It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend to many, Mary Lynch, on Thurs., July 30, 2015.
Mary was the devoted and loving wife of the late Francis Lynch (2000) for 52 years.

Mary was predeceased by her parents, Edward and Bridgit Gannon (nee Chambers), and her brother, Ewen Gannon (Jessie).
Mary was a devoted Catholic and a long-time member of St. Mary’s Parish in Chesterville. Her faith gave her strength to endure. She loved her farming life and Irish roots. She was always willing to lend a helping hand. She leaves behind many good and long-time friends in the Chesterville area and at the Hartford Retirement Residence.
