Marian Frances Young, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on Thursday, September 3, 2020.

Marian was born August 22, 1930, in Reading, MA to Fred and Mary Merritt. She later married Leon J. Young and they had three children Michael, Stephen, and Leslie. Marian lived life to the fullest and loved traveling with her husband until his passing. Even after her health got bad, she still enjoyed riding around town sightseeing. When she wasn’t traveling, she liked to read and watch anything with Charlie Brown, sit and watch the squirrels play in her backyard, and spend time by the pool and in her Florida room. She spent more time in her Florida room than in the house. She had a quiet and easy going disposition, but when she spoke – you listened. She taught her children to “always do what is right, someone is watching.” She was strong-willed and brutally honest woman. Marian will be missed dearly by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her parents Fred and Mary Merritt; her best friend and husband Leon J. Young; and two brothers Fred W. Merritt Jr. “Sonny” and Daniel E. Merritt “Danny.” She is survived by her three children Michael T. Young, Stephen M. Young, and Leslie A. Bell (Jim) and one grandchild.

Funeral services will be held at Eastern Gate Memorial Funeral Home at 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 10, 2020, interment to follow at Barrancas National Cemetery with Rev. Ken Griffin presiding. Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at Eastern Gate Memorial Funeral Home from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
