Obituary: Mary E. Young

Young was 77-years-old and a lifelong resident of Moorestown.

Mary E. Young peacefully passed into the more immediate presence of the Lord on Dec. 26. She was 77-years-old and a lifelong resident of Moorestown.

Mary had a creative passion for sewing and crocheting. All of her children (and others) reaped the benefits. Whether it was making her children’s clothes when they were young, Halloween costumes, both her daughters’ wedding gowns (and bridesmaid dresses) or making reenactment costumes, she never hesitated to create something for her family that was one-of-a-kind, just like her. In her later years you could find her crocheting special Christmas gifts for everyone.

She loved her family beyond all else and did everything she could to ensure her children were healthy and happy. Mary was the proud mother of Edward C. (Dianne) Brown, Kimberly A. Brown, Timothy W. Brown and Karen E. (Keith) Adams. She is also survived by her sister, Phoebe Crabtree, nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on Saturday, Jan. 5th at First Moravian Church located at: 228 E. Washington Street in Riverside, NJ. A visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m. with a memorial service at 11 a.m. Interment will be private.

Please no flowers. Memorial contributions to: American Cancer Society, 1851 Old Cuthbert Rd , Cherry Hill, NJ 08034. Condolences may be left at
