Eva Agnes Young, a 54-year resident of Palos Verdes Estates entered eternal life June 24th at the age of 84. Born in the farming town of Webster, South Dakota, Eva Piechowski came to Los Angeles in 1940. She moved to Palos Verdes Estates in 1953 with her late husband, LeRoy Albert Young, a well-known South Bay architect. They were married nearly 65 years and spent almost every waking hour together, running their Redondo Beach architectural firm L.A. Young and Associates and raising their 6 children. Eva was known for her deep faith and commitment to the Church. In the early '50s, she and Roy helped found St. Lawrence, watching it grow from a small Catholic church to one of the largest in the South Bay. She was commissioned as a Third Order Franciscan, a rare honor bestowed by the Pope. She was also honored with the 'Benemerenti' papal award for her ministry in the church. In 1987, she and Roy received communion from Pope John Paul II after their architectural firm designed the worship space for his visit to Los Angeles at the Dodger Stadium.
