For 89 years, Lucille shared her love, wisdom, humor and generous spirit with all who were graced by her presence. She was kind, nurturing, intelligent, and thoughtful.
A lifelong New Yorker, Lucille was also a loyal parishioner of Notre Dame church for over 60 years and was a woman of unwavering faith. She dedicated her time to teaching CCD classes at Notre Dame as an occasional teacher and was a champion of education and learning even outside the classroom. Lucille loved travel, cooking as a way to show her love, and had a true appreciation for both the small things in life, as well as the complexities of the world around her.
She dedicated her life to her family; there was nothing more important to her.
Lucille was married to her beloved John Quinn for almost 50 years, and is survived by her five children: Debra Rossi, Kathy Fable, John Quinn, Maria Quinn Shaw, and Laura Quinn, her eight grandchildren, and her sister, Joan Praeger.
Lucille, along with her husband, was the foundation of her family and will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Rather than focusing on the sadness of loss, we, the family, choose to celebrate her life, one that was well lived, and be thankful for the time that we were afforded in her company.
