      Emma Conway Young, 92, a long time resident of Hereford Township, passed 

away on Monday, October 6, 2020 in Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest.  The widow of the late John D. Young, Emma was born in Philadelphia and was the daughter of Beatrice (Perry) and Bernard H. Wagner. 

            An educator, Emma taught for 30 years in the Upper Perkiomen School District.  For most of her career

            Emma is survived by her three stepchildren.  She will be especially missed by her grandchildren Elizabeth LeMay, Rachael Lyall, William Young, Daniel Young, Rebecca Hilgar, and Ryan Hickey and her three great grandchildren Carter and Blake Lyall and Aidan Young.  She is also survived by her five nieces and nephews.   Emma was predeceased by her first husband Bruce Conway.
