OBITUARY: Veronica A. (Crosson) Flynn, 58

WILMINGTON, MA — Veronica A. (Crosson) Flynn, of Wilmington, 58, passed away peacefully, after an illness September 16, 2017.

Devoted mother of Sean and Brian Flynn of Wilmington. Beloved sister of Jessica, Christopher, Benjamin and Jennifer Crosson, and aunt to Andrew, Noah and Chris.

Born and raised in South Bend, IN, Veronica earned a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame and a Master of Public Health from the University of Michigan. She initially worked in patient education before pursuing a teaching career shortly after moving to Boston in 1994. She was a compassionate mentor for generations of students at Saugus High, where she taught Health and Stress Management for twenty years. Her classroom was a safe haven, especially on Friday afternoons when she hosted the school’s first Anime Club. Veronica will be remembered for her liveliness, laughter, creativity, love of nature and physical activity, lifelong devotion to children, and most of all for her warmth and generosity.

In accordance with the wishes of the family, memorial services were private. Donations in her memory may be made to the Veronica Flynn Memorial Fund, c/o Webster Federal Credit Union, 509 Main St., Saugus MA 01906. All donations will go towards a room to be named in Veronica’s honor at the planned new Saugus High School, currently under design.
