Obituary for Mary Annette Carden Quinn

Mary Annette Carden Quinn, 89, of Oxford, PA passed away on Friday, March 23, 2018.

She was the wife of the late Cornelius J. “Neil” Quinn with whom she shared 60 years of marriage.

Born in Carbondale, PA she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Lillian Carden.

Mary resided at Ware Village, in Oxford PA since 2008, first with Neil in an independent living villa, and after Neil’s passing in 2011 in personal care until 2013, and for the last 5 years in skilled nursing. After growing up in Scranton PA and attending Marywood University, Mary moved to New York City where she met Neil. She lived in Floral Park on Long Island most of her life, raising three sons: Michael, Brian, and Paul. Beyond being a homemaker, she appeared in several television commercials in connection with Neil’s role as a Madison Avenue advertising account executive, was a member of the Friends of the Floral Park Public Library, wrote poetry, and with Neil, developed an antiques business (Mary Carden Quinn Antiques). Mary and Neil exhibited early American primitive country antiques at shows in PA, NY, and New England from the middle 1980s until their last show in Rhineback, NY in 2007. While a resident at Ware, Mary made many friends, and was known to other residents and staff for her kind and gentle demeanor.

She is survived by a sister, Sally Erway of Selbyville, DE, and two sons, Brian A. Quinn and his partner, Martha May of Lubbock, TX, and Paul C. Quinn and his wife, Laurie Yarzab of Landenberg, PA.
