Obituary of Marilyn Joan Young (nee Napper)

Passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family, on Saturday, January 14, 2023 just shy of her 81st birthday. Beloved wife and best friend of nearly 60 years to the late Wayne (2021). Dear mother of Rick (Sharon nee Ellis), Brian (Tammie nee Nielsen), Melinda and Jeff (Erin nee AuCoin). Loving grandmother of Justin (Felicia), Michelle, Rebeca, Talman, Emerson and Jayden as well as a great grandmother of Kaiden. Marilyn and Wayne were longtime volunteers and contributors to the Welland Minor Baseball Association and Welland Junior Indians baseball club. Throughout the year they could be seen along the side of the field with their lawn chairs, at a hockey rink or supporting any number of activities for their children and grandchildren. Marilyn’s greatest love was her family but Elvis was a close 2nd. In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and arrangements are entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. A Funeral Service will be held at St. David’s Anglican Church, 369 Thorold Rd, Welland, on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at 11 am. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
