Obituary for Ruth Flynn

Peoria-Ruth Flynn, 90, of Peoria, IL., passed away on Monday, February 5th, 2018, at Methodist Medical Center, surrounded by her family.

Ruth was born on April 3, 1927, a daughter of Michael J. and Edna P. (Black) Traynor, in northern Minnesota where she would often say, it was closer to go to Canada than it was to go to school.

She married Richard Flynn on October 5, 1946.  He preceded her in death in 2000 in Tucson, Arizona.  She was also preceded in death by one daughter, Kate and one grandson, Chad.

She is survived by eight children; Amy Jane Flynn of Peoria, IL, Annie Burgad of Missoula, MT, Mary Wilson (Ed) of Delavan, IL, Patti Lewis (Tom), of Lawrenceburg, IN, Karen Carter (Dan) of East Peoria, IL, Mike Flynn (Becky) of Bozeman, MT, Tom Flynn (Margaret) of Billings, MT, Paul Flynn (Amy) of Glasford, IL; 38 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren.

Ruth was a homemaker and a talented seamstress.
