It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their beloved Jennifer Kay Nelson age 57, of Tucson, Arizona.  After an extended illness Kay was taken to Millersburg, Ohio last May and  admitted to Sycamore Run Nursing Home where she passed on Sunday March 17, 2013.  Kay was born to Ronald W Young and Janice A Davis on August 21, 1955 and grew up with her mother, stepfather Robert Dobbins and sisters Ann, Ellen and Maureen in Ohio before moving with her husband and children to Tucson to be near her father and his side of the family.  Kay worked as a medical assistant for more than 30 years in the Geriatric practice of Dr John Pifer where she was known to go out of her way to help the patients by providing transportation, shopping, running errands and even cleaning their homes.  Kay was a devout Christian with a strong spirit of service and kept busy by helping those in need; she attended Casas Adobes Baptist Church for many years.  Kay is survived by her father Ronald W Young, mother Janice A Dobbins, her sisters Ann (Lyman) Dawson, Ellen (Ed Bakerlis), Carrie, Chris and brother Kipp, her husband Arthur and their sons Arthur II and Jeremy, her grandchildren Keegan, Arthur III, Kyleigh, Nikole, Dillon and Mia.  Kay was preceded in death by her mom Nancy L Young, her sister Maureen Hendrix, grandparents James and Flo Lynch, and grandparents Esther Skeeles and Walter Young.  The memorial service and interment were held on March 20th at Sherwood Memorial Gardens in Wooster, Ohio.  We love you Kay and may you rest forever in His peace.

"Kay was my second cousin.  I only knew her when she was a little girl but heard a lot about her from her Dad and her Grandma after she moved to Tucson.  We saw a lot of her when she was a toddler and I know that her Grandma Esther loved her a lot.  We played and  I helped look after them a few times when I was at Aunt Esther's house.  Thoughts and prayers go out to all her family."

"The first time I met my sister Kay I was 11 years old and I fell in love with her immediately.  She was so pretty, kind and funny.  We spent hours just talking and getting to know each other.  I was blessed to have Kay for my sister and will love her forever."
