Ann Lynch, age 91 and a lifelong resident of Old Forge, passed away Thursday evening at Linwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Scranton.
Born in Old Forge on January 16, 1933, and daughter of the late Francis and Katherine (Coyne) Lynch, Ann was a graduate of the former Saint Ann’s High School before earning her degree from Lackawanna Business School.
A retired business clerk, she last worked for Tobyhanna Army Depot prior to her retirement.
Ann was quiet and enjoyed keeping to herself, but she was undoubtedly kind to those she loved. She loved scratch-off Lotto tickets and a good game of cell phone solitaire.
Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a longtime member of St. Lawrence O’Toole Church in Old Forge, prior to its closure, and more recently Prince of Peace Parish.
She is survived by eight nieces and nephews including Ann Quinnan and husband Tom of Covington Twp., Rita Yuhas of Duryea, Maureen Walsh and husband Michael Pruiksma of Va., Patricia North and husband Robin of Stroudsburg, Mary Butt and husband Kenneth of N.J., Jeannie Lynch of N.J., Mary Dombrowski of Md., Vincent Confroy and wife Mary Ann of Fallingston, and many great nieces and great nephews and great-great nieces and great-great nephews.
The last of the five Lynch siblings, Ann was also preceded in death by a brother, Francis Lynch, and sisters, Terese Walsh, Mary Confroy and Helen Farley; nieces, Kathryn Cimo and Eileen Garner; nephews, Francis, Joseph and Michael Lynch and James Walsh; and a great niece, Kaitlin Mulholland.
Her family would like to acknowledge and thank the entire staffs of Linwood Health Care Center, Compassionate Care Hospice and Old Forge’s Serenity Care for the collective kindness and compassion shown to both Ann and her family throughout her illness.
Funeral services will begin on Tuesday at 9:30 AM from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with a 10:00 AM Mass of Christian Burial at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Prince of Peace Parish, in Old Forge to be celebrated by Rev. August Ricciardi, Pastor. Burial will follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Scranton.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Tuesday from 8:30-9:30 AM at the funeral home.
Memorial contributions may be made in Ann’s name to Meals on Wheels of NEPA c/o 541 Wyoming Ave, Scranton, PA 18509.
