Jeanne Hall Lynch

Jeanne Hall Lynch passed from this life to the next on May 23, 2024. She was born Helen Jeanne Hall in Birmingham, Alabama, on May 20, 1933, the second child to Clarence C. Hall and Helen Hitt Hall.

She was a graduate of Wetumpka High School, Alabama Polytechnic Institute (API, later to become Auburn University) with both a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Masters in History, and Louisiana Tech with a Masters in Child Development. During a long career as a kindergarten teacher, Jeanne was a member of LACUS, Delta Kappa Gamma, P.E.O., and DAR.

She married Wesley Otis (W.O.) Lynch, Jr. on September 1, 1951. Following a brief employment at API, W.O. accepted a call to ministry. Upon graduation from seminary, they embarked on 34 years of ministry together in the Methodist Church, serving appointments in Shongaloo, Cotton Valley, Minden, Ruston, Lafayette, Shreveport and New Orleans.

Jeanne is preceded in death by her husband, Rev. W. O. Lynch, Jr.; parents, C.C. and Helen Hall; and her brothers, John C. Hall and Philip C. Hall; and brother-inlaw, Donald H. Moultrie.

She is survived by her siblings, Henry E. Hall (Jane) and Mary Elizabeth “Ibbie” Hall Moultrie ( Don); her sisters- in- law, Faye Hall (John) and Mary Hall (Philip); her 4 children and their spouses, Wesley O. Lynch, III, DDS, (Deborah), Libbi Lynch Ellis ( Chaplin Col. Jeff, ret.), Alicia Lynch, David C. Lynch ( Cheryl, Ph. D.); her 12 grandchildren and their spouses, Wesley O. Lynch, IV (Lori), Johna-than D. Lynch, Stephen A. Lynch ( Cassidy), Emily Ellis, Olivia Ellis Sanders (Matthew), Adelai Lynch, Tabby Self (Shane), Mindy Menard; and 8 great-grandchildren, Brynn Lynch, Nora Lynch, Vivienne Lynch, Dominic Self, Alex Self, Emily Self, Ian LeMarie- Menard and Piper LeMarie-Menard.

Jeanne and W.O., lovingly known as Meme and Papa, were devoted to their family. In retirement, they were active in their church and with their church family. They enjoyed traveling throughout their married life. They were fond of camping in the U.S., including trips to Alaska.

They made several international trips to Canada and Europe. They loved to attend storytelling festivals. They often shared these experiences with their siblings, children, and grandchildren.

Jeanne’s ashes will be buried in Providence Cemetery, in Titus, Alabama. Jeanne lived a full and wonderful life, and now she is whole again in our Lord’s arms and with loved ones.

A special thank you to the loving caregivers at The Arbor, Best Home Health, and Premier Hospice.
