Mme Betty Ann Quinn (Russell)
1935 - 2020
Betty Ann Quinn (Russell) of Laval, Quebec, passed away peacefully at Cité-de-la- Santé Hopital de Laval on May 18, at the age of 84 after a long battle with dementia, and most recently, complications due to Covid-19. She was the beloved wife of William “Bill” Quinn for over 63 years. Proud Mother of Linda (Ken), Steven (Trish), Bryan (Asmaa), Cathy (James), and Laura (Dave). Proud Grandmother of Ryan, Joe, Kyle, Kaitlyn, Ali, Sydney, Samantha, Matthew and Sam. She is survived by her brothers John, Fred, James, and her sisters Joan, Beverly and Janet. She is preceded in death by her sister, Marion and her parents, John and Isabella (Thornton) Russell.
Betty was born in Montreal, Quebec on September 15, 1935. Her proudest achievement was being a loving wife, mother, and grandmother to her family. She was strong in her faith and a longtime member and former Elder of St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Laval, and for many years held the position of Envelope Secretary. She was an active member and past President of the Laval Women’s Group.
Betty was an avid reader and loved her crossword puzzles. She was known for her beautiful knitted afghans, baby blankets and sweaters for her grandchildren. She donated many knitted baby blankets over the years through her chapter of the Laval Women’s Group. Betty loved the many years she and Bill spent at their cottage in Schuyler Falls, New York. Numerous family gatherings and campfires were enjoyed at the cottage. She was blessed with a great sense of humor and often had family in stitches when she tried to tell a joke and couldn’t get it out because she was laughing too hard before the punch line. In later years, she and Bill enjoyed many Caribbean cruises with both family and friends and was never one to be late for a buffet meal. Betty enjoyed good food and a good time with family and friends.
Betty will be sorely missed by family and friends. God, rest her soul in peace.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Donations in her memory can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
