Dorothy Eleanor Young, born on the 19th of May, 1925 in Adams, Nebraska, passed on from this life on the 20th of March, 2024. A devoted daughter, loving wife, nurturing mother, and cherished member of her community, Dorothy lived a life full of dedication, support, and humility.

Dorothy married the love of her life, Clyde Young, in August of 1947. She was a supportive and loving wife until his passing. Dorothy was a dedicated educator with a master’s degree in education. She taught in schools in Virginia, Sterling, and Adams in Nebraska, bringing her passion for learning to countless students. Even after retiring, she and her husband owned and operated several Taco John's restaurants. Her humble nature did not allow her to boast about her accomplishments, but those who knew her saw her dedication and commitment. Dorothy was also an active member of the United Methodist Church in Adams and the Adams VFW & Women's Auxiliary, where she offered her support to her fellow members.

In her leisure time, Dorothy enjoyed the game of tennis. She also loved music and found joy in playing the piano. Her love for traveling took her to various places. The pages of numerous books offered her a window to different worlds and perspectives. However, what mattered most to Dorothy was spending time with her family. Her love and care were the support system for her loved ones.

Dorothy is survived by her son, Jim (Carol) Young of Adams; grandchildren Lisa (Scott) Turan, Melissa (Lynn) Grant, Natalie (Nathan) Fredrickson, Jameson Young, and Jonathan (Jessica) Young; 6 great grandchildren; brother Bill (Norma) Burrows of Adams; and several nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father, Chase Burrows, mother, Blanche (Graves) Burrows, husband, Clyde Young, daughter, Carol Ann House, and sister, Roberta (Norman) Schmid.
