Sister Joan Quinn, C.S.C.
August 28, 1934 - April 18, 2015
Sister Joan Quinn, c.s.c.
(Sister Mary Vincent, Martyr, c.s.c.)
A member of the Sisters of Holy Cross for 62 years, Sister Joan ended her earthly life at the Queensway Carleton Hospital in the early hours of April 18th, 2015. Joan was born in Renfrew in 1934, the daughter of the late Verena Goulet and Vincent Quinn. In addition to the Sisters in her community, those who mourn her include her brother Gerry (Florence) and Bob (Josie), many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
Sister Joan was a life-long educator with ongoing interest in her students who appreciated her in return. Her experience spanned every level of education: teacher at the elementary level (Ottawa and Renfrew); high school (St. Joseph’s, Ottawa, Henry Carr, Toronto), and at Notre Dame with the Holy Cross Family in Welland; university chaplain at Brock, school trustee in St. Catharine’s, and adult educator with the St. Francis Xavier (Antigonish, N.S.) distance learning program. In the years following community leadership in Ottawa, she participated in the diocesan adult faith program and the RCIA process at St. Basil’s parish.
