Donna Mae Quinn, 68, of Liverpool (formerly Donna Almeida), beloved mother, grandmother, daughter and sister, passed peacefully and unexpectedly on Aug. 5
Her family and friends mourn her passing and will always remember Donna for her selflessness, her dedication to family, her infectious and outgoing personality, her giving spirit, and her caring service to her patients during her nursing career as a pediatrics RN. She will be dearly missed.
Donna was a long-time resident of the Syracuse area, a graduate of St. Anthony’s of Syracuse, Fayetteville-Manlius High School and the nursing program at OCC. She proudly served as a charge pediatric nurse during a 25-year career at Upstate University Hospital.
