Anna Jimmo Quinn – Shelburne

Anna Jimmo Quinn, 97, of Shelburne, died Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, at The Shores at Shelburne Bay. She was born in Burlington on May 7, 1916, the daughter of George J. and Celia D. (Hill) Jimmo. She was a graduate of Mt. St. Mary Academy in 1934, and Trinity College, Burlington, Class of 1938. On Sept. 30, 1939, she married Joseph J. Quinn in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Church in Burlington. They were married for 61 years. Anna was a member of St. John Vianney Parish, the Trinity College Alumnae Association, and volunteered at the American Red Cross. When her children were young, she was active in the 4-H, Cub Scouts, and CARC (Champlain Association for Retarded Citizens). She enjoyed traveling with Joe throughout the United States to meetings for the K of C, Internal Revenue Service, Vermont Attractions, and to visit family and friends. She was a faithful bridge player with the same group for many years, and continued playing at The Pines until she was 96 years old. Anna was very happy living at The Pines in South Burlington, where she made several close friends who kept in touch with her after she moved to Shelburne. At age 80, she learned to play the organ, a way to relax that she thoroughly enjoyed. Anna is survived by her daughter, Anne M. Quinn of South Hero; three sons, Matthew G. and wife, Judith, of Manchester, Conn., Michael J. and wife, Nancy, of Casper, Wyo., and James P. of South Burlington; seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. She is also survived by two cousins, Mrs. Bette Todd of Celebration, Fla., and Lucille Foss of Burlington. She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph, on Oct. 23, 2000; brother, George A. Jimmo, on March 28, 2013; sister-in-law, Joyce Jimmo; and niece, Joanne Jimmo. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff at The Shores at Shelburne Bay, especially to Wanda Sadler. Special thanks are also expressed to Mary Loney of the VNA Hospice Program for her care and kindness shown to Anna while she was there. Two nieces, Denise Brault and Mary Jane Fitzgerald, have also been especially close to Anna. For those who wish, memorial contributions may be made to the HowardCenter, 102 So.
