Mary was born in Boston Massachusetts to Thomas and Catherine Lynch on September 3, 1924. She went to high school at Quincy High School and graduated in 1943. She went on to a career with New England and Pacific Bell Telephone Companies, where she retired in 1988. Mary was a resident of La Crescenta CA from 1957 to 2011, and one of the original parishioners of St. James the Less Catholic Church. A devoted mother, Mary travelled to Hawaii, Virginia, Germany, Nevada and South Carolina to visit her ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Mary’s greatest joy was spending time with her family.

Warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day in every way
And forever and ever after
