Barbara (Buono) Youngs, 81, a resident of United Methodist Homes Hilltop Campus, Johnson City, NY, passed away peacefully on February 22, 2018. She was predeceased by her parents, the Reverend John and Paula Buono, and her special aunt Wanda Pond. She is survived by her beloved husband of 57 years LeRoy Youngs, Johnson City, her daughter Deborah Youngs of Endicott, her son James (Deborah Stratton) Youngs of Endicott, and her brother Daniel (Lois Jean) Buono of McGaheysville, VA. She is also survived by brothers/sisters-in-law Gerald and Jane Youngs, Robert and Janice Shipman, and Gary and Barbara Shipman, all of Lisle. She was beautiful, loyal, loving, supportive, and a perfectionist to a fault. Barbara was an RN and worked as a surgical nurse at Pittsburgh Presbyterian Hospital, Wilson Memorial Hospital, and as a substitute school nurse/teacher at the Whitney Point Central School District. She spent her life caring for, and caring about, her patients, her family, and her friends. She was quiet, yet determined; educated, yet humble; always putting others needs before her own. Special thanks to friends and staff at Hilltop, in particular her friend Ann Dorio.
Memorial Services will be held Wednesday 2 pm at United Methodist Homes Hilltop Campus, 282 Deyo Hill Road, Johnson City. Burial will be in Center Lisle Cemetery at the convenience of the family. The family will receive friends at the Allen Memorial Home, 511-513 East Main Street, Endicott Tuesday from 4-7 pm. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy in Barbara’s memory may be made to The Alzheimer’s Association

Leroy, so sorry to learn of Barbara's passing. When your Christmas card was returned, I thought I'd better do some checking and that's when I found the obituary. Hope you're doing okay. Would love to hear from you if you have the time. (I've started delving into DNA, but enjoy our old-fashioned record research much more.) Above all, be well. Prayers and good thoughts, Nancy

So sorry to hear of Barb's passing. We have known Barb since she came to Broome County, as the daughter of my pastor, Rev. Buono and Jan, where Barb was one of her instructors at Wilson School of Nursing. I have known Roy, of course, for over 75 years, as a best friend and a classmate at WPCS, and a wonderful neighbor for most of my life. His stops to say hello could turn into an hour or more of talking. We had every intention of coming to the funeral but I have been fighting a cold for the last several days-still sneezing and coughing-and we did not feel we would be doing Hilltop any favors by bringing that to the service. We will be there in spirit, remembering all the good times together. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of her family as they work through this very difficult time. Charlie and Jan Fish Baldwin
