August 5, 2018

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.

To the Family of Donna Mae Quinn - I was a classmate of Donna's. I was so looking forward to seeing her at our 50th Reunion at the end of this month. I remember her well from High School as someone who "got along" with almost everyone. I am sorry for your loss and sad that Donna will not brighten our gathering later this month. Take care. Mike

It is with a heavy heart that I write this to the family of Donna. Donna was one of the best pediatric nurses I had the pleasure of working with. She made a difference in the lives of many children and their families. What an achievement. There is a special place in heaven for her.

My sincere condolences to Donna’ s family.
I was one of those children that Donna touch the life of. I had Leaukemia in 1992 and Donna was my primary nurse. I remember one time for a picture I wanted to take of her she grabbed the biggest syringe she had and filled it with colored red water to be a “scary nurse” for the pic.
I always went to 4a to visit her when I came to syracuse for my check ups.
I will never forget Donna, such a kind loving soul that you could just feel when you were around her.
