On November 10, 2022, Dorothy Anna Young (Dottie) passed peacefully in Harlingen, Texas. She was 61 years old. Dorothy was born on September 29th, 1961 in San Benito. She graduated from San Benito High School in 1980. Then later attended Victoria College where she became a certified EMT to help the lives of others. She was a beloved divorced mother of three who adored her children and put them first no matter what. In her early life, she enjoyed playing sports such as softball, and track and field while in high school until having her first born in August of 1980. After the birth of her first son, Michael, she devoted her life to being an amazing hardworking mother. In her spare time she loved to volunteer for organizations such as Boy Scouts of America where she was a Den Mother turned Scout Leader for several years; American Red Cross volunteer where she taught CPR classes, and Adopt-A-Beach volunteer just to name a few. She enjoyed helping out the community and getting her kids involved. She also enjoyed playing card games, board games and puzzles almost as much as she loved going out and socializing with her dear friends. She was most known for her witty sense of humor and for always wearing her cowboy hat. She was preceded in death by her parents Harald Young and Petra Quintanilla.
