Ida Marie Young, age 87, of Ralph, PA, passed away on Saturday, May 2, 2020, after a long battle with dementia.
Ida was born on June 3, 1932 in Uniontown, Pa. and was the daughter of Artie and John Rose. Ida is survived by her sister, Phoebe (Rose) Marano, wife of the late Thomas Marano. Ida was predeceased by her sister Geraldine and was also predeceased by her long-time friend and companion, Steve Popovich.
In 1955, Ida married the late Edgar Mason Young of Uniontown, PA and is survived by their children, Edgar Young, Jr. and his wife Sharon of Boone, NC, Terri (Young) Schaeffer and her late husband Paul of Uniontown, PA , and Jeffrey Young of Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

At home, Ida was happiest in the kitchen preparing meals for her family; one of the many ways she would show all of the unconditional love she had to offer.
She also treasured her many lifelong friends and loved nothing more than chatting with them while sharing her witty turns of phrase that had everyone laughing til they cried.
She will be missed by all who have known and loved her.
