Joyce M. Young, 85, passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer on Thursday, May 19, 2022, in Beachwood, Ohio.
A native of Pennsylvania and an enterprise , female executive, Joyce was the President and Owner of Young Galvanizing in Pulaski, PA for over a decade.
She loved to travel and saw every state in the USA and many countries across the globe. Her life changed after she visited Israel and prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. Joyce gave all of herself and dedicated her life to her family and friends and to those less fortunate or in need. She spent her time with people, visiting, sharing a meal, remembering a birthday or a special event. She called, she wrote, and she came through the years and over the miles. We cannot think of better words to be said about a human being.
She loved the opera, the museum , the ballet, and all things New York. She could navigate the streets like a tour guide!
Joyce’s heart was in Arizona where her close friends became and remain family. We will miss her dearly. We feel her presence and peace all around.
Preceded in death by her parents Mike and Hazel Flak; beloved husband Jack; stepson Jason; brothers DeWayne and Gordon; brother-in-law Tito. She is survived by her stepdaughters Neal and Dana; beloved sister Carole; her sisters-in-law Helen and Marceen; and countless nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make donations to St. John’s Lutheran Church or The American Cancer Society or A Women’s Shelter of your choice.
A Celebration of Joyce’s life will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at 11am at the St. John’s Lutheran Church located at 2601 Highland Ave., New Castle, PA 16105.
