Sybil Wilson Young
Sybil Wilson Young, age 93, of Destin, Fla., passed away peacefully Sunday, Feb. 20, 2000.
She was a wife, a mother, a great-grandmother, a confidante and friend - all accomplished with her easy grace. She infused our lives with wisdom, kindness, strength and unconditional love. We will always remember her passion for living.
She was born on Jan. 5, 1907, in Andalusia, Ala., to George and Myrtle Wilson. Most of her childhood years were spent in Opp, Ala. She and her husband of 49 years, William Roy Young, lived in Montgomery, Ala., until his death in 1981. She resided at Sandestin since 1992. Sybil was preceded in death by her son, Billy, and grandson, Bill Moore of Fort Walton Beach.
Sybil was truly a "Grand Lady of Golf." She discovered it - the love of her life - at the age of 50 and it kept her active until recently. Sybil said golf was a tremendous consolation for her in times of loss and stress. And "it's what I'd rather do than anything else." She played for years in the Ladies Golf Association at the Montgomery Country Club. Ten years ago, the annual Sybil Young Ladies Invitational Golf Tournament was named in her honor.
Sybil's life is continued by her daughter, Ann Moore; grandsons, Bobby and Ben Moore; great-granddaughter, Kasey Leann Moore; sister-in-law, Mildred Young. She is also survived by Billy and Kay Walker, Craig and Janie Clemons, Johnny and Laura Wilson, Tom and Chris Head, Mike and Ginger Solomon, Connie Rainer and all their children whom Sybil adored.
