Mary J. Young, 84, of Bristol, passed away at Bristol Hospital surrounded by her family on Monday, June 20, 2016.  She was the loving wife of the late Vernon L. Young who preceded her in death in 2012.  Born on October 14, 1931 in Ashland, Maine, she was the daughter of the late Nellie Amnont.


Mary spent her time taking care of her loved ones.  From raising her son to enjoying activities with her grandson, those were some of her most cherished memories.  She loved to travel with her family especially the road trips to Maine where they went from place to place visiting family in the area.  Holidays were also a special time and the chance for the family to gather together again.  Mary also enjoyed playing Bingo and was an avid Red Sox fan.  She will be dearly missed by all those who knew her.


She leaves her son Steven P. Young and his wife Lois of Bristol; a grandson Michael Young of Bristol; two step-grandchildren Alyssa Hurley and Chandler Roy of Bristol along with several nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by several brothers and sisters.
