Lyn Mack, 67

Lyn Mack, 67, of Mesa, Arizona, passed away suddenly from acute peritonitis on Friday, January 29, 2021.

Lyn was born in New Haven on Oct. 12, 1953.

She attended grades K–12 in Weston, graduating with Weston High School’s first class in 1971. She then studied at The National Academy of Hairdressing in Norwalk, receiving her state license for cosmetology in 1972.

She lived in Georgetown, Danbury, Weston, and New Haven. In Weston she met Larry Gene Welty, a computer programmer with Wiltek Corp. of Norwalk; they married in 1989. They made their home in New Haven and Fairfield; in the 1990s they moved to Minnesota. In 2015 Lyn and Larry relocated to Mesa, AZ.

Lyn was artistically gifted: she painted, made small sculptures in a variety of media, and enjoyed many different crafts in addition to cooking and decorating. She took classes and workshops at the City of Mesa Downtown Senior Center, and maintained a patio cactus garden at her home.

For those who knew Lyn, she had a heart of gold, spoke softly and kindly, and loved living her life. Although she had her ups and downs, she worked hard and never stopped loving and caring for others, including many life-long friends and her family. She will be sorely missed.

Lyn was predeceased by her parents, Jean Baker Mack and Edward Beach Mack of Mesa, AZ, formerly of Weston.

Survivors are her partner Larry Welty and her sisters, Jan Mack Northcutt and Wendy Mack Allred, all of Mesa, AZ; and an aunt and cousins, all of Phoenix.
