Patricia L. Young, 70, died peacefully with her daughter at her side, following an extended period of declining health, Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014, at Maine Medical Center in Portland.

Born in New London, Conn., Feb. 17, 1944, she was the daughter of Fred and Ruth Politti Moreash.

On July 8, 1970, Pat married her soulmate, Maurice B. Young in Shreveport, La. The two shared nearly 40 years of marriage before Mr. Young’s death in 2009.

After moving to Maine, the two enjoyed countless hours metal detecting and panning for gold in Byron. Pat and Maurice were members of the Mainely Street Rods Car Club, and took great joy in attending the "cruise-ins."

A caregiver at heart, Pat spent many years as a CNA and CRMA providing personal in-home care for many area families. Most recently she has enjoyed the many friendships she made while playing bingo in Waldoboro.

Family was Pat’s number one priority. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, attending their sporting events, and playing with them whenever she could.

Predeceased by her husband, and two brothers, Edward Moreash, and Fred Moreash; Pat is survived by her sons, Robert S. Young, Maurice D. Young and his companion Teresa Lovejoy, all of Cushing; her daughter Shirley Allen of Cushing; her grandsons, Joseph Ray of Sumter, S.C., Cole and Connor Allen and Thomas Young, all of Cushing; her sisters, Anna Beliek of Youngstown, Ohio, Vera Shaw of Providence, R.I., Shirley Jones of Sumter, S.C., Gladys Mitchell and her husband Stephen of Cushing, and a brother Harold Moreash of Ledgered, Conn.
