WASHBURN - Virginia H. Young, 87, wife of the late George Young, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Aug. 2, 2008, in Presque Isle. She was born Aug. 18, 1920, in Wade, daughter of the late Russell and Laura (Baker) White. As a young girl, Virginia was a hard worker, helping her father and brothers on the family farm and with the harvest. She would often pick more than 100 barrels of potatoes a day. She was employed at Taterstate, Washburn, for many years and was a member of Dunntown Advent Church. Virginia loved her home in Washburn and was always doing things, both inside and out to improve it; and she loved to have grandchildren and great-grandchildren come for summer visits. During those visits they would enjoy camping, cookouts and her wonderful homemade beans and franks dinners on Saturday. She enjoyed working in her flower gardens and always looked forward to spring when she could start working the soil again. She loved to knit and made many wonderful afghans for her family. Virginia was a generous and caring person, who made up gift bags at Christmas, filled with home-baked goodies. She and George would then take them to many senior citizens in the Washburn area. And Christmas was not complete until they made the trip to Massachusetts to spend the holiday with her family. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, David and Barbara Young of Maynard, Mass.; one grandson, Robert Young and his wife, Mary, of Hudson, Mass.; one granddaughter, Claudette Carini and her husband, Andrew, of Ashland, Mass.; her great-grand-children, Kelly and Kristine Young; one brother, Phillip White of Wade; several nieces and nephews; as well as a special friend, Gwen Bragg of Wade. Mrs. Young was predeceased by her husband of more than 60 years, George in 2000; a brother, Loren White; and a sister, Delma Lee. For the past several years, Virginia was a resident of Presque Isle Nursing and Rehab Center, where she received wonderful care from all there. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude for all of the warm and loving care she was given by the staff. A graveside service will be held 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 5, at Riverside Extension Cemetery, Washburn, with the Rev. David Williams officiating. Arrangements by Mockler Funeral Home, 24 Reservoir St., Caribou. For an online register, please go to www.mocklerfuneralhome.com.
