Betty Lorraine Ercanbrack was the daughter of Byron Abner Ercanbrack (1887 1950) and Emma Minnie Merryweather (1887 1962). She was born in Ely, Nevada and grew up in Nevada. She met her future husband, Ronal Theo Young while they were still teenagers. He had come to Nevada with a friend from Tucson who had family in Nevada. Ronal, known to his friends as Ronnie, attended a school prom and met Betty there. They enjoyed being together and developed a very close bond. When Ronnie was called on a mission, they said their goodbyes with mixed emotions. When he had returned home to Tucson, he made plans to visit Nevada again and they were soon seeing each other and fell in love. Betty and Ronnie were married in the Arizona Temple on March 28, 1947. They lived for a short time with his parents, Will and Effie Young. Ronnie then built an apartment adjoining his parent's home and their first baby, a daughter was born while living there.
In August of 1951, they moved to Caliente, Nevada, where they lived for the rest of their lives. They became the parents of five more children, now being the parents of two daughters and four sons. Ronal worked hard to provide for his growing family. In time, they were the owners of a motel in Caliente, which added to the family income. Ronnie's father William Harrison Young Sr. often came to Nevada to help Ronnie on the farm and they both were hard workers. The children were also a vital part of helping with chores, both at the motel and on the farm.
In May 1983, Betty served a mission with her husband, serving in the Washington Seattle Mission. She was a dedicated wife and mother and her forbearance in difficult times was an example to all who knew and loved her. She died March 16, 1998, leaving behind her husband, children, grandchildren and other extended family members who loved and respected this gallant and elect lady.
