Obituary for MARIE ROSETTA YOUNG

Marie Rosetta Young, daughter of the late George and Rosetta Purnell, was born on
May 29, 1936. Peacefully in her sleep, she departed this life at home on June 19,
2019.
Marie attended St. Mary’s County Public Schools. In her early years, she picked
crabs for a crab house and pressed clothes at Lexington Park Dry Cleaners. After
she retired on disability from the Patuxent Naval Hospital as a domestic engineer,
Marie became a cosmetologist. Later, she baby-sat for a number of children for several
years.
On September 19, 1959, she was united in holy matrimony to Silas Lawrence Young,
Sr., who proceeded her in death in January 2004.
Marie was a life-long member of St. Luke United Methodist Church and very active
with the United Methodist Women. She always enjoyed participating in all of St.
Luke’s annual celebrations and special events. Also, she enjoyed baking her pound
cakes or lemon pies for these events. In her younger life, Marie sang on the choir and
performed communion steward duties. For the past several years, she enjoyed being a
part of Vacation Bible School – an activity she participated in during the week she
passed away. Marie enjoyed spending time with her family, church family, and friends.
Her greatest joy was “spoiling” her grandchildren.
Marie is survived by her six children, Clyde Purnell (Waldorf), Linda Purnell
(Lexington Park), Silas Young, Jr. (Saint Inigoes), Robin Johnson (St. Inigoes), John
Young/Louise (Virginia Beach, VA), and Patrick Young/Ingrid, (Hobart, IN);
her siblings, Henrietta Menchion, John Purnell, Charles Purnell, and Robert Purnell;
her sister-in-law, Lillian Dreher; her grandchildren, Brittany, Marquita,
Christopher, Jason, Michael Lawrence, Kenneth, John, Jr., Jaleesa, Jasmine,
Mykeesha, Kaneesha, Patrice, and Michael Lamar; several great-grandchildren; nieces; nephews;and a host of other relatives. She was preceded in death by four brothers,
George, Jr.,William, Roland, and Louis Purnell; one sister, Mary Bernice Williams; one daughter-in-law Frances Elaine Purnell and one grandson Javonn Young.
