June Quinn

July 3, 1926 — June 19, 2021

June Quinn, age 94, a longtime resident of Plantation, passed away peacefully at her home on January 19, 2021, after an extended illness with Alzheimer's. Although the Covid pandemic made planning difficult at that time, we thank all of you for supporting us, and celebrating Mom's wonderful life. Born and raised in Massachusetts, June was still in high school during World War II, and immediately following graduation, went to work for the U.S. Navy Bureau of Ships. June's family suffered the loss of her brother, T/Sgt. Norman J. Lancy (Air Force), who was killed in action August 4, 1944. In 1946, she went to work for the Veteran's Administration, where she met her future husband Robert (Bob) Quinn, Sr., and they married in 1948. June & Bob soon began a family with the birth of their first son, who she named Norman in honor of her brother, and following with two more sons; Robert and James. In 1954, they moved to Florida, making Ft. Lauderdale their new home, and adding two more children; Sharlene & Christopher to the mix. In 1972, June & Bob moved to Plantation, and joined St. Gregory's Parish from Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Ft. Lauderdale. June & Bob were devout Catholics, and involved in the many activities here at St. Gregory's. They made a great team, raising their family, working real estate together, and travelling, until Bob passed away in 1994. As a widow, life was not the same, but June continued to keep busy, and serve her church and community even more. She served on the City's Parks & Recreation Board, and the Board of Adjustment. She was instrumental in the development of Plantation's Volunteer Park, Horse Arena, & Saddle Club. And she was honored as a Broward County Pioneer in 2010 through the Plantation Historical Society, just to name a few of her accomplishments. And although she loved her time with the LIFE AFTER FIFTY group, the St. Gregory's Choir held a special place in her heart for over 45 years. Being able to participate in the Archdiocesan Choir, singing for the Popes visit, and the Jubilee Mass of 2000, were just some of the many highlights she spoke of. June was a loving and devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many. June impacted so many in this community and throughout her very interesting life. We will miss her now, remember her always, and love her forever. Arrangements by T.M. Ralph Plantation Funeral Home.
