Dolores M. Quinn, in her 99th year, passed away peacefully on July 1, 2019 at the Vincentian Home. Dolores was the beloved wife of the late Raymond W. Quinn and the daughter of the late John P. & Emma (Fairley) Connors. A native Pittsburgher, Dolores and Raymond, a career military officer, lived in Italy, France and throughout the U.S. over a period of 30 years before retiring to Florida and ultimately returning to live out their lives in Pittsburgh. Dolores had the personality for building strong relationships and wonderful friendships at every duty station to which they were assigned. Colonel Quinn often noted that his successful military career was in large part the result of “Dolores’s knack for winning the hearts of the General’s to whom he reported and their wives”. In retirement, Ray & Dolores continued to travel the world, especially enjoying trips to Ireland and Russia. To all who knew her, Dolores was a beloved friend, a kind and generous woman, spirited, of strong faith and an inquiring, open mind. To spend time with her was to know that you were always at the center of her undivided attention. In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by sisters Betty Skerlong, Audrey Trimmer and brother John Connors. She is survived by her beloved “little sister”, June Jacobs. Dolores leaves to mourn her passing and to celebrate her life well lived, loving son Raymond (Susan) Quinn, granddaughters Alison and Valerie Quinn, Jessica (Kelly) Maher and Julianne (Robin) Maiden, along with beloved great-grandchildren Raymond & Emma Maiden and Kennedy & Madison Maher, all of Walla Walla, WA.
