Notes

Patricia Rosalind Lynch Lupien, 91, was born on October 11, 1927 to William and Gertrude (Burke) Lynch in Boston, Massachusetts. She was their middle child having an older brother, Ralph and a younger brother, Paul Andrew Lynch, who resides in Jupiter, Florida.

Seventy-five years ago, Patricia Lynch and Pete (Bob) Lupien were seated next to each other on the first day of school at Medford High School in Medford, MA. The year was 1943. This was the beginning of a loving partnership lasting the rest of her life. They married on August 25, 1951 following Bob’s return from Japan at the end of World War II. Their family grew with children: Michele, Peter, Michael and Edward. Michael and Edward preceded their mother into Heaven.

The family lived in Boston, Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C. before Bob and Pat retired to Raleigh, North Carolina, 25 years ago. Patricia worked to connect her children to their new community with each move. Their family continued to grow with seven grandchildren and one great grandson. Her family was very important to her, and she will always be important to her family.

She is survived by her husband, Bob; two children, Peter (Linda) Lupien and Michelle (David) VanHalanger; grandchildren and great-grandson.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 1:00 PM at St. Raphael Catholic Church in Raleigh, NC. The family will receive visitors one hour prior.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, a charity very close to Patricia's heart. https://www.stjude.org/give/memorials-and-dedications.html?sc_icid=wtg-mm-memorial-giving

We were so sorry to hear of Pat's passing and wanted to send our love to the family. We were always so happy when Pat and Bob were on our Health Care Ministry route for Sunday communion service. It was a joy to serve her and Bob. You are all in our prayers.

Our neighbor Pay was a gentle and caring person. She never had a harsh word to say about anyone and loved her family absolutely. She will be missed by everyone in our neighborhood and everyone who knew her. She was a true "Southern Lady."

I wanted to express my sympathy to Pat's family. My son, Matthew Boretti, brought communion to Pat and found that there was a connectikon between Pat and Matthew's grand-parents, Bill and Dolly Fowler. Pat's family growing up, lived close to the Fowlers and she often baby sat for my two brothers, Billy and Danny. I knew Pat's brother, Paul, who my mom and dad "took under their wings" and he spent a great deal of time in our home. Matthew has spoken, lovingly, of both Pat and her husband. I feel blessed that this connection with Pat was recently made. My prayers will be with her loving husband and family.

Bob and family, I am saddened by the news and loss of such a beautiful soul. I so much enjoyed visiting Pat on Sundays and reminiscing of old days in Medford. When Pat spoke of my grandmother, it really touched me. I will miss her. Know she and all of you are in my prayers. Peace, Matt Boretti
