Born in: Meriden, CT
Resided in: Meriden, CT

Janet Peregrin Flynn, 86, flew to heaven on January 4, 2022 to join her son Seth and other loving family members. Janet will be lovingly remembered by her husband and best friend of 70 years, Edgar A. Flynn of Meriden; her daughter and son-in-law, Nora and Mark Roderick of Meriden; daughter-in-law, Marianne Buck Flynn of Higganum; and grandchildren, Emma and Jillian Roderick and Evan Flynn.
Born in Meriden on November 21, 1935 to the late William and Augusta Beal Peregrin, Janet was a graduate of Meriden High School Class of ’53, and went on to earn her Associates Degree from Teacher’s College in New Britain. She taught Sunday School during these years at St. John Lutheran Church. After working at local banks, Janet co-founded the St. John Preschool where she was also lead teacher for nine years. A beautiful woman inside and out, Janet was a candidate for the title of queen for Meriden’s 150th Anniversary Celebration. When not spending time with her family, Janet’s passion was singing. She was a member of the CT Chorale, Meriden Chorus, and Wallingford Chorus. Over the years she also held leadership positions in all these groups. Janet will be remembered as a wonderful woman who was loving, kind, considerate, and forgiving.

  1. Dear Edgar, Nora & Sally, I’m so saddened by your loss. Janet was such a graciously kind person. She always made me feel like part of your family. I know you will miss her fiercely. May she Rest In Peace.

  2. Dear Ed and family,
    Janet was a great lady and wonderful inspiration for her devotion to our Wallingford Chorus. We were all blessed to know her. I can hear her singing with the angels in heaven. May God bless and comfort you all. at this trying time. Blessings, prayers and condolences
    Chris Livingstone

  3. Dear Edgar,
    We are so very sad to hear this news. I think of both of you often and always mean to reach out. Janet always saved my seat in Chorus and had to sit on my right side so she could hear me (she mentioned that often). I always looked forward to seeing you both every Tuesday. It definitly wasn’t the same when you both left. To say these past two years have not been easy for anyone is a huge understatement, some of us more than others. You and your family are in our hearts and prayers. God Bless you and may your wonderful memories sustain you in this extremely difficult time.
    Lynn and Mike Carney and Lauren

  4. Dear Edgar,
    All of your Wallingford Chorus family was saddened to hear the news of Janet’s passing. She brought so many good things to the chorus — her voice, her devotion, her friendship. And personally, to me, she was so welcoming and supportive of my work with the chorus. It will not be the same without her in our chorus and in our audience. But her spirit will be with us always. Please know, Edgar, that we love and support you too during this trying time. You are welcome to join us anytime, so we might lift your spirits with song.

  5. Dear family,
    Greetings from St. John! We pray for your family in these times…The Lord grant you his comforting peace. In Christ, Rev. S. MacDonald
