Obituary: Mary (Dunbar) Young


Mary (Dunbar) Young


Mary (Dunbar) Young, 80 years old, passed away peacefully on December 5, 2023, surrounded by her family. Mary is survived by her children, Debra (Michael) and Gregory (Dorianne). Her greatest joy was being a grandmother of four and great-grandmother of five.  

 Mary lived a full life and loved her family and friends above all else. She was a proud graduate of Blaine High School. She enjoyed domestic and international travel, was artistically gifted and loved collecting art and antiques. She had a full career, she was especially proud of her work with Blue Ribbon Sports to become Nike in the ’70s, ’80s and early ’90s.  

 Mary had a gentle heart and was immensely loyal and determined. Her determination allowed her to build a small business after she retired from Nike. She always had a contagious smile and easy laugh; we will miss her cheerful personality that enriched the lives of many. 

 She was always eager to help those in need and was generous with her time with various organizations.

Mary was greatly loved and will be deeply missed.
