Patricia J. “Patty”

Age 68, passed away on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at home, with family by her side.  Throughout her life, Patty was proud of being a nurse, a Democrat, and an alumna of Duquesne University.  Most of all, however, Patty was proud to be a mother and grandmother.  She was a wonderful wife, mother, role model and friend.  Patty is survived by her husband of 36 years Joseph Quinn, three sons: Michael (Kerri), James (Ashley), and John, and two twin grandsons: Connor and Finnegan.  She was the loving and devoted sister of George, Georgeanne, Peggy Creehan, John (Jill), and the late Michael and Theresa (survived by Dr. Curt Waligura); also survived by dozens of nieces, nephews and cousins.

Patty grew up in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, where she attended McKeesport High School.  She also attended and graduated from Duquesne University and St. Francis University.  She held various positions as a Registered Nurse, most recently with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Patty was active in alumni affairs at Duquesne University, particularly with the School of Nursing.  She was a loving and generous wife, mother, sister and friend.  She will be missed.
