Olga May Lynch was born in Colon, Republic of Panama on April 17, 1944 to Oscar and Lillian Edmund. She graduated from Rainbow City High School in the Canal Zone in 1962. Chapara, as she was affectionately known, then worked in a nursery school before migrating to the U.S. in 1970. While in the U.S, Olga continued her career in childcare by working at Woodycrest Five Points Child Care for approximately 5 years. Eventually, Olga began a new career with the U.S Postal Service and retired from there in 2006.
Olga was a very loving, giving and nurturing person, but also candid and stern. She always opened her home to those that needed help getting on their feet. During her first 9 years in the U.S, she helped to raise 5 foster children: Harold, Dean, Cecilia, Anita and Willy. We had numerous family members live in our home until they were able to make it on their own.
Olga enjoyed traveling and was able to take numerous trips after her retirement. She also devoted much of her time helping to take care of her grandchildren.
On Wednesday, March 1, 2023, God called Olga home. She is survived by her husband, Carlos Lynch; children, Carla Isaacs and Lesley Reid. She leaves her legacy of love and memories to: grandchildren, Tahje, Zoe, Leah, Sonni, Samory and Solomon. She is also survived by her siblings, Oscar, Carlos, Vicente, Ronaldo, Leduina, Eugenio, Lilia, Vaughan and Denise and many other aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends that were like brothers and sisters to her.
