Mongah was born May 15, 1925 in Gainesville, Georgia. She was married to the love of her life, James B. Young, Sr., for 74 years and he will be lost without her.

Ms. Mongah was my piano teacher at Brookton Elem. Sch. She developed my love for the piano. Her dedication to her students allowed us all to be given an opportunity something we could take with us throughout our life. Mr Young, Blanton an Martha I'm sure the Angel's will enjoy her music in heaven as we have. My condolences to all the family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. I remember the times we came to visit. We would exchange genealogy information and photos, and Ms. Mongah would always have a delicious cake ready when we finished. Fond memories Karen & I (Judy) will never forget.
