Lyne, Ann B. - Concord  
A lover of all children, Ann Blair Lyne, 86, of Concord, died Saturday, June 11, at her Concord home. She was the wife of the late Austin F. Lyne who died in 2014. She was born November 20, 1929 in Pittsburg, Pa. to Emme Mori and James Blair. She attended Wells College (N.Y.) before moving to N.Y.C. to work in advertising for J. Walter Thompson. She later worked for The New Yorker. Ann and Austin married on November 27, 1954. They settled in Concord, Mass. to raise their six children. They loved them and their spouses with all of their hearts: Austy and Patty Lyne of Scituate; Janie and Bob Oakes of South Burlington, Vt.; Lisa and Dick Tucker Chestnut Hill; Blair and Tracy Lyne of Concord; Mike and Kami Lyne of Brunswick, Maine; and Stephen Lyne of Concord. While running hundreds of carpools required of a mother of six, Ann took up needlepoint, which became a life-long passion. She taught many classes over the years and decorated many homes with her work. Ann also loved art, experimenting with many mediums. She became accomplished with her favorite | watercolor painting. A creative teacher at heart, with a natural gift for working with children, Ann was also a gifted early childhood educator. When her own children had grown, she turned her efforts to Head Start in Somerville, and the Cambridge Nursery School, nurturing scores of three and four year olds as if they were her own. All the while, Ann most enjoyed following the adventures of their grandchildren. Whether watching them on the field, on the stage, or running in the backyard at a Bumpy party, Ann was always happiest wherever her grandchildren were. Lovingly known as Grannie Annie, Dar 2, and Neenie, she had a great influence on Austin, Caitlin and husband Dan, Meagan, Michael, Annie, John and wife Michelle, Toph, Willy, Clare, Jack, Nolan and Sean. Ann is also greatly missed by a large extended family and countless friends of all ages. Dad welcomed Mom home with a smile and a song, and maybe even three holes of golf. We miss you and love you to the moon and back Mom. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, June 20, at 10 a.m. in Holy Family Parish, Monument Square, Concord Center. Private burial will be held the following day at the family plot in Holyhood Cemetery, Brookline. At Anns request, there will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Massachusetts Head Start Association, www.massheadstart.org or Horizons for Homeless Children, 1705 Columbus Avenue, Roxbury, MA 02119. Arrangements are under the care of Charles W. Dee Jr. and Susan M. Dee, Dee Funeral Home of Concord.

Welz, Bryan J. - Edgartown  
Bryan Joseph Welz died June 9, 2016 on Marthas Vineyard at the age of 68 after a battle with cancer. Bryan is survived by his wife Eloise Weezie Welz of Edgartown, Mass., his daughter Alison Welz of Austin, Texas, his son Nicholas Welz, daughter-in-law Sarah Dinwoodey Welz and grandchildren Adelaide and Lincoln Welz of Cohasset, Mass. (to the latter known simply as Bubba.) He is preceded in death by his parents Henry Joseph Welz and Mary Welz as well as his brother Robert Welz. Bryan was born on July 26, 1947 in Boston. He attended Catholic Memorial High School, Northfield Mount Hermon School and graduated with a degree in Government from Harvard University in 1970. Before moving to Marthas Vineyard in 2014, Bryan and Weezie lived in Cohasset, Mass. for over 30 years. For most of his professional life, Bryan was in the wine business, most recently as an independent broker. In addition to his vast knowledge of and passion for wines from all over the world, Bryan was captivated by the various cultures, cuisines, and people he met along the way. A thoughtful man with a lifelong intellectual curiosity, Bryan was also a legendary raconteur with stories that would often unfurl over the course of an entire evening and make innovative use of profanity. Bryan loved Boston sports, The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead and The Beatles, fishing on the Vineyard, finding a traffic-free shortcut and reminiscing about the good old days. He had no tolerance for bureaucracy, bad drivers or pretense. His mustache was his trademark and he was a maker of extraordinary sandwiches. Those who knew Bryan Welz knew him to be a lovable curmudgeon. A celebratory gathering in Bryans honor will be held with family and friends in the Boston area at later date. The family would like to thank the staff of Marthas Vineyard Hospital and MV Hospice for their tremendous support and care. Donations in Bryans memory can be made to the Marthas Vineyard Cancer Support Group at: http://www.mvcancersupport.org/
