Quinn, Jeanette Maria ALBANY Jeanette Maria Quinn passed away on Friday, August 8, 2014 after a long illness. She was born Jeneriana Maria DeCrescenzo to loving parents Peter and Mary in 1936. Jeanette had many cousins, uncles, and aunts who watched over her as she grew from a pretty girl to a beautiful young lady. In 1954, she married Roger Quinn, to whom she stayed friends with until his death in 2011. Their marriage was far from common. They shared a love of literature, poetry, and fitness. They became expert judo players and taught hundreds the art in Delmar, including their three children, Peter, Eleanor, and Luke. Jeanette learned the sport before it was fashionable for women to compete, but many black belts in the sport proclaimed that she was one of the best technicians in the nation. Jeanette's varied interests did not stop there. She was an accomplished pianist, who could play just about anything by ear. In her late 40s, she learned to paint. In the following decades she painted hundreds of landscapes and portraits. She sold a few, but like many artists held on to most of them. Today her paintings adorn the houses of her children. Jeanette was a survivor of breast cancer. She spent many years giving her time to the Cancer Society through the counseling of others who had to endure the disease. Near the end of her life, while battling Alzheimer's, Jeanette spent much of her time in comfort thanks to the great care of Nick, Darlene, Danielle, Thristine, and Barbara. We would also like to thank Linda Morgan for making our mother's final weeks as comfortable as possible. Jeanette will be missed by her three children and their spouses, Peter and Sheryl, Eleanor and Mike, and Luke and Lia, and her six grandchildren, Shaun, Erica, Peter, Paul, Trinity, and Sofia.
