Joan Lynch-Corrigan (nee Quinlivan)
November 19, 1936 – May 5, 2020
Joan was born and raised in Hastings. In her early years she worked as a Teacher in a one room school house; until she met and married Leon Lynch. Together they raised seven children, Maureen, Marie (predeceased), Barb, Lorrie, Mary Lee, Leon and Ken. She was a stay-at-home Mom until they were all in school, after which she returned to teaching. Joan was a Teacher to developmentally delayed children – her classroom was initially in the basement of St. George’s Church, but was later moved into a newly built centre in Oshawa. She loved her work.
Joan is predeceased by her husband Leon (1979). She later remarried and soon after enjoyed her retirement years: travelling, reading books and spending time with her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Many friends and family knew that Joan’s passion also included what we refer to as her 3 C’s: Cards, Casinos and Costco; and as a result of the latter her basement was always well stocked and toilet paper would not have been an issue for her in these recent challenging times.
She is dearly missed by her extended Lynch family, her two sisters – Pat and Marie and her great friends – Carol Norris and Patsy Penny. She is fondly remembered by Joe and the rest of the Corrigan Family.
Our sincere thank-you to the compassionate caregivers at Wynfield’s long term care home – McLaughlin Wing. Our Family deeply appreciates how attentive and caring they were towards our Mother.
If desired, memorial donations to the Heart and Stoke Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be made at
A celebration of her life will take place a date at a future date.

It is with my deepest sympathy I extend my thoughts and prayers to Joe and the family he shared with Joan. I worked with Joan in the late 70's to mid 80's at Applewood Center. Joan was a wonderful team member, she was kind and respectful to staff and students. Joan often shared wonderful stories of her own children. Those stories I am sure are part of the memories for her children. She was very proud of teaching children with special needs. Joan's smile and laugh is so thing I will always remember. Stay safe at this time and keep those wonderful memories close. Bev

Our deepest sympathy in the loss of such a caring and loving person. Joan would light up the room with her joy in life and distinctive laugh. I remember years of visiting and the laughter and silliness our parents (Joan & Leon, Gus & Ella) would get up to. Another of my memories was Joan and Joe visiting us in Nova Scotia with the truck camper and going to a weekend music festival with us 'just because'
I know that Mom and Dad will greatly miss their card partner and friend.
Love Sue & Darrell Rhynold, Gus & Ella Sheehan

Sending my deepest condolences to all the Lynch families.
I met Joan in 1989 when she was working with my son Tyler with special needs. Tyler really liked her and so did l. Joan was one of the few people that my son listened to, she was always so kind and patient with him.
I’m so sorry for your loss, Joan will be missed by all.
