Service measured not by GOLD,
but by the GOLDEN RULE
Patricia (Pat) Joan Young, 86, of Wooster, passed away Friday December 4, 2020 at Danbury Senior Living following a period of declining health.
Pat was born April 1, 1934 in Petoskey, Michigan to the late Ralph and Esther (Blackmore) Young. She graduated from Wooster High School and obtained a Bachelor of Arts from The College of Wooster and a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Akron.
Pat’s compassionate spirit and love of learning led to a 30-year career in the Triway School System where she served as a teacher, guidance counselor and coach. After retirement, she found a new passion for helping others by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
Pat had a zest for life and loved to be active. She delighted in swimming, hiking and skiing which she continued to enjoy into her seventies. She was also enthusiastic about the arts and found immense joy in books, theatre and music.
Her blended family was one of the greatest joys of her life. Surviving is her sister Kathleen Hothem; five children, Jan (Dale) Wolf, Keith Beckstein, Nancy (Beckstein) Titus, Linda Beckstein, Thomas (Janet) Beckstein; four step-children, Linda (Schmidt) Hill, Rick (Anne) Schmidt, Gary (Kathy) Schmidt, Ken (Bill) Schmidt; 17 grand-children; 21 great grand-children and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Pat was preceded in death by her step-mother Martha (Gilkey) Young and sister, Judy Young.
Pat shared many gifts in life that we will always treasure. Her adventurous spirit, curiosity and ability to love will be passed on through the generations to come.
The family would like to express tremendous gratitude to the staff at Danbury Senior Living for their kindness, love and support.
