Joan Elizabeth Morgan young – 8/4/2020

August 7th, 2020

Joan Elizabeth Morgan Young passed away on August 4, 2020 in Cape May, New Jersey surrounded by the love of her five daughters. she was 90 years old. Joan was born on April 11, 1930 in Wilkes Barre, PA to Johanna (Josephine) Breslin Morgan and James Morgan. The Morgan Family relocated to Marcus Hook, PA. where Joan completed elementary school, attended and graduated from Notre Dame Catholic High School in Moylan, PA and Misericordia School of Nursing in Philadelphia, PA. . Joan dedicated her nursing career to Labor and Delivery at both Chester Hospital and Sacred Heart Hospital in Chester, PA until her retirement from Sacred Heart in May 1992. After her retirement, Joan continued to serve in her livelong profession of nursing as a substitute school nurse in the Cape May County School District, NJ.
On April 16th, 1954, Joan started a new chapter when she married her love, Davis William Young. Together they provided a loving and caring home for their five daughters, Cathleen Austria (Ramon), Bridget Ann Young (Gary), Mary Elizabeth Peer (Robert), JoClaire Riess (Randy) and Margaret Harris (Alvin). Joan was most proud of her role as “MomMom” and “Grandmommom”. She provided undying love and many endearing memories for her thirteen grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. Her legacy will live on in each of them.
Joan relocated to their shore home in Wildwood, NJ after the passing of Dave in 1992 and then later to Cape May where she spent the remainder of her life.
Joan lived her live to the fullest, and will be remembered for her loving and caring nature, her infectious laugh, her dedication to her family and friends and ambition to serving through her devotion to her Catholic religion and many groups, such as Knights of Columbus, LAOH, Emerald Society, Elks and the American Legion. Heaven gained an angel…..

Her funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 1pm at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church 525 Washington St. Cape May, NJ.  Friends and family are invited to her viewing from 11:30-12:30 at the Spilker Funeral Home 815 Washington St. Cape May, NJ.  Burial will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery.

    I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Sacred Heart was my first job out of nursing school, and Joan welcomed me with open arms and that infectious laugh! Her retirement party was so fun! Little did I know nursing wouldn’t always be that way. She could deliver a baby as well as any doctor! Even though I didn’t get the benefits of her wisdom for very long, I hope that I still carry it with me today in the labor room at Delaware County Hospital. I’m so glad she got to enjoy her retirement with her precious family! May she Rest In Peace with the angels, because she certainly was one here on Earth!
