The Clan Young Society expresses our sincere condolences to our Friends and Family in the Commonwealth on the loss of your devoted Queen Elizabeth II. Our Thoughts and Prayers are with all of you. Blessings. - Linda Young-Sheiko, Clan Young Society President
Queen Elizabeth II, the UK's longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years.
She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.
The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.
Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a "moment of great sadness" for him and his family and that her loss would be "deeply felt" around the world.
He said: "We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother.
"I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world."
During the coming period of mourning, he said he and his family would be "comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held".
The King and his wife, Camilla, now Queen Consort, will return to London on Friday, Buckingham Palace said. He is expected to address the nation on Friday.
Senior royals had gathered at Balmoral after the Queen's doctors became concerned about her health earlier in the day.
All the Queen's children travelled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors placed the Queen under medical supervision.
Her grandson and now heir to the throne, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, also gathered there.
Prime Minister Liz Truss, who was appointed by the Queen on Tuesday, said the monarch was the rock on which modern Britain was built, who had "provided us with the stability and strength that we needed".
Speaking about the new King, she said: "We offer him our loyalty and devotion, just as his mother devoted so much, to so many, for so long.
"And with the passing of the second Elizabethan age, we usher in a new era in the magnificent history of our great country, exactly as Her Majesty would have wished, by saying the words 'God save the King'."
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby - spiritual leader to the Church of England of which the monarch is supreme governor - expressed his "profound sadness".
He said his "prayers are with the King and the Royal Family".
Edward A. Young III
b.1921 / d.2012
The Honourable Court Of The Lord Lyon authorized Edward A. Young III to re-convene Clan Young as an Armigerous Clan. Edward A. Young III is therefore the Convener of Clan Young in perpetuity. Assisting in the re-convening of Clan Young were Past Presidents Col. Gordon A. Young & Russell A. Smith.
It is always difficult to say goodbye to someone who has been such a large part of the family for many years. Russell was there from the beginning of the Clan Young family. He, along with the late Edward A. Young III, and the late Col. Gordon Curtis Young were the Founders of the Clan Young Society that we have today. Russell became the President of the Clan Young Society in 1992 and continued to play a major role in the activities of the clan for many years. Russell can also be credited with establishing the Clan Young war cry; “We Ride”.
Russell asked that people hold their families close to their hearts every single day. He loved his family so much. That included his Clan Young family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Russell’s family and friends.
In Loving Memory Patrick Elliott Young March 6, 1917 - Dec. 3, 2021 Patrick E. Young was born in Shanghai, China March 6, 1917 to English and Irish parents, Sir Cyril and Lady Gertrude Young. He passed Dec. 3, 2021 in his sleep at his home at Northwest Place Retirement Community, just shy of his 105th birthday. His early years were spent in Shanghai (the Paris of the East) and Hong Kong, followed by seven years of boarding school and college in Guernsey, England as was the norm in those days. Returning to Shanghai, he worked until he joined the Royal Navy Reserve in HK during WWII and commanded a mine sweeper in the harbor. After HK fell in 1941, Patrick spent the next four years as a P.O.W. interned by the Japanese. Repatriated after the war back to London, he enjoyed some much deserved leisure time, when he met his wife Sadie R. Beattie in late 1945, whom he married the following year. They went back to Shanghai (where she was also raised) and had two children Patricia and Veronica. They left China when the communists took over in 1949 and moved to Tokyo, Japan where their 3rd daughter, Nancy was born. Patrick worked there as an import-exporter until he transferred to head up the San Francisco office in 1953. Christopher, his only son, was born in Marin county in 1965. His expertise was in metals, mining and wood products which eventually lead him to jobs in L.A, Miami and then Portland in the mid 70's when he set up the international division of Niedermeyer Martin. Patrick loved stamp collecting, gardening and being outside. He started actively exercising in his 80's when Sadie had some health issues. Each year, he looked forward to walking in the Portland Relays to the Coast; the Shamrock Runs; and the Jingle Bell Runs up until age 102. He always wore his kilt and won the eldest participant trophies and was an inspiration to other younger walkers. At 94 he won Portland Clinic's "healthiest 90 year old contest," winning a cruise to Alaska and his five minutes of fame on TV. He traveled extensively for business and he and Sadie continued to travel the world for pleasure after he retired. They had 72 great years together! He was preceded in death by both parents; his wife, Sadie; his elder brother, Sir John Young; and his younger sister, Margot Claremont (London). He is survived by his younger brother, Michael Young (Australia); his children, Patricia (Tim) Chapman; Veronica (Drew) Anguish; Nancy (Rick) Lehman and son, Christopher BH Young; grandchildren, Amanda (Tim) Richter, Gillian, Molly and Andrew Anguish and Chad and Todd Lehman and great-grandchild, Hazel MacNair. He led his life with honesty and integrity. We will always remember him for his zest for life, his "can-do" attitude and "everything in moderation" motto for living. The memories of him will stay in our hearts forever. Final resting place: Bailieborough, Ireland.
