, including serving as an ordinance worker at several different temples.  She was also politically active, especially when living in Michigan.  Geniel loved to read and was a lifelong learner. She loved to study and teach the gospel. After retiring, she took the opportunity to attend Brigham Young University on scholarship, and earned a 4.0 GPA.

Geniel was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother. She is survived by her six children: Linda Harrison of Layton, Utah; Michael Cochran of Howell, Michigan; Vicki (Rodger) Davis of Marine City, Michigan; Mark (Janine) Cochran of Shelby Township, Michigan; David (Nance) Cochran of New Boston, Michigan; Brent (Katie) Cochran of Bountiful, Utah; 14 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren and two sisters: Mitzi Brandt of American Fork, Utah and Judith Brown of Centerville, Utah. She was preceded in death by one great grandson Trevor Cochran of Michigan.
