Services Set for Judge Patricia Grant Flynn

Funeral services have been set for Thursday and Friday for Judge Patricia Grant Flynn, 63, who died Friday.

A former assistant town attorney, she was elected a District Court judge in 2014.

She received her undergraduate degree from Notre Dame of Maryland University in 1980 and her law degree from Touro College, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in 1984.

“She never once complained, never once said this is too much,” one of her daughters, Caroline said. “All she wanted was to be here for the four of us. She was givn the opportunity to be part of something, a shot at a miracle at Bethesda. She went and was told that everything was working and going really well. But something happened, and it was a very sudden end.”

Her husband, Bob Flynn, wrote, “The Flynn family is heartbroken at the passing of our beautiful Patricia Grant Flynn— she was the greatest. Trish fought a valiant 7 year fight against breast cancer, and was brave and strong until the very end.”

Being a judge “was her dream job, she was living her dream. She only just wanted to help people,” Caroline said. “Anyone she could help, she tried. She wanted everyone to succeed. That was true in every facet of her life.”

In addition to Caroline, she leaves two other children, Stephen, an attorney who lives in Binghamton, and a daughter, Meghan, an event planner in Los Angeles.

“She always wanted to have the best life possible,” she said.

Visitation is scheduled Thursday from 4-7 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. and Friday 7-9 p.m. at MA Connell Funeral Home.

A funeral mass is scheduled Saturday at 10 a.m. at St. Philip Neri Church, 344 Main St., Northport.

Rich Schaffer, Suffolk County Democratic chairman, said, “Patricia led an impressive career in law spanning the last four decades. She most recently was a Suffolk County District Court Judge, a position she deeply loved. Patricia was adored and respected in the Huntington community and will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.”
