LYNCH, Abbie M. -- Age 93 – Of Westwood, formerly of Dedham, passed away peacefully on October 26 surrounded by loving family.

She was the beloved daughter of Cornelius T. and Abbie M. [Daley] Lynch; and was predeceased by her loving brothers C. Thomas Lynch and his wife Helen of Norwood, John H. Lynch and his wife Mayanne of Westwood, William F. Lynch and his wife Jean, also of Westwood and her dear sister Frances G. Bergen and her husband Bill, also of Westwood. She is survived by many nieces and nephews ("the 14"), great nieces and nephews, a great - great niece, and a great - great nephew, each of whom she doted upon. She is also survived by many dear friends, including her best friend Dolly Flaherty.

Abbie was a proud member of the Dedham High School Class of 1944; and a longtime employee of both Liberty Mutual, and later The New England Telephone Company (Nynex) where she worked until her retirement. Family though meant everything to Abbie. For decades, she hosted family dinners every Sunday afternoon, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners every year, and a breakfast every Easter Sunday. Blessed with a natural athletic ability, she loved playing rather than watching sports, and shared her love of skiing with her nieces and nephews, taking members of "the 14" on trips to ski slopes around New England. She was a loving aunt, the go-to babysitter with a huge personality, generous spirit, tremendous sense of humor and a million stories. We will all cherish her memory and miss her.
