Obituary for Yvonne Quinn
Clinton-Yvonne Marie Quinn, 50, passed away peacefully at Clinton Hospital on Monday, July 10, 2017 following a nearly two year long battle with cancer. Yvonne is survived by the love of her life, James D. Garceau; her father, John M. Quinn of Maynard; siblings, Beverly Wheeler & husband Robert of Berlin; Gregory Quinn of Maynard; and Charles Quinn of Clinton; sisters-in-law, Cathy Quinn, and Kathleen Quinn, both of Lancaster; and Patricia Quinn of North Woodstock, NH; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless friends. She is pre-deceased by her mother Marian (Law) Quinn, and three brothers, John M. Quinn, Jr., Robert Quinn, and Daniel Quinn.
Yvonne was born in Marlborough, raised in Berlin and later Dennis, where she graduated from the Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School, Class of 1985. She studied Physical Therapy at Cape Cod Community College and continued studies at Mass Bay College before beginning her career as a hairdresser. Yvonne later became a full-time home health aide, and for nearly twenty years, passionately provided care for her long time best friend Kathleen Cleary. Yvonne loved life, adventure, and was happiest while outdoors either four-wheeling, snowmobiling, or in the company of those she cared for most. She was a fierce New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan and was a devoted family woman. She had an infectious smile, and brought joy to the hearts of others, beauty to the world we live in, and love to her family and friends. A Funeral Service will be celebrated on Friday, July 14, 2017 at 11AM in the Philbin-Comeau Funeral Home, 176 Water St., Clinton, with calling hours prior from 9 until 11AM.
