Hamilton — Jennie M Cronin, 89, a lifetime resident of Hamilton and wife of Robert H. Cronin, Sr. passed away on June 7, after an extended illness.

She was predeceased by a son, Robert H Cronin Jr., formerly of Lynn, and one brother, and four sisters.

ARRANGEMENTS: Her funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, graveside in the Hamilton Cemetery, followed by a memorial reception at the First United Methodist Church, Hamilton, 391 Bay Road. Family and friends are respectfully welcomed.
