June 17 2018: QUINN, Patricia Marie


Patricia Marie Quinn (Age 52) 


 On Saturday, June 16, 2018, of Silver Spring, MD.  Beloved daughter of Richard A. and the late Charlotte Erlenbach Quinn; loving sister of Diane (Lee) Branthover, Richard Quinn (Marge), Irene Ward, Linda (Dave) Lord, Joseph Quinn, Michael Quinn, Teresa (Paul) Friedlander, James Quinn, John (Trish) Quinn and Thomas (Cathryn) Quinn.  Also survived by 13 nieces and nephews, 8 great-nieces and great-nephews as well as numerous other family, relatives, friends and colleagues.

Patty had an adventurous life. She was a teacher in the Archdiocese of Washington for 30 years. She taught at St. John the Evangelist, St. Jude, St. Elizabeth and St. Raphael where she was awarded a “Golden Apple” during her 25th year of teaching Catholic education. She was a Youth Minister, a Girl Scout Leader, a Swimming Lesson Director and Instructor at Franklin Knolls Pool. She even sang in the “Folk Group” choir at St. Bernadette. St. Bernadette was the parish she grew up in and where she attended grade school. Her education continued at Eastern MS, Montgomery Blair HS and the University of Maryland. She had a Master’s Degree from Loyola College, where she was awarded the John Wise, SSJ Education Medal. She had so many friends and touched so many people. Her example of caring and love will live on in those who knew her and love her still.

Relatives and friends may call at St. Raphael Church, 1513 Dunster Rd, Rockville, MD 20854, Tuesday, June 19, 2018, from 3  to 6 PM AND 8 to 9:30 PM. From 6:45 to 8 PM, St. Raphael will have their usual Tuesday Confession and Eucharistic Adoration. While this is not part of the services for Patty, I am sure she would encourage anyone that wanted to participate in that to do so. Mass of Christian Burial at St. Raphael Church, on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 11 AM.  Interment Gate of Heaven Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Raphael Catholic School, 1513 Dunster Rd. Rockville, MD  20854. The family will greet guests back at St. Raphael school after the graveside services. At that time there will be an open microphone where people can express their feelings and memories about our “Beloved” Patty Quinn!
