She was born in Bay City, Mich., the daughter of Walter and Ashby (Cayce) Young. She owned and operated Apple Tree Book Shop on Warren Street, Concord, for 20 years. Athearn enjoyed gardening and photography. Survivors include a son, Peter Athearn of Stoddard; a daughter, Joan Dawson of Warner; and three grandchildren.
