Elizabeth Denise Young, fondly known by those who loved her as “Neicey”, was born on November 7, 1965, in Leonardtown, MD to Betty Ann Goforth. She passed away in her home in Lexington Park, MD on July 5, 2020, surrounded by love and light.
Neicey was raised in St. Mary’s County, completing her education with the St. Mary’s County Public Schools and graduating from Leonardtown High in 1983. Later in life, Neicey would pursue her secondary education, earning an Associate’s Degree in Drug and Alcohol Counseling. Neicey would take her degree and apply it to her career at Bayside Nursing Home, Walden Sierra, Three Oaks and even volunteered on the rescue squad as an EMT.
Neicey was always willing to lend a helping hand and give a good word to anyone who may have needed it. She was a God-fearing woman and one of her passions was teaching the word of God. Neicey took her passion for the Lord and became a Deaconess at Park Hall True Holiness Church and was later a Lay Leader at Zion United Methodist Church.
