Obituary for Helen T Lynch

Hamilton, NJ
Helen Teresa Lynch, 97 of Shamokin, PA, entered into God’s care on Sunday, May 10, 2020, at Hamilton Grove Nursing Home in Hamilton, NJ. She was born in Mahanoy City, PA, on December 29, 1922 to Edward Allar and Ellen (King) Allar. She was the youngest of nine children and the last surviving child.

Helen graduated from high school in 1940 and moved to Philadelphia to work for a defense contractor during World War II. After the war, Helen married Jack Lynch on October 31, 1945, and resided in Shamokin where she was a homemaker while her two children were in school. After they both graduated, she worked for several clothing manufacturers in the Shamokin area.

Helen enjoyed raising her family, loved to bake, was an avid fan of the Phillies, and always loved to share a cold beer with friends on weekends at Knoebel Park. Her love of life, contagious laugh and great sense of humor will always be remembered. She was an active member of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and helped in fund raising efforts by making pierogis.

Helen was predeceased by her husband, Jack; her parents Edward and Ellen Allar, her eight siblings, and her son-in-law George Seaman. She is survived by her two children: her son and daughter-in-law Michael and Marlene Lynch of Titusville, NJ, and her daughter Kathleen Seaman of Eastampton, NJ; five grandchildren: Megan Schatz, Matt Seaman, Jennifer Menichillo, Jillian Larned and Kerry Seaman; and eleven great grandchildren.

The family is grateful to the staff at Hamilton Grove and especially, Aquilla and Ebony who made Helen’s last days comfortable.

Funeral service will be private with burial in All Saints Cemetery in Elysburg, PA. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made in Helen’s name to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no funeral service at this time. Arrangements are by the Wilson-Apple Funeral Home, Pennington. Condolences are welcome at
