Charlotte "Charlie" L. Young - Obituary


y sister passed away today, February 25, 2022. She fought the fight against cancer but it was too much. It was aggressive and awful. Now if you knew Charlotte Young or Charlie, you knew she fought. We had 9 months with her, and we made the most of it. It took her way too soon. She was only 50 years young. Kenesha Young, Zaine Butler, and Zakari Butler of Glen Burnie were her babies. She raised them herself and did a fine job of it. She was a very proud mother. Her grandbabies, Mackenzie, Noah, and Hunter were her joys. She loved them dearly and enjoyed them so much. I see her smile in their eyes. Charlie was raised in Chelmsford, MA, and moved down to Maryland when Kenesha was a baby. She stayed with her sister Missy who lived in Waldorf until she got settled. She was a graduate of Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford, MA. For the last 15+ years, she has worked at Bozzuto. Her last “job” was at Metro Point in Wheaton, MD. I say “job” but it was more than that. Her coworkers and residents were her second family. She took great comfort in the outpouring of support she received from them through this. She worried about them till the end. Her sisters, Leslie of Goffstown, NH, Mary of Nashua, NH, Samantha Cooper of Melbourne, FL, and me and my family from Winchendon, MA along with a brother Neil from Fitchburg MA, and Matt from Colorado are going to miss her so much along with many nieces and nephews who loved their Auntie Chuck! From the first time, we saw her little face. She was always a Charlie and never a Charlotte. One of her teachers said that Charlotte was a beautiful name, Charlie said I won’t answer. I’m Charlie. Even though she was the baby in the family, she taught me a lot. Forgiveness, compassion, humility, hard work, love, humor, sarcasm. Oh my, her humor! She was always quick with the comebacks. Could make you laugh and cry at the same time. Her hugs were the best. You just felt the love and caring every time she gave you one. She used to surprise us all the time. I remember one Thanksgiving, she called and asked about our plans, what time was I planning dinner, what size turkey, was Mom there yet. I told her I made a big turkey and all the fixings were going to have a lot of leftovers. She said not so much and honked the horn! She was in my driveway! Drove all the way up to Massachusetts that morning with the three kids (who did not make a peep while she was talking, very impressed about that one after 7 hours in the car!). I didn’t have as many leftovers as I thought I would. Well worth it! She went to join Mom, Dad, and Missy who are waiting for her with open arms. She will live on in our memories and always be forever Young… Family and friends are invited to celebrate Charlie's life on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, from 6 pm until 9 pm at the Kalas Funeral Home & Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Rd., Edgewater, MD Interment private.
