So sorry to hear about our dear old friend Mary Ellen. She is probably teaching and correcting the angels right now. Our prayers are with the family.

Everyone in our neighborhood knew Mrs. Quinn and her family. I will never forget her strength, diligence, organizational direction, protective and kindness to all of us, and most definitely her ringing for her children to come home for dinner. I always relayed the message. I have always respected her and was privileged to know her. She will missed. God bless Mary Ellen and her family.

I'm sorry I didn't spend more time getting to know you. I don't even know your favorite color, poem, or Bible verse. I remember your pea salad at dinner. I remember the day you took me to school with you. I remember the way your glasses hung around your neck. I remember your patient driving. I remember the day Bob and Bill pantsed me in front of everyone. And now it is time to say good-bye. Where did all the time go? You are never really gone as long as those you love & are loved by keep you in their hearts. So I will say a prayer for you dear Aunt Mary Ellen, and another prayer for those you loved and are loved by, for all that you meant to us. -Richard

At St. John’s everyone knew Mrs Quinn. I couldn’t wait for Jr high when I was little because then I could finally have Mrs Quinn as a teacher!! But then St John closed before I hit JR high I was so bummed! But what a legacy for students who didn’t even have her class to remember her impact! That’s legacy!! God bless your family.

Aunt Mary Ellen .....when I think of her, I see her smile, and laughing eyes. I hear her voice, and her great sense of humor. She would strike up a conversation with anyone and make an instant friend. Goodbyes took forever during family gatherings. Her love and spirit flows through us. The memories are golden. The teacher in her would correct my grammar, and remind us about our posture. If she overheard a conversation between us kids, and it was becoming unruly, she would say "Gentle".....she was the child whisperer. I am grateful she was part of my childhood/life. Our heartfelt deepest sympathy to Uncle Bob and all the family. May the great memories console you.

My Aunt Mary Ellen was such a wonderful person. She always gave wonderful hugs and had an endearing laugh. You could feel her love anytime you were in her presence. She also have her stern side you quickly learned to respect as well. Many of us heard the word "obedience" a time or two. Special prayers for Uncle Bob and all of her children(my cousins).Although she suffered from Alzheimer's they will mourn her loss completely. Thank you Aunt Mary Ellen for being a great person in every aspect of your life and may God bless and keep you

The Quinns were close neighbors of ours in Bellwood. I (Carol) remember many times interacting with Bob and Mary Ellen and the children. I always admired Mary Ellen for her loving attention to her home and family. She is now at home in God's hands and at peace. May memories of her live on in the hearts of many.
