Nora "Nuala" Lynn, 93, of Quakertown, PA, passed away peacefully at home on April 3, 2022. Nora was born in County Kerry, Ireland, on June 24, 1928, to the late Bartholomew and Hannah O'Sullivan. She was married to the late Joseph Charles Lynn for 58 years until he died in 2013.
Nora formed an instant connection with everyone she met. She was a kind, gentle spirit who worked hard at whatever she was doing, striving for perfection. She adored chatting with people, keeping up with the news, eating good food, and drinking a cup of Irish tea -- brewed just right. Nora loved to bake. She was known for the light, flaky crusts of her pies, which left one craving another slice, and then another. Most of all, Nora loved being outside, working in the yard and visiting with friends and neighbors. The farmer's daughter never lost her passion for toiling in the soil.
Nora came to the United States in 1952 with her sister Mary Anne. They lived in Alexandria, VA, commuting into Washington, DC. Nora worked at the hat shop on 7th Street while taking evening business classes. She then worked at the American Chemical Society. She loved both jobs. Her diligence and attention to detail endeared her to both employers. She married Joe in 1955.
Nora volunteered at multiple organizations, including the American Red Cross, Meals on Wheels, and the Quakertown Community Hospital. She was a member of the Women's Club of Quakertown.
Nora is survived by her children Rose Marie (Al) Sweeney, Kathleen Lynn, Patricia (David) Howells, Kevin Lynn, and Paul (Kelley) Lynn; daughter-in-law Linda Lynn; grandchildren Brandon, Brett, Christina, Joey, Adam, and Ashley; great grandchildren Darren, Jayce, Jailynn, Easton, Aydn, and Garrett; sisters Kitty O'Leary, Pauline Cronin, and Margaret (Jerry) O'Hara; scores of nieces and nephews; and many other loving family and friends. She is predeceased by her parents; husband; son Joseph Lynn; and sister Mary Anne Golik.
All are invited to a viewing from 10:30-11:20am, and a mass at 11:30am, on Monday, April 11, both at St. Isidore's Roman Catholic Church, 2545 W. Pumping Station Rd., Quakertown, PA 18951.
A special, heartfelt thanks to the staff of St. Luke's Hospice, who, over the past four months, provided the critical support that enabled Nora to live at home until her death. You honored her wishes, and treated her like she was your own mother. She loved you dearly.
