Mary Landers of Oak Bluffs died Oct. 13, a few weeks shy of her 94th birthday.

Mary was born Nov. 3, 1920 in Somerville to the late John and Theresa Lynch.

She was the wife of the late Francis Landers, and she raised her family in Manchester, Conn., before moving to the Vineyard in 1980. Mary worked for many years at H & N Hinckley in Vineyard Haven. She will be remembered for her quick wit, love of crosswords and devotion to her family and anyone in need.

Mary is survived by her son Thomas Landers of Oak Bluffs, Theresa Barwick and husband Kenny of Vineyard Haven, her daughter Brenda and husband Guy Codding of Vineyard Haven, her grandchildren Jade Deslauriers and husband Dan, Geoff Codding and wife Eve, William Codding and his partner Jamie Conroy. Mary also leaves her sister in law Rosalie Lynch, her cousins the Kellys, whom she stayed in close contact throughout the years, and beloved nieces and nephews. One of her biggest delights in recent years was her great-grandson Finn. She was predeceased by her sister Ann Mulvey of Phoenix, Ariz., and her brother John Lynch of Simsbury, Conn.

The family would like to express their gratitude for the loving care she received from everyone at Windemere for the last year of her life.

A memorial funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 21, at St. Augustine’s Church, Franklin street in Vineyard Haven at 11:30 a.m.
