BUSKIRK, N.Y. -- Jeanne Prouty Flynn, 51, of Stage Road, died peacefully Saturday, April 10, 2004 at the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington,Vt. She was the beloved wife of Timothy R. Flynn.

On Aug. 20, 1977, she and Tim were married. They lived in Hoosick Falls for several years where she was a substitute teacher.

Jeanne thoroughly enjoyed raising her family of three boys.

She was the unofficial scorekeeper for many of these events.

Jeanne returned to the classroom as a volunteer at Cambridge Elementary School when Andrew started school and went on to substitute in some of the classes. Jeanne was known to the students and her children’s friends as Mrs. Flynn, the lady with the very long braid.

She enjoyed the study of genealogy and had traced her Vermont forefathers back 19 generations.
