Cornelia “Connie” Quinn – Salem, NH
Cornelia “Connie” Quinn, age 60, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2023 surrounded by her family. She was born March 15th, 1962 in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri to Marguerite and the late Raymond Keene. She spent her young adult life in Lawrence MA, where she met her husband, Joseph Quinn, before having their children, Joel and Adam, and settling down in Salem, NH.
Connie worked in education at Head Start for over 30 years and received her Bachelor’s degree from Cambridge College.
Connie had a unique ability to light up a room which was matched only by her selflessness and caring for others. She truly went above and beyond for anyone and left an impact on everyone she met, which is evident in the lifelong friendships she made. She was an avid reader and loved nothing more than being on the beach with her family by her side and a good book in hand. She loved to travel to New York to visit her sisters, with whom she shared an unbreakable bond with and take trips down to Foxwoods with her husband.
Connie is survived by her husband, Joseph Quinn of Salem, NH. Her oldest son Joel Quinn of Boston, MA. Her youngest son Adam Quinn and his wife, Jamie Griffin of Saugus, MA. Her mother Marguerite Keene, her sisters Hazel Kurrasch, Jan Leete, Pat Carr, Mary Keene, her brother Jimmy Keene and their spouses. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends. Connie was predeceased by her father Raymond and sister, Susan Behuniak.
