H1N1 virus claims life of Wood County woman

WAYNE, OH (WTOL) - Family members say a native of Wayne, Ohio, in Wood County, has died from complications of the H1N1 virus.

The mother of 22 year-old Kimberly Young tells News 11 that her daughter died from double pneumonia related to the H1N1 virus.

Her mother says Kimberly started experiencing flu like symptoms last week and was admitted to an Oxford, Oh., hospital. She was given an H1N1 test, treated for the flu and released.

Young told her mother she was feeling better last Thursday but on Tuesday, her fever returned and she went back to the hospital. She was transported to University Hospital in Cincinnati where she died early Wednesday morning. 

Her mother says Kimberly's asthma likely also contributed to her death.

Young graduated from Miami University in 2008 and was a 2004 graduate of Elmwood High School. Funeral Services will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26, at Mt. Zion United Brethren Church in Wayne.

The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees. He...
