Diana J. (Fowler) Flynn

June 5, 1949 ~ June 9, 2018 (age 69)

It is with great sadness that the family of Dian Flynn announces her passing after a heroic battle, on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the age of 69 years.

Dian is a native of Lorain, graduated from Lorain High School in 1967, attended Lorain County Community College, and devoted much or her career and personal time to helping others. She worked at St. Mary’s Parish rectory for several years, then for Lorain County Department of Job and Family Services. After retirement, she continued to be a loyal participant in the church, enjoyed singing with the church choir, and travelled to many retirement and assisted living facilities to bring smiles to the faces of their residents through song and conversation. Her smile alone would make you smile.
