Lenore Trutna Rynearson

Lenore Trutna Rynearson (1929-2019) Lenore Rynearson, also known as Nunu, passed away on 12/27/2019 in the company of her family following a brief illness. She lived her almost 91 years with a spunk, independence and compassion for people who were not just similar to her, but also for people who were very different. She expressed this compassion through many years of service to others and a continually gracious heart. She volunteered for years at the Fernald School in Waltham, Peace Lutheran Church in Wayland, ESL with the Hmong people in Minnesota, and various hospitals in both Minneapolis and Massachusetts. She enjoyed hospitality and she and her husband were always taking in foreign exchange graduate students from local universities. She relished all that they taught her. Lenore grew up on a farm in Minnesota and her no-nonsense practical spirit from her farm years continued to demonstrate itself throughout her life. She married Robert Rynearson, (who passed away in 1996) They lived in Georgia, California, Arizona, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Florida, and finally Nashua, NH. She is survived by her three children, Mark Rynearson and wife Annette of Goffstown, NH, Kirk Rynearson and his wife Deborah Baldwin of Columbia, MD and Kim Antonell and her husband Cliff of Wayland, MA; six grandchildren Alyssa Mclaughlin and her husband Daniel Mclaughlin and great-grandchild Reagan Korista McLaughlin of Hingham, MA, David Antonell and his wife Morgan and great-grandchild Avery Kay Antonell of Quincy, MA, Matthew Antonell and his wife Katie of Beverly, MA, Micheal Antonell and his wife Anna Grace of West Hartford, CT, Lee Rynearson and his wife Anastasia and great-grandchild Alexander Robert Rynearson of Lillington, North Carolina , and Anne Rynearson of Claremont, CA.
