Georgette Soltis Young

June 11, 2021

Georgette Soltis Young, of Lancaster, passed away at home on Friday, June 11, 2021 following a lengthy battle with cancer. She was the daughter of the late George “Pete” and Veronica Osinkosky Soltis of North Catasauqua, PA and married to Thomas “Tom” Young of Lancaster.

Traveling to 47 states, the North Atlantic Provinces and western Canada with her husband on several “road trips” was especially enjoyed, along with earlier trips to a few countries.

I send my condolences. I knew Georgette as a fellow teacher at Kissel Hill Elementary School for many years. I always enjoyed talking with her. She was a sweet person and a dedicated teacher. She strove to do her very best for all her students. She left an impact on many lives, and made the world a better place. She will be missed! 💕❤️Karen Bamberger

I was saddened to hear that Georgette had passed away. We attended classes at Millersville and I always enjoyed our conversations. She was such a kind and gentle person who will be missed by many people whose lives she touched.May your memories bring you comfort during the days ahead.

Tom, I am so sorry for the loss of Georgette.  She went to St. Lawrence Grade School and always attended our little reunions over the years.  She was a beautiful person with a beautiful soul and I know the girls from St. Lawrence will miss her tremendously.

Dear Tom,
I lost touch with Georgette when I left Warwick. She was a loving and caring teacher, and a faithful colleague. I am so sorry for your loss!
with sincere sympathy,

     Dear Tom, I am so sorry for the loss of your wonderful wife. She was a lady. She was the best neighbor. I will miss her sweet, kind, friendly, compassionate nature so much. We had so many great backyard coversations about teaching, gardening (especially concerning weeds,) your travels, and especially about pets. She taught me more about the treatment of cats with asthma than I would have learned in the first year of veterinary school. She loved Molly, and Meisje as much as I did. The last time that I saw her, she asked me if she could pet Karma. Even being as weak as she was, she smiled and commented about Karma’s little “wiggle bump.” Please accept my most sincere condolences over the loss of Georgette. Her loss is a painful loss to everyone whose lives she touched. May your memories of her help to, at least some small way, soften the grief of her passing.
