49 years ago I taught the 6th grade for one year at Barlow-Vincent Elementary School, after graduating from Marietta College. Today I read about my Marietta College 50th reunion, then I decided to do a search on Sandra Young from Vincent, Ohio, because she is the first person I think of when I remember my wonderful teaching experience at Barlow-Vincent. Sandra was always so friendly and upbeat. She also helped me grade my papers after school (which I hated to do). She never asked anything in return. I am sad to read about Sandra's passing, but I am happy to remember all the joy she brought to others. She made a difference that I still remember 49 years later.

I am at a loss of words to describe how much you are loved and truly will be missed. I will always remember coming down from the high school to shadow you and assist you with anything during my time there. I wish I could turn back time and do it all again. My condolences go out to the family and friends who will always miss you till we see you again. Elizabeth Dysert Stacy

Miss Sandra Young was an extraordinary teacher. TAG art class was my favorite class in grade school & high school. Sandra gave me inspiration during my childhood at B-V. Her classroom was a sanctuary.
I have many wonderful memories of both Sandra & Sylvia. I'm honored to have been taught by both of these incredibly talented teachers. They are the reason I and so many students love art.
My condolences go out to Sylvia and her family.

Miss Young was one of my favorite teachers. I was in her class for 9 years. My entire time at Barlow-Vincent Elementary. She was always so nice, and took the time to help anyone who needed it. She is the reason I loved art! I remember being excited on the days I had art class. My son also had her for a few years before she retired, and he loved her as well. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family

I never had the pleasure to be Sandra's Student, however she did make guest appearance in my highschool class with Ms. Sylvia. Sandra was a great woman and an amazing teacher.
Sylvia, my thoughts and prayers are with you in such a time. You two were always adorably matched and it was always my favorite day when you had a "sissy story" to tell us. I wish so much that I could have traveled to attend the funeral and pay my final respects to such an amazing woman. (Class of 2005)
