Mary Ann Lynch, born on December 14, 1939, in Detroit, Michigan, peacefully passed away on May 28, 2024, in Dearborn, Michigan. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, cherished grandmother, and beloved great-grandmother.

Mary Ann’s life was a testament to resilience, grace, and unwavering love for her family. Her journey of 84 years was filled with meaningful experiences and cherished memories. Mary Ann worked at Ford Motor Co for 4 years, where she met the love of her life, Pat. Their union blossomed into a beautiful family that brought her immeasurable joy.

  • Aunt Mary Ann was a hero to me. When I went through some very tough times while a teenager, due to my family issues, Aunt Mary Ann made me feel like I was worthwhile and loved. She was as good of a person that has ever lived and I loved her dearly. Rest in Peace Aunt Mary Ann. God bless you, Uncle Pat and all of the family you loved and raised so well. Mark Lynch
