Dora Dean  Young
Mother began every morning with a "God bless you" to everyone.
Dora Dean Young was born on September 3, 1913, in the Cookson Hills near Tahlequah, Oklahoma, to Mary Jane Lowery and Levi Keyes Clark. She was the 4th of 5 children. She had 3 sisters and 1 brother. At birth Dora Dean weighed only 2 lbs. and they put her in a chicken incubator to keep her warm. She wasn't expected to live, but live she did, outlasting everyone in her family. Dora Dean graduated from Dewey High School in Dewey, Oklahoma. On April 8, 1934, she married her high school sweetheart, Howard M. Young. They had two daughters, Jayne Marie Saindon (Gary) and Nathalee Morgan. Dora Dean went to beauty school and then to business school. Howard worked for Frank Phillips at Phillips 66 Petroleum and Dora Dean worked for Mrs. Jane Phillips (Frank's wife) as her personal assistant, traveling with her and her family for 30 years. After Mrs. Phillips' death, Dora Dean moved with her family to Billings, MT, where she managed the Hart Albin Book Store in downtown Billings. Her husband, Howard, passed away on March 31, 1965. Dora Dean became Head Resident of Turner House girls' dormitory at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho, for 14 years. She was a widow for 15 years and in 1980 she married John Bruce Cook of Billings.
They were married for 20 years until he passed away in 2000. Dora Dean was preceded in death by her husbands, Howard M. Young and John Bruce Cook, her son-in-law, Dale Spencer Morgan, her two beloved great grandsons, Mark Howard Morgan and Tylor Gene Morgan, step-daughter Karen Cook Mosbaugh, and step-son, Tom Cook. Dora Dean is survived by her daughters, Jayne Marie Saindon (Gary) and Nathalee Morgan, Step-daughter Marcia Rickman (Harold), grandchildren, Susan Marie Saindon Walter (Ron) and beloved great grandson, Evan James Walter, John Howard Morgan (Emee), Clark Spencer Morgan (Jeanine) Michelle Morgan McCurdy (Rod) Monica Morgan White (Rick), Laura Mosbbaugh Hart (Mike), Jim Mosbaugh (LaRae), Mike Mosbaugh (Jeanne), and numerous step great grandchildren.

She was President of the State of Montana Christian Women's Fellowship for several terms. In 2013 she was awarded the honor of Elder Emeritus for her years of sacrificial service to the First Christian Church in Billings.
Services will be held at the First Christian Church 6th Avenue and North 29th in Billings, MT on April 14 at 11 a.m. with Rev. Bobby Shaw officiating. There will be a luncheon following.
