Marilyn C. Quincy Obituary

Marilyn C. Quincy passed away Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017, at her home. She was born July 9, 1934, in Barry, Ill., to Charles and Mildred (Carlen) Losch.

Mom married her first and only love, Harold F. Quincy on May 10, 1953, honeymooning in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, and enjoying 56 years of marriage.

Mom was a farmer's wife for 19 years, working right along the side of Dad, driving tractors, enduring the heat, cold and long grueling hours working the ground, planting, harvesting the crops and still managing to have and raise a family.

After moving to New Mexico, she did the books for the furniture store and managed the rentals in Deming.

Mom enjoyed gardening, and all kinds of flowers. She passed her love of baking to her daughter and homemade ice cream shall continue to be a family favorite. She immensely enjoyed listening to Dad play the organ and read his poetry.

She not only raised her family, she also took care of her own mother and our Dad even when she was battling breast cancer (2006). She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren including the one on its way.

Mom was a little ornery, but if she was having a bad day, you could give her a Pepsi and her frown would go away.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Harold and son Terry Eugene.

She will be missed by her sister, Carolina Flint of Clayton, Ill.; daughter, Vanita Pena; son, Harlyn Quincy of Alamogordo, N.M.; grandchildren, Jennifer Branham, Kristy Branham and Steven Heitzenrater of Avondale, Ariz.; Terry Quincy and Yvonne Rivera of Alamogordo, N.M.; great grandchildren, Sierra and Julian Lopez of Albuquerque, N.M., Zakiyah Heitzenrater of Avondale, Ariz.; granddaughter of the heart, Blair Franklin; grandson of the heart, Brian Franklin Jr. and Blanca Najar and their daughters, Ariana and Julyana; daughter-in-law, Evelyn Quincy; and numerous nieces and nephews around the country.

Mom and Dad are together once again. We love you.
