Lucille Quinn went to be with her Lord on April 7, 2021 after a brief illness.
Marie Lucille Agnes (Soucy) Quinn was born to Joseph Aurean Soucy and Rose Amanda (Beaulac) Soucy on August 12, 1935 in Chicopee, Massachusetts. She graduated from Assumption Catholic Church in Chicopee and received a degree from Forsyth School of the Dental Hygienists at Tuffs College, Boston, Massachusetts. She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with a degree in social work and concentration in gerontology.
Lucille married Paul James Quinn on May 17, 1958 in Chicopee. They were married sixty years and together raised four children while living in Boston and Canton, Massachusetts; Oldbridge, New Jersey; Darien, Connecticut; and Omaha, Nebraska, where they moved in 1974.
A devout Catholic, Lucille never questioned her faith. She attended French Catholic Schools and grew up speaking French long before learning English. She was devoted to her children and grandchildren and especially loved family gatherings during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Nebraska football season. Each of her children and their families benefitted from a close relationship with her. Lucille and Paul enjoyed travel to England, France, Japan, and the Caribbean. Most of all, she cherished their visits to Massachusetts, Florida, and Maine to be with her sisters, their families, and Paul’s family.
Outside of their home, Lucille was active in the League of Women Voters: as a realtor and broker with Byron Reed Company; and as a supervisor at FDR. She relished her 22 years long career and her many friends at Marriott Worldwide Reservation Center in Omaha.
