Erin A Quinn


Erin A. Quinn age 18 of Wayne died tragically in an auto accident, while on her way to College on Thursday, August 15, 2013.

She was born and raised in Wayne having graduated from Wayne Valley High School with the Class of 2013.

Erin was an outgoing person who had lots of friends, an Irish Wit, and was just fun to be around. She had a special place in her heart for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Her exposure to the children’s hospital came during a class at Wayne Valley High School. The students were challenged to raise money for the hospital and her group raised the most. By raising the most money her group was able to skip the final exam, but more importantly Erin’s heart was exposed to children in need and how, with just a little effort, she could make a difference. Her close friends and family will all be able to look back to their memories of Erin and hear her favorite phrase “I Like Turtles” which shows her light hearted, easy going way of trying to make others smile.

She was the loving daughter of Kathleen Quinn of New Port Richie, FL, and Barry Quinn and his wife Lise of Wayne; dear sister of Brian Quinn of Wayne and Ian Smith of Little Falls; loved step-sister of Ben and Noah Kautz of Wayne; adored granddaughter of Barry, Sr. and Dolores Quinn of Woodland Park and the late Elizabeth and Bob Sager.

Friends may visit with the family on Monday, August 19, 2013 from 4-8 PM at the Vander May Wayne Colonial Funeral Home, 567 Ratzer Road, Wayne.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday 8:30 AM from the funeral home then to Our Lady of the Valley RC Church, 630 Valley Road, Wayne where a 10 AM Funeral Mass will be offered.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, PO Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN, 38148-0142, would be appreciated.

Our heart aches for you and your family with this heartbreaking and devastating loss of your beautiful and intelligent daughter. Erin is such a beautiful girl and she was very witty. We have very fond memories of her playing at our house with all five girls in the neighborhood when they were all young. We have been going thru older pictures of all the girls playing when they were young. We are so sorry, Pandie, Vin, Nicole, and Alexa Napolitano

To the Quinn Family: We were all saddened to learn of the tragic and untimely death of Erin......a parent's worst nightmare. I am friends with Barry (who works with Maureen and Mike) and met Barry at my Dad's (Giuseppe Murone) viewing in January of this year. I could have never imagine that I would be returning condolences on the same year as the death of my Dad. We just wanted to express our most deepest condolences and sympathies to the Quinn Family in this time of great need. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as well. ...From the Families of Joseph Murone (Donna, Joe, Carina and Joseph) and Dorothy Woodward.

To The Quinn Family My prayers are with you in your time of loss. I taught Erin 2nd grade CCC at Our Lady of the Valley. She was such a beautiful little girl. I was so lucky to have known her during that special time in her life. I still have the "smiley face" she gave me.

To Barry and all the family - I am so very sorry. Please know that I am thinking of you and Erin. I am at such a loss for words...I am sending this poem instead. Love Laurie Perhaps (to R.A.L.) Perhaps some day the sun will shine again, And I shall see that still the skies are blue, And feel once more I do not live in vain, Although bereft of You. Perhaps the golden meadows at my feet Will make the sunny hours of spring seem gay, And I shall find the white May-blossoms sweet, Though You have passed away. Perhaps the summer woods will shimmer bright, And crimson roses once again be fair, And autumn harvest fields a rich delight, Although You are not there. Perhaps some day I shall not shrink in pain To see the passing of the dying year, And listen to Christmas songs again, Although You cannot hear.' But though kind Time may many joys renew, There is one greatest joy I shall not know Again, because my heart for loss of You Was broken, long ago. By Vera Brittain

I knew Erin as a friend of my daughter Kat since middle school. I witnessed Erin as a loyal and caring friend who not only shared the fun times with her friends, but was always there for comfort and support during difficult times. Erin was a source of unconditional support and comfort for my daughter whenever needed. Just one example of her huge and giving heart. I pray that her family and friends will find comfort and an easing of the pain of her loss in the memories of how very special she was. Sincerely, Diane Acciavatti
