Clara Lynch was born in Huntington, Pa.
She had moved to Diamond Bar, Calif., in 1989 to be with her son, William T. Lynch, after having lived in Dallas, Texas, with another son, Richard E. Lynch, since 1977.
Mrs. Lynch loved the Lord since early childhood and joined The Aldan Union Church, Aldan, Pa., when the family moved to Aldan in 1936.
Much of her time was spent in the nursery and toddler department so young mothers could enjoy the worship services.
Mrs. Lynch's life was full of music. She directed one of the earliest choirs at Aldan Union Church. A group of ladies met every Thursday to rehearse in the Lynch living room. Mrs. Lynch arranged most of their music.
Her son, Richard, was involved with a trio at the church with Howard Grace, Don Apgar and Jack Neely. Mrs. Lynch arranged all their music, which they played at the missions, churches and jails around Philadelphia accompanied by the men of the Church Council. Their home was always filled with music and boys.
When her son, Richard, joined the faculty at Appalachian Bible College in 1974, Mrs. Lynch moved to West Virginia to live on campus. She lived next door and soon took up with the students. She was known as Grammy Lynch by many of the students who would visit her regularly. She had a real ministry with the young people.
When she moved to Texas in 1977 to be with her son Richard and his wife, Eckie, you would see her in her room with a hymn book open on her lap singing hymns softly, but with great feeling. The open Bible was close by and she would be reading the word and singing the hymns she loved. She had no favorite hymn; she loved them all.
Mrs. Lynch is deeply loved by her sons, their wives, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; some called her Mimi and others called her Grammy. The favorite name of all was Mom.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert B. Lynch, on Jan. 24, 1971, and by a son, Robert B. Lynch Jr.
Survivors: Sons, William T. Lynch of Diamond Bar, Calif., James U. Lynch of Wilmington, N.C., and Richard E. Lynch of Nairobi, Kenya; eight grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and sister, Edna Messmer of Pensacola, Fla.
