On May 20, 2017, Veronica Catherine Young, of Flushing, NY and Manassas Park, VA, died at

her residence at Greenspring Retirement Village in Springfield, VA. All of whom had the good

fortune of knowing her will miss her wit, wisdom and family stories.

Lifetime homemaker and wife of 65 years, she is preceded in death by her husband Dickson F.

Young. She is survived by her son, Dickson Young and his wife Brigette Perry of Oakton, VA

and her grandson, Dickson John Anthony Young of Clarendon, VA. She was a remarkable

woman who was devoted to her family and will be sorely missed. She took great pride in the

accomplishments of her son and grandson, who credit her inspiration and prayers for their

success. She was a person of great faith and a Roman Catholic her entire life. Since the death of

her spouse, she has prayed for a timely reunion with the love of her life.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be made

at Demaine Funeral Home’s website at In lieu of

flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her behalf to the Salvation Army.
