Marjorie Mary (Sottung) Flynn, age 95, of Pittsfield died Monday, February 5, 2024 at Mount Carmel Care Center where she had been a resident for the last 18 months.

Born in Pittsfield on August 21, 1928, Marj was a daughter of the late Augustus J. and Helen (Hughes) Sottung. She was a graduate of Pittsfield High School and went on to earn her degree as a medical secretary from Becker Junior College in Worcester.

Marge married William R. Flynn on November 9, 1952 at St. Teresa’s Church and grew their family shortly thereafter. Marge’s goal in life was to be a wonderful mother, and that she was. She supported her children in all their endeavors and was so proud of them all.

Mrs. Flynn was a hard worker, and spent over 25 years working in the X-Ray Department at Hillcrest Hospital. She also volunteered at the Berkshire Museum gift shop. Marj was active in several knitting groups and enjoyed the friendships she shared.

Marjorie is survived by her sons, Kevin M. Flynn and his wife Dawn of New York City and John P. Flynn of Pittsfield, her daughters, Kathleen M. Flynn and Mary Ellen Flynn, both of Cape Cod, MA, and her grandchildren, Liam Tierney, Sean Sinclair, Caitlin Guindeira, Travis Kupiec, Michael Flynn and Mai Flynn. She also leaves 4 great grandchildren, Audrey, Lauren, Justin and Declan, and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband William who died on August 21, 1997, Marj was predeceased by three sons, Shaun Flynn who died in 1957 as an infant, Michael L. Flynn who died in 1996 and William “Billy” Flynn in 2021 and her daughter, Patricia A. Flynn, who died in 2017. She was also predeceased by her sister and best friend, Karyl Murphy, and her brother Don Sottung. Even with the immense loss Marj suffered in her life, she never let that break her. She was a genuinely kind woman and always found ways to continue on with her life, even on the hardest of days.
