Patricia Carol Flynn

December 03, 1935 ‒ July 26, 2020

Bellville, Ohio

A beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Patricia (Pat) Flynn passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning of July 26, 2020. In the days before her passing, she was cared for in her home, surrounded by family. Born in Akron, Ohio to Joseph George and Elizabeth (Betty) Schlosser, her family relocated to Bellville, Ohio in 1942.

She was survived by her husband of sixty-three years, Cecil. Pat and Cecil met in high school and are both graduates of Bellville High School. They were married in 1957 and have four children.

Pat was survived by her children Kimberly Knapp of Bellville, Teresa (Ted) Catino of Carmel, Indiana, Michael Flynn of Bellville, and Donald Flynn of Bellville; four grandchildren, Lindsay (John) Williams, Sara Smouther, McKenzie (Nick) Eaton, and Bryan Flynn; two step-grand-daughters, Kristyn, (Jason) Fitcho and Brynn (Joseph) Jones; and twelve great-grandchildren. Pat was also survived by one brother, Stephen Schlosser of North Liberty.

Pat was lovingly known by her family as “G.G.”, a name she coined for herself when her oldest great-grandson, Riley Smouther, was born. Pat and Cecil helped to take care of Riley when he was a baby – and it was a special time in both their lives.

Over the years, Pat and Cecil have been an example of love and strength to all who know them. Pat was a friend to everyone she met and always found the good in everyone. She would remind her family and loved ones that no matter what we should, “Just be kind.” Pat worked as a beautician for forty years. For the majority of those years, she worked at Pat’s Beauty Salon, which she owned and worked in out of her home.

Another of Pat’s favorite sayings was, “Us girls must stick together.” She loved spending time with her two daughters and four granddaughters. Pat was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Joseph George III and David Scholosser; infant sister, Barbara; and granddaughter, Kirstin Knapp.

Pat was a very special lady, loved by all, and will be greatly missed. Donations in her honor may be made to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America ( or Kindred Hospice (click here to donate online to Kindred Hospice).

  • This is heart breaking, I practically grew up in the Flynn house hold, Donnie and I had a path worn down to dirt between their house and my Grandparents house. My mom and Pat were the best of friends, and growing up their were a group of families that were very tight knit.The Flynn’s, The Walters, The Watts, The Cunningham’s, The Bennett’s, all were friends from school and us kids were all raised together… The women had a “Mothers Club” and I have many fond memories of get togethers with all of these folks. For years we had a 4 th of July picnic together… it was at Deer Park for years, then we started a tradition at the Scout Cabin pavilion that lasted for many years. Denise and I had the pleasure of having supper with Pat and Cec some months back, we were both going into the V&M at the same time, and got a table together. We had a great talk about how things were and about how things are today, Pat and all the ladies of the Mothers Club were great people and will be missed. Cecil, Kim, Terri, Mike and Donnie, you have my deepest condolences.

  • Sending much love to the Flynn family. I remember going to Pat’s house as a little girl and watching as she worked on my mom’s hair. It always made me feel so grown up. Pat and my mom, Mary Jo Pentz, always had a good time together and that joyful bond included my sisters and Pat’s daughters who grew to br great friends as well. Then the next generation of daughters grew to be friends.

    Pat was always laughing and smiling. Her kindness and generous nature will always be remembered but I have seen how it lives on in her children. You are all in our prayers.

  • To the entire Flynn Family, my deepest condolences. Pat was indeed one of the sweetest ladies I ever knew. The first time I ever met her was at a nursing home that I worked at, and she was there to do some residents hair. She said she stood outside the door listening to me consoling and talking to a resident that nobody else could get to eat while I fed her. She hugged me when I came out of the room and said “we need more like you “. I have never forgotten that and I never saw her that she didn’t have that beautiful smile. RIP sweetheart
