Lynne Mott Callanan

Lynne Mott Callanan passed away peacefully on June 22, 2023 at her home in Arcadia, Florida surrounded by family and friends.  Lynne began her battle with cancer just before retiring, a battle she fought for over the next seven years. She endured multiple operations, chemotherapy treatments and radiation (65 treatments) and never complained. Lynne was the wife of Kevin J. Callanan for over twenty-eight years. She was the daughter of the late Irving Samuel Fleischmann and Flora Mott (Petie) Fleischmann. Born and raised in Foxboro, she would eventually settle in Sharon to raise her two daughters.

Lynne worked at the Town Spa Pizza restaurant in Stoughton for over thirty-nine years. She loved her regular customers and liked to meet new people. She also worked at the Stoughton Town Hall in the Town Clerk’s Office before moving over to the Sharon Town Clerk’s Office where she would retire from.

She moved to Arcadia, Florida in 2017 with Kevin and enjoyed hosting parties and playing golf. Mondays were special for Lynne because her “Special Angel, Mary Ellen Ervin” would pick her up for golf and ride her around to see the girls in her later years when she wasn’t able to play.

Lynne loved to travel, whether on a cruise or to the Islands. Her favorite cruise was the Rhein River with her husband and siblings.  Her favorite Island was Aruba. Lynne enjoyed parties, she could never invite enough people, she never wanted to leave anyone out. 

Lynne loved the Holidays, especially Christmas! She loved to shop, make grape jelly and wrap presents with the help of Abigail! She looked forward to the family Christmas parties as she loved to see everyone together, especially the kids. The July 4th cookout in Pocasset was another favorite for Lynne! She also enjoyed Labor Day weekend in Maine with her friends Charlene and Bob and attended the Windsor Fair for over twenty-five years.  More recent trips were to visit friends in Maine from Arcadia Village.

Lynne loved all Boston sports, but her favorite team was the Patriots and favorite player Gronk!

Besides her husband Kevin, Lynne is survived by her two daughters, Deborah Gorham and her husband Al of West Bridgewater and Rebecca Gray and her husband Andre of Sharon and her granddaughter, Savannah Rose; a sister, Judith West and her partner, Bruce Wayne of North Fort Myers, Florida; a brother Bruce Fleischmann and his wife Carol of Randolph and two cousins, Wesley Mott and his wife Sandy of Martha’s Vineyard and Glenn Mott and his wife Sheila of Wrentham; her nephews and nieces, Rob, Kip, Matt and Stacey and all her great nieces and nephews who she all adored.

She also leaves behind her “Bestie’s” Brenda Bucci, Susie Keating, Sherill Forrester and Audrey Sadler. Lynne was predeceased by her “Little Angel in Heaven” Joanne.

The Family would like to thank her team of Doctors and Nurses at the Mass. General Hospital lead by her daughter, Debbie. The team was headed up by Dr. J. Gainor and Dr. H. Willers, their kind and compassionate care allowed us to have Lynne in our lives for the last seven years.

We would also like to thank her team, Dr. B. Pellini and Dr. D. Oliver at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida wo also provided excellent care for Lynne.

The Nurses led by Steven Hawkins provided Lynne with the highest quality of care her last few weeks, they are really God’s Angels.
