Lorraine Marie Flynn, 89

EAST LIVERPOOL – Lorraine Marie Flynn slipped peacefully into Heaven at 5:40 p.m. Sunday, May 18, 2014 at Calcutta Health Care Center in East Liverpool at the age of 89. Lorraine, who was born and raised in Pittsburgh, had come to this area about a year ago to be nearer to family, who were at her side at the time of her death.

She was born on Feb. 7, 1925, a daughter of the late Michael and Marcella Shiegg Hajduk. Following her graduation in 1943 from the Annunciation School in Pittsburgh, she was associated with the Holy Childhood Organization for several years until her marriage to Thomas M. Flynn on Jan. 4, 1947. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loved caring for her home and her family, and was a lifelong fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Her faith was of utmost importance to her, and she was a member of the Saints Simon and Jude Catholic Church in Pittsburgh.

Lorraine leaves behind two daughters and a son: Nancy Rogers and her husband, Michael, of East Liverpool; Janet Montgomery and her husband, Jim, of Scott Township, Pa.; and Daniel T. Flynn of Liverpool, N.Y. There are eight beloved grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren, along with her brother, Edward Michael Hajduk of Scott Township, and nephew Larry Flowers and his wife, Edna, of Pittsburgh.

In addition to her parents and her husband, who died on Sept. 23, 2010, Lorraine was preceded in death by two sisters, Rita Frances Flowers and Norma Claire Marsic.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Saints Simon and Jude Catholic Church, 1607 Greentree Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15220, with Father Jay Donahue as the celebrant. Lorraine will be laid to rest at the Christ Our Redeemer Cemetery in Pittsburgh following the Mass.

Friends may visit at the Dawson Funeral Home on Tuesday (today), where the family will be present from 5 to 8 p.m.

The family wishes to thank Crossroads Assisted Living, Calcutta Health Care Center and Southern Care Hospice for their tender, loving care of Lorraine.
