Alice Dalmar Quinn

1931 — September 20, 2019

Alice Dalmar Quinn, 88, of Delmar, NY and Bolton Landing, NY, died on September 20, 2019 at home after a long illness.  She was the daughter of the late George D. von der Heyde and Alice Carlson von der Heyde.  Born in Montclair, NJ on July 18, 1931, she spent her childhood years in Verona and Monmouth Beach, NJ.  She graduated from Verona High School in 1949, attended Hood College, and graduated from the New York Hospital School of Nursing in 1954 with a Bachelor of Science degree.

In 1955 she married Brian, who she met in New York City while he was a student at Cornell Medical College.  After several moves they settled in Delmar, NY in 1963 where they raised their six children.

She was an extraordinary woman devoted to her family and nursing.  In her early years, she worked at Albany Hospital, followed by volunteering in St. Peter’s Hospital Emergency Department.  Later on, she worked as a medical assistant at the Bone and Joint Center, and she was a wonderful help in assisting her husband on multiple orthopedic assignments overseas.

She was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church in Albany and Church of the Blessed Sacrament in Bolton Landing.

Survivors include her husband of 63 years, Dr. Brian O’M Quinn, four sons David (Lindsey), Brian (Gail), James (Karen), Michael (Kristen), and one daughter Jean (R. Maxwell).  She was predeceased by a daughter, Cathleen Marie Quinn.  She is also survived by 13 grandchildren (Brian, Patrick, Brendan, Julianne, Calley, Oliver, Max, Christine, Caroline, Michael, Kelly, Devin, Avery, and two step-grandsons Benjamin and Jake).  She is also survived by one sister, Nancy Needham of Virginia Beach, VA and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family gives special thanks to her caregivers of the past two years, Maria, Jeanette, and Crystal.

In keeping with her wishes there will be no calling hours.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Pius X Church, Loudonville, NY on Wednesday September 25


at 11:00 am for family and friends.  Private burial will follow.
