SAN ANGELO Peace reigned in the life of Dorothy Faye Young with her journey to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Saturday, July 20, 2013, at the age of 69. She awaits her beloved husband of 53 years, Bobby Young Sr.; son Robby Young Jr.; daughter Paula Shelton; son Shawn Young; sisters Lisa Price and Vanessa Wright; grandchildren Raven Wilcox, Rachel and Brandy Young, Stephanie and Katie Shelton; great-grandchildren Max Wilcox, Dilynn Workman and Ayvlin Kaye; and special friends Tammy Jones, Kathy Dill, Sherry Young and Don Ware. Her love of humor connected her to people from all walks of life; bringing a wealth of laughter to those who knew her. The humorous and feisty life she lived brought her to many dedicated hours at Angelo Civic Theater. She began this stroll through life in 1991, with her performance in "Steel Magnolias" and ending with "Southern Hospitality" in 2010. A few of her most memorable performances include "Once Upon A Hardwood Floor" and "Daddy's Dying Whose Got the Will" along with a host of others. Her acting was extended to T.V. commercials for Medical Arts Pharmacy where she had the ability to bring a smile to the faces of even those unknown to her. Preceding her in death are her parents, Leonard and Billie Wright Sr.; her twin brother, "Buzzy" Wright, Leonard (Jr.) Wright Jr.; and sister Linda Grace Lynch. A very special thank you to all the Hospice nurses and chaplain who worked lovingly and tirelessly to make life for our family easier. Also, thank you to all for your prayers, time and comforting words. For those attending services, Johnson's Funeral Home chapel will be the location at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 24, 2013, with Brother Randy Hines officiating. Burial will follow in Fairmount Cemetery. Family visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, 2013, at Johnson's Funeral Home. Family and friends may sign the online register book at johnsons-funeralhome.com.
