Nicole Dawn Lucas Young, 41, of Green, passed away Thursday, September 2, 2021 at her residence. She was born September 18, 1979 in Bellaire, Ohio to Wade and Teresa (Randall) Lucas. She was a 1997 graduate of Coshocton High School and received her B.S. degree from Baldwin Wallace University in 2002. During her time at BW, she participated on the Track and Cross Country teams where she was a valuable member of many of their OAC championships. Her greatest memories were participating in the NCAA National Championships for the BW Cross Country team. She went on to receive her Master of Education in Counseling from the University of Akron, working many years as a classroom teacher and school guidance counselor while also serving as the Track Coach of Euclid High School. Though she had a successful career, her greatest accomplishment was being a loving mother to her five children - that's what gave her the strength and courage to live each day to its fullest.
