Obituary

Wednesday June 26, 1929 was not an ordinary day, it was special. It was the day that God chose to welcome His daughter, Marie Una Young, and to present her to her parents, Hayden and Leonies Young. Nature cooperated with this welcome as the sun climbed above the horizon, bathing Saint Lucia in its golden brilliance; this was God's seal that she was destined for greatness. It was a Royal welcome, befitting of the princess that she was.

Mrs. Una Young-Charles, affectionately called "Nurse Young" was born and raised in Castries, St. Lucia. Her formative years were filled with the love and direction of her parents, Hayden and Leonies. They taught her to love God supremely, and to love her fellowman as she would love herself. This became her mantra, and the guiding principle of her life. Her parents also instilled in her the value of reading and the importance of an education.

She attended the Methodist Primary School and then studied to join the nursing service. She worked at the Victoria Hospital from 1950 until her retirement in 1985. However, being kind, compassionate and devoted she continued working as a private nurse both at the hospital and at various residences. She finally retired in 1996 when she traveled to America to spend time with her children and grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ulvic Charles,
