It is with sadness, the family of Marie Phyllis Young, age 77, of Titusville, NB, announces her death which occurred on Friday, November 24, 2017 at the St. John and St. Stephen Nursing Home, Saint John, NB. She was born in Darlings Island, NB, on November 11, 1940, a daughter of the late Alexander and Mary (Gallant) Northrup and wife of the late Ralph Young.
Marie worked twenty eight years as an operating room technician and also spent two years working in neuro surgery. She enjoyed reading, but it was the outdoors that she enjoyed the most, where she kept herself busy working in her garden and attending to her duties of a bee keeper.
