Lynch, Marie Jeanette (27 December 1922 – 30 July 2018)

Marie J. Lynch, age 95, of Neillsville, WI died on July 30, 2018.

Marie Kubat Lynch’s life started when the Kubat Family sailed to America from Czechoslovakia moving permanently to the Neillsville area. Marie’s parents farmed until her father was gorged by a bull and was killed. The family then moved into town. Marie’s mother was 33 years old when she had her and she was her first child. Marie’s mother re-married and she gained a sister.

Marie met and married her high school sweetheart Norman Lynch. They were married Oct. 13, 1942; before Norman was sent overseas to serve his country. They were married over 65 years.

Marie lived her life in service, praise, and glory to our Lord. Her church family was at St. Mary’s in Neillsville, where she used to her talents to teach CCD for many years.

Marie was a homemaker and lifelong resident of Neillsville with many strong ties to the community. Her strong faith was a lifelong guide that was a beacon that carried her through the good times, as well as the bad times. Her strong will and quick wit and keen sense of humor will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to be in her company.

Marie & Norman enjoyed square dancing around the Wisconsin area and was well known for making all her own square-dancing outfits.

Marie is survived by: son-Richard (and Carolyn), son-John, and daughter-Charlotte. Many other relatives, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren and numerous friends.
