Obituary for Mrs. Suzanne Brierly-Young....................
On the evening of March 24, 2019, Suzanne Brierly-Young passed away peacefully at the Care Center at Delray Medical Center, Delray Beach, FL. She was predeceased by her parents and younger sister, Anne Fischer.
Suzanne was born with her twin sister, Jean, in Union City, Indiana, on February 20, 1949, to Gene and Aileen Brierly. Suzanne worked in her family's business, Gene’s Bakery and Delicatessen, throughout high school and college. She attended Purdue University and graduated with a major in English. She then joined Delta Airlines as a flight attendant and flew for over 38 years until she retired in 2009.
During her career with Delta Airlines, she visited most of the cities in the United States that were served by Delta. When Delta started service to the Western Pacific in 1985 to Tokyo, Japan, and Seoul, South Korea, Suzanne flew those flights from Portland, OR. During her time with Delta, she lived in Chicago, IL; South Florida; and Vancouver, WA. She cherished the many friends made, and the relationships forged while working for Delta.
In 1997 Suzanne acquired her first Quarter horse and was captivated with the equine world. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Wellington, Florida, to be able to live with their horses. In 2006 she was introduced to the Irish Draught breed and welcomed the first foal in 2010. She loved being part of the equestrian community and valued the friendships she made. Suzanne loved her dogs: Nova, Ellie, and Stella whose unwavering devotion brought her companionship and joy for many years. They were very close to her in the last two years of her life, never leaving her side.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 41 years, Brian Young; her three daughters, Caitlin, Kelley, and Barbara; her sisters, Jean Olson (NH) and her older sister Sharon Wand (AZ). She leaves behind grandchildren, Wyatt and Lindsay; numerous cherished nieces and nephews; along with her many treasured four-legged friends that kept her company until the end.
When she observed Guide Dogs working at the airport, they always brought a smile to her face. She often talked about the importance of their job and how travel for some people would be impossible without them. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Guide Dog Foundation: Pilot Dogs, Inc located in Columbus, OH, would be appreciated. They are Located at https://www.pilotdogs.org/
On Monday, April 8, 2019, there will be a private burial service for the immediate family at Garland Brook Cemetery in Columbus, Indiana with the Rev. Patrick Galligar officiating.
Arrangements were made by Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home.
