Dorothy Belle Edwards Young WASHINGTON, NJ Dorothy Belle Edwards Young left this life on Oct. 11, 2020, to join the love of her life, Charles Young, in the hereafter. She was born January 23 or 24 or 25 in 1927 (born during a three day blizzard, no one remembered which day) to Frank and Sadie Belle Petrie Edwards in East Palestine, Ohio. She attended Hackettstown High School. She worked at the old Murphy's 5 & 10 and Charlie's restaurant in Washington where she met her future husband, Charles Young. They lived in Hillside, NJ, for a few years and then moved to Washington. For many years she was a stay-at-home Mom but did volunteer work in the Washington Township School District where she worked in both Brass Castle and Port Colden school libraries. Eventually, she was hired as an uncertified school librarian and work there until her retirement in 2004. She was an active member of the PTA and was in charge of arranging book fairs and 6th grade graduation dinners. Because of her work for the PTA she was given life membership. She also served on the Washington Boro Library Council for a short time. She was a past member of the Western Knights Dance Club and a current member of the Oxford Furnace Young at Heart Club. In her free time, she enjoyed reading, traveling, playing bingo, doing crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles, visiting casinos, and playing cards with her brother-in-law (much to her grandmother's disgust) on a Sunday afternoon. She is survived by her children, Pam Young, Charles and Darla Young, and Robert and Noreen Young, and grandchildren, Mathew and Elizabeth Young Jessica and Jon Dearolf and Shane Young. Also surviving are siblings, Robert and Wilma Edwards, Virginia and Lowell Smith, June Mayberry, and John and Helen Edwards, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents; her brothers, Jimmy, Buddy, and Tommy; her sister, Ruth Gross, and brothers-in-law, Carl Mayberry and Kenny Gross.
