Born in Scotland on 4 February 1971 Passed away on 23 March 2015
Aged 44 years
Kathleen Mary Blair Lynch (nee Logan)
born in Motherwell, Scotland in 1971 to Johnnie and Margaret Logan.
Big sister to John, David and Julie. Proud Auntie to Brenna, Kier, Juliette, Maggie, Remy and Olive.
First came to Australia as a baby with her family and settled in Brisbane.
Grew up an intelligent, well-educated young woman with the ability to engage and make friends from all walks of life. Loved arts, music, dance, creativity and lived with a passion.
Kathleen married Craig Lynch from Perth in 1999, and they loved each other to the very end.
She loved animals and was bird mother to three cockatiels Charlie, George and William,
who gave her great joy and comfort.
She would work hard for excellence in her chosen careers and was her own strongest critic.
In recent years Kathleen took up weightlifting while fighting back the effects of terrible arthritis, which receded as she achieved lifts of 100kg to the amazement and inspiration of others.
In recent times, Kathleen shifted her strength towards a battle with a cancer, going through surgery with strength, determination and good humour which continued to amaze and inspire those who loved her, knew her or had just met her.
She passed away suddenly and peacefully, surrounded by those who loved her dearest and most at her bedside.
From Craig Lynch and all the Logan Family:

Reflections on Kathleen – celebrating the irrepressible human Whirlwind ! with her boundless enthusiasm for life and enormous faith in human nature that is Kathleen ! Her projects were endless and ever increasing – not content with one instrument she was learning five or six – yet still had time to listen and always had time for a story, for a laugh – her insights were uniquely “Kathleen” . She seemed, at times, ‘larger than life’- a big personality, wanting the best in life for everyone she knew – so benevolent and kind and trustworthy and loyal …I can see her so clearly and she is very much with us . With love from Helen and the folk community xxxxxxxxxxxx
