Midge Ahlers

Midge Ahlers (nee Young), 81, of West Deptford, NJ, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 5, 2020, with her loving family by her side.


A very sweet and kind women, Midge had an open door policy at her home. She always welcomed everyone and would help in any way she could for those in need - whether human or animal. Midge was an avid animal lover and adored every pet she ever had.

Midge enjoyed baking sweet treats for her family and friends and everyone loved her homemade chocolate and fudge. Celebrations were made special by her infamous homemade Lasagna that everyone loved. She was truly funny, most of the time without even knowing. Even her facial expressions were priceless. Her cryptic text messages, daily butt-dials and "Midge-isms" gave everyone a lifetime of happy memories to share and enjoy for years to come.


She is the beloved Wife of the late Thomas Ahlers, Jr.; devoted mother to Felicia Dragone (Salvatore) of Philadelphia, PA and Robert Young (Kimberly) of Woolwich, NJ; loving grandmother of Sal and Anthony Dragone, Kris (Grant) Stromberg, and Kelly and Kody Basile; dear sister to Bobbie Young and Nikki (Barry) Hess. Midge is also survived by Cyndi Areias and all of her grand furbabies. Midge is predeceased by her parents, Robert and Mildred (nee Hirschman) Young.
