Holladay, Utah

Audrey Louder Young, 94, passed away on December 22, 2023, in Holladay Utah. She passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by family. Audrey was born in Park City Utah on April 6, 1929, to Admiral S. (Chub) Louder and Fanny M. Louder. Audrey was the 4th of 8 children. She enjoyed being the “little sister” to her two older sisters Pat and Rayda. She also enjoyed special father-daughter time with her dad as his little girl. At age 6, Audrey became the “big sister” to her younger sister Claudia and three brothers, Jay, Wally, and Delbert. Growing up in Park City was full of excitement as it was an active mining town. Audrey delivered the Park Record after school several days a week, going from one side of town to the other. She was active in school and graduated at the top of her class. After graduation Audrey attended Stevens Henager Collage in Salt Lake City. In 1948 she married Max W. Young by eloping to Elko, Nevada. They resided in Salt Lake City until 1968. During those years Audrey worked at Utah Power and Light for 20+ years as an executive secretary and purchasing agent. Audrey became a mother with the adoption of their son Roger in 1962. In 1964 they completed the family with the adoption of their daughter Rebecca. In 1968 life took her family to San Carlos, California. She always enjoyed the years spent there as a family. Highlights were Sunday afternoon adventures into San Francisco, to Sausalito and Half Moon Bay with excursions to China Town and Fisherman’s Wharf for lunch. Audrey often mentioned those were the best years, full of wonderful memories. She met her longtime very dear friend Veryl Mace there and maintained a special friendship to the end. The Mace’s were a special extended family for Audrey. Her family returned to Utah at the beginning of 1972. Returning to Utah brought new experiences. Audrey joined the Ambassador Club Women’s Bowling League and the Couples Bowling League with Max. She joined several Masonic organizations: Ladies of the Oriental Shrine and Daughters of the Nile as well as holding the position of Treasurer for Bethel #13 International Order of Jobs Daughters. She was also an active member of PEO and the Newcomers group. Her marriage ended in 1983, marking the beginning of a new chapter. She returned to the working world as an executive secretary at Questar Gas for 10 years. After retiring Audrey continued bowling until her late 80’s. She was an avid bridge player, a game she learned to play in California. Audrey played several days a week with bridge groups, making longtime friends with several wonderful people. The best addition to her life was her only grandchild, Sammie. She cherished every moment spent with her. Audrey enjoyed watching Sammie grow up and was so proud of her. Sammie was her “sunshine”.

Audrey is survived by her daughter Rebecca Y. (Stu) Lancaster of Kearns, UT, and son Roger C. (Terri) Young of Elkton, MD; granddaughter Samantha M. Lancaster of South Jordan UT; Sister Claudia (Lou) Giacoma of Holladay, UT; Brothers Wally K. (Linda) Louder of Arvada, CO, and Delbert (JoAnn) Louder of St George, UT.
