Sharon Young, 81, of Peoria, passed away on Monday, October 18, 2021 at her residence.

Born September 11, 1940 in Springfield, IL daughter to Elmer Arnold and Frances (Moore) Arnold, as the youngest of four siblings that preceded her in death (Lois, Carl, and Ron). She married Robert C. Young on September 28, 1963. He preceded her in death on August 31, 2016. She is survived by children Greg, David, Scott, and Bob.

Sharon grew up in Springfield and attended Urseline Academy. She later attended University of Illinois. Sharon and Robert lived in Springfield, Naperville, and settled in Peoria in 1976. Here they laid their roots where they became members of Mt. Hawley Country Club and their sons graduated from Richwoods and Notre Dame High Schools.

Sharon worked for the Peoria Civic Center for over 20 years. She loved the social interaction and the different shows and events that she helped to promote for the Peoria Civic Center. When she retired, she enjoyed traveling (cruises and overseas trips) and going to the pool with her friends at River City. She also enjoyed gardening and genealogy. Sharon proudly spoke about her sons and grandchildren at the pool, home, and outings.   They were an extension of her life.
