    Aunt Dot was such a blessing in my life. I am so thankful the Lord allowed her to be such a special part of my life since 2009. I will deeply miss her!

  2. Dot, my dear friend of 52 years will be missed by our entire family. We shared a wonderful life with our spouses, Ken and John, and supported each other in their passing. Our close group of six couples who were active in St. Pius had dwindled to three widows, Dot, Esther Lawless and myself and we called ourselves “The Three Musketeers ” who continued to be best buddies. .Whether visiting on Adams Road or the North Trail, or chatting on the phone, we could share our hopes, dreams and our sorrows. We will miss Dot terribly but will always have our wonderful memories of our “family”member, , Dot Godo Quinn.

  3. Dear Quinn family,
    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I recall some good times at your home – years ago and “Mrs Quinn” was so nice, welcoming to a house full of kids!
    God bless you all.
