Mary E. Flynt, 91

January 20, 2014

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mary Elizabeth Flynt, 91, of South Street died peacefully at home on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014.

Born in Northampton in 1922, daughter of Harold L. and Effie Crowley Ames, she graduated from Northampton High School and Northampton Commercial College.

Mrs. Flynt first worked for the Headmaster Frank Boyden of Deerfield Academy, where she met her future husband, Henry L. "Hank" Flynt Jr. Following their wedding, she was employed in the president's office at Williams College.

She was widely known as a warm-hearted, engaging, friendly volunteer for more than 40 years at the former Women's Exchange and Recording for the Blind, Clark Art Institute and First Congregational Church.

Truly family and friend centered, she possessed an uncanny memory for everyone's birthday, anniversary and phone number. She was a devoted mother and loving grandmother. "Mary was my real, enduring connection with the Williamstown community — a person we shall all deeply miss," said her husband.

Besides her husband of 64 years, she leaves two daughters, Juliet Flynt and her friend Paula Wells, of Clarksburg and Cynthia Kriegel and her husband, David, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; two sons, William Flynt and his wife, Suzanne, of Dummerston, Vt., and Robert Flynt and his partner, Jeff McMahon, of Red Hook, N.Y.; two sisters, Hazel Feiker and Shirley St. John; three brothers, William Ames, Richard Ames, and Roger Ames; and four grandchildren, Clark Flynt of Washington, D.C., Emma Flynt of Dummerston, and Sophie and Malcolm Kriegel of Brooklyn.

She was predeceased by her brother Frederick Ames.

FUNERAL NOTICE — There will be a celebration of Mrs. Flynt's life at the Williams Inn on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 4 to 6. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to First Congregational Church of Williamstown or Historic Deerfield, Deerfield, MA 01342. Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals is in charge of arrangements.
