                                    With great sadness, heartbreak and loss we announce the passing of our Matriarch;

Robertta Mary (Adams) Lynch


"Robbie" was married to her husband, her "Joe" for 57 years. Both were forever dedicated to each other. As Matriarch and assistant matriarch both enjoyed a wonderful life together filled with memories that could fill a thousand plus page novel. He will forever love you as his "Robbie".


A loving and caring Mom to her Children and their soulmates. A loving Grandmother to her grandkids whom she cherished. A great grandma to Xander whom she loved and adored. A loving Sister and an Aunt "Robbie " to many nieces and nephews.


Her biggest love of life was her family. She loved holidays with all its decorations, joy and happiness. A devout Christian, A family matriarch guided by Jesus. All her energy and attention were focused on family. Ma was an active Mom who was forever and always involved in her children’s upbringing from scout leader, photographer for Savin Hill baseball league where she loved to capture all the children in the community enjoying the game and its joyous moments. She enjoyed working with friends James Drury, Bill Hollis and others whom had organized and managed the Savin Hill baseball league.


To her grandchildren she was known as nanna and or Ninna. With the addition of new family members she loved life more and more.

She was a community Mom to many of her Children's soulmates and friends as they were extended family whom she loved as her own from Amy, Cecelia, Rita, Dave, Justin and hundreds of other friends of her children and grandchildren. 


She enjoyed trips to Canobie lake park with her children and then grandchildren. Family gatherings, family trips and vacations were her happiness and fulfillment of life. She loved decorating for the holidays and preparing holiday meals as she was the best chef. She enjoyed doing arts and crafts with all her children, grandchildren and her husband "Joe". She enjoyed her quiet time where she spent countless hours coloring beautiful flowers and colorful scenes of which she would give to her grandchildren and great grandchild Xander. She enjoyed doing her 1000s of sudoku puzzles and also enjoyed completing puzzles.


One of her greatest pastimes was watching reruns of the Waltons, Little House On the Prairie, Everyone Loves Raymond, and Days of Our Lives among many others. She exemplified all the moments and life lessons from these shows in her role as Mom and Matriarch. She always demanded honesty, as Dad would say, "they are in there giving confession to mom". Values, virtues and a love, respect and understanding of God and his great loving power is how she taught unto family and friends of all her family members.


Robertta's professional life entailed a wide spectrum of work places. She was involved with teaching employees of the city on computer programming. She worked for a Joel Weisan in Newton in the same capacity. She worked on candidate Ray Flynn’s successful campaign for Mayor of Boston as a volunteer and became the leading scheduler for his campaign. This all lead up to one of her Childrens proudest memories as newly elected Mayor Ray Flynn recognized Robertta Lynch in his victory speech as being integral to his win. Robertta then enjoyed working in constituent services for the Mayor. As part of the job, she had a pass to cross yellow tape lines throughout the city at community tragedies such as house fires. As a representative for the Mayor, she would then secure shelter, food, and all needs of the victims of these tragedies. She was a manager at Cumberlands for years. She was also manager of Subway in Foxboro where she would remember Drew Bledsoe and some other Patriot players, one of which complained about subway getting rid of the coupons that were punched for a free sub. She would talk of the many memories from all her work places. She was the family accountant as she was known to be very smart and precise with figures.


Mrs. Lynch, loving Wife, Mom, Grandmother was never absent in love for family as she fulfilled and blessed us all with her love and care. We all will greatly miss her smile, her love, her care and direction always.
