Mary Elizabeth (LaMontagne) Lynd

April 17, 1944 — June 13, 2024

Mary Elizabeth (LaMontagne) Lynd was born on April 17, 1944 in Mexico City, Mexico to Robert Weir LaMontagne and Mary Elizabeth (Ring) LaMontagne and passed away June 13, 2024 in Austin, TX. Her love of art and painting was inspired there by her mother and continued throughout her life. After moving to Houston, Texas in 1968 with her family, she soon met her beloved husband. She married Norman Jeff Lynd in 1971, and they built a family together in Houston, Texas. As a couple they attended Christ Church Cathedral in Houston for over three decades. During that time, she served on the Altar Guild and was a founding member of the Mary and Martha Guild. 

She is survived by her son, Arthur Jeff Lynd of Austin; her daughter, Elisa Lynd Lellios, and her husband George of Holden, Massachusetts; two granddaughters, Zoe and Mia; her brother, Gregg LaMontagne and his wife Carolyn Foote of Austin; many nieces, nephews, grandnephews, grandnieces and friends. She is predeceased by her husband, Norman, her brothers, Edward and John, and her sister, Catherine. 

She was a light to all who met her. She was the first to paint, sew or bake gifts for friends celebrating new babies or life changes. Her pecan pies and banana bread were coveted treats at every family gathering. 

Memorial Service and interment of ashes will be held at Christ Church Cathedral, 1117 Texas Avenue, Houston, TX on Thursday, August 1st at 1:00 pm. Memorial donations can be made to the American Cancer Society.
