          Linda J. Lynch, 75, of Powers, Michigan, passed away on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at home, with her family by her side. She was born on June 25, 1947, in Newberry, Michigan, daughter of the late Joseph and Anna (Nolde) Kirschner. Linda grew up in Powers, and graduated from North Central Area High School in 1965.

She loved spending time with her family and friends, and especially her two grandchildren, whom she adored.
          Linda is survived by her two children: Michael Lynch of Carney, and Peter (Kristi) Lynch of Dubuque, IA; two grandchildren, Gabriel and Gwen Lynch; two sisters, Joanne Labelle and Carlyn (Jim) Lynch; two brothers, Ken (Pam) Kirschner and Joseph Kirschner; and many nieces and nephews.

Benny Mathew officiating. Burial will follow services in the Nadeau Township Cemetery. A gathering will then be held at the Lynch home in Powers.

  • "I worked with Linda for many years at the dental office. We were of similar ages and had lots in common including the love of gin and tonic. We remained in contact for a few years after retirement but then drifted apart. I was saddened to hear of her death and extend my sincere sympathy to her family."
