Obituary of Elizabeth Christina Lund

Elizabeth Christina Lund (nee O’Leary) figured out that going to heaven was a smarter way to beat Alzheimer’s and went off on her next journey on March 24, 2021. She was known by family and friends as Tina or Mom and she was loved by them all. She leaves behind her two sisters, Geraldine and Sheila, her devoted daughter Lynn and beloved son Donald (aka Boomer), grandsons Billy and Denis and son in laws Eric and Timmy. She was predeceased by her daughter Karen, as well as husband Donald, Sister Peggy and brother Johnny.

Anyone who met Tina became a friend and she will be missed by her extended family of cousins, nieces and nephews from all over, especially Boston and Ireland as well as all the friends that were in her life.

Although Tina worked for the County of Rockland for many years but her true passion was selling Avon. If you knew Tina you probably received the latest Avon catalog along with a gift of the perfect product and if you were like most of us you would have received so many Avon gifts that you would be smelling like Lily’s of the Field!. Tina shared her many talents and always remembered  birthdays and holidays with a personal card and balloons. A wonderful cook, flair for decorating and always making sure that everyone was having a great time, her family was fortunate enough to celebrate summers by the pool, large holiday gatherings, and even enjoyed a ‘halfway to summer’ party complete with an indoor volleyball game.

A talented writer, Tina spent time documenting the story of her parent’s journey from Ireland to NYC. She loved to share stories with friends and family and was genuinely interested when she asked you ‘How are you doing’. A true O’Leary, she could sit and talk for hours with those that she loved. Tina loved to travel and made sure that she saw the world before Alzheimers made this too difficult. Sunrises were her favorite part of the day and she was sure to get up early in order to enjoy them.

To say that she will be missed in an understatement. Due to the current hardships faced by all during this time, the family has decided that they would prefer to celebrate her life when we can be together to hug  and recall how much Tina  meant to each of us and will set up a memorial service at a later time.
