Nora E. Driscoll (Lynch), age 88, wife of the late J. Frank Driscoll, of Milton, MA and Palm Beach Gardens, FL passed away on January 24th, surrounded by her loving family. Nora is survived by six devoted children, Mary Ellen Gross and her husband Charles of Timnath, CO, Francis J. Driscoll and his wife Grace of Milton, Ann Marie Driscoll of S. Boston, Noreen D. Graul and her husband Thomas of E. Greenwich, RI, Paul T. Driscoll and his wife Jackie of Milton and Joan D. Canavan and her husband Brian of Milton. Nora is cherished by fifteen grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.
Nora was sister of the late Mary Deegan, the late Humphrey Lynch, Francis O’Toole, Nell Kemmy, and Joan Lynch, all of Ireland, where she is survived by 15 nieces and nephews. She loved her husband's family as well and will be missed by Mary (Nick) Driscoll, Daniel Driscoll of Dorchester, Mary Driscoll Greene of Braintree, Michael and Margaret Driscoll Holland of Hanover, Joseph and Mary Driscoll, Kathleen Driscoll Hynes and Michael and Ann Driscoll Moran, all of Milton, and Patrick and Bernadette Driscoll of Dorchester. Nora is fondly remembered by 45 nieces and nephews on that side of her family.
Nora was born and raised in Bantry Bay, County Cork, Ireland. At the age of 18, she moved to Boston to live with her Aunt. She met her husband Frank, a fellow Irish immigrant, at a local dance. They married in 1955. From there, her life was devoted to motherhood, an occupation she excelled at. She was a voracious reader, taking in anything from historical fiction to the pages of the dictionary. Nora delighted in seeing her grandchildren grow and succeed, making every effort to attend games and graduations near and far. A devout Catholic, Nora attended mass at St. Elizabeth’s until the end. She was known for reacting to interesting news with an “oh my,” but that innocent gesture belied a dry sense of humor that often surprised.
