YOUNG, Linda Kaye
Linda Kaye Young of Smyrna, Georgia passed away on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. A Cobb County native, she was born to the late George W. Young, Jr. and Helen Chumney Young and was a devoted daughter and loving sister. She began her career as an Executive Assistant upon leaving Campbell High School and was a dedicated employee for many years with The Home Depot and Invesco, Ltd. For many years, Linda was an avid Atlanta sports enthusiast who could be found at almost every Braves, Flames, and Falcons game.
