Edna Faye Young, 72, of Hanover, PA previously of Westminster, entered into God¿¿¿s garden on Monday, March 2, 2015 from Johns Hopkins Medical Center following a brave battle with Myelodysplasia. Born on Saturday, May 16, 1942 in Cooksville, MD, she was a daughter of the late Oliver and Mary Simms Burns. She attended Lisbon High School, then transferred to Howard High School and later married Theodore W. Young on December 5, 1959. While raising her daughters and taking care of her household, Faye was active in Carroll County, Maryland 4-H, leading and mentoring youth for many years. Faye also worked for her sister, Jeanette at MTS, in Sykesville, MD. Additionally, she served as a craft instructor for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. After moving to Hanover, she owned and operated The Flower Peddler on York Street, then worked alongside her daughters Helen and Barbie, at the Black Rose of Hanover Tea Room. Faye was a member of Trinity Church of the Nazarene and provided their altar flowers for many years. Faye had an eye for detail and loved creating beautiful things for her family and friends. An avid gardener, she found peace and serenity in the many happy hours spent gardening with her husband. At the end of the day, when she laid down the garden spade or the glue gun, you could find her on her screen porch enjoying a good book. From tea parties to birthday cakes, craft projects and puzzles, gin rummy and Scrabble, Faye was dedicated to enjoying her grandchildren and watching them grow. In addition to her loving husband of 55 years, she is survived by three daughters, Helen L.
