Doreen Young passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital this week. She will be sadly missed by her three children, Mark, Helen and Rachel, and by her seven adoring grandchildren; Olivia, Jasmine, Miranda, Graham, Gillian, Mitchell and Daniel.
Her life was full of love and music, and she was an adventurous spirit as well. She left her beloved Yorkshire to travel to Namibia for a few years followed by her final destination of New Brunswick. She believed strongly in family and education, and worked tirelessly with NB Home and School Associations to try and get kindergarten as a part of the education system in New Brunswick. She was also a talented cake decorator, long before Cake Boss was on the air.
She was a devoted wife and mother, and showered affection on all her children and grandchildren. She taught all of her children the value of kindness and fairness and was never known to say a mean spirited thing to anyone. She was a wonderful singer as well, and added a lovely voice to the various choirs she was part of. Singing in church was a favourite pastime and she practiced it until she could no longer.
A Service to celebrate and honour Doreen’s life will be held at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, 105 Elmwood Drive, on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 2:00 pm with Rev. Rob Salloum officiating.
Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995) in care of arrangements.
Donations can be made in her name to the Canadian Cancer Society or to St. Andrews Anglican Church. Condolences and best wishes for the family may be shared at
