Lynn Joyce Peckham
May 27, 1953 – December 11, 2019
Lynn Joyce Peckham, 66, of Branford, passed away on December 11, 2019 after a long battle with kidney disease with her daughters and son in law by her side. Born on May 27, 1953 in Waltham, MA, she was the daughter of the late Steven D Bergin and Mary R. (Healion) Bergin.
Lynn was a devout Catholic who loved to read and attended Harvard University in her youth. A free spirit, she traveled much of the world with her family and friends. She was an advocate for women and children in New Hampshire, and a volunteer at homeless shelters in Florida. She had an infectious laugh that will be missed by all, and a warm smile for everyone she met.
Lynn is survived by her daughter Stephanie Blier, husband Shane Blier, and grandson Asher Blier of Westbrook; and daughter Brittany Peckham, fiancée Joe Montuori of North Haven; and ex‐husband David Peckham of Capo Cod, MA. She also leaves behind her sisters Denise, Stephanie, Carol, Mary, and brother Christopher, along with many nieces and nephews.
Family and friends are invited to attend a mass for Lynn on Saturday, January 18th at 10:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows in Essex. CT. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Lynn's name may be made to the National Kidney Foundation: kidney.org
Lynn's family would like to express their deep gratitude to the Yale New Haven Hospital and US Renal Care in Branford, CT for their wonderful care and support during her illness.

I met Lynn when we were in elementary school & we were best friends for many years. After her mom died she became a virtual member of my family & household and was included in all family vacations and celebrations. We went down different paths in our 20's and didn't communicate as often as I would have liked, but she has always remained in my heart & thoughts. She was such a huge part of my life, and I am crushed by her loss. Deepest sympathies to her daughters and sweet grandson, and to her sisters, brother, nieces and nephews and all who loved her. Sleep well, sweet friend.
