Taide P. Quinn (Sanchez) passed away on December 16, 2021 surrounded by her family at home in West Chester, PA. Lovingly known as Teddy or Mom Mom, she was born in Mexico. She came to live in New York, NY with her father, Andrew Sanchez after the death of her birth mother, Petra Perez. Andrew was fortunate to meet and marry Eurie McKenzie who adopted and loved Teddy dearly. Teddy was the wife of 69 years to the late Earl James Quinn. She was the devoted mother of Dianne McCarthy (John Patrick), Peter Quinn (Susan), Andrea Ryan (Michael). She was the extremely proud Mom Mom to 10 grandchildren, Kieran (Surian), Terence, (Ashleigh), Maura (Bryan), Erin (Daniel), Colin (Jen), Bryan (Shannon), Catherine, Sydney (Colin), Andrew, Kelly and soon-to-be 10 great-grandchildren, Liam, Brigid, Eamon, Annie, Samuel, Joseph, Libby, Hannah and Clare. She was survived by her dear brother, Ronald (Laura).
Teddy retired in 1987 from Nature’s Bounty after 20 years as their Payroll Manager. In retirement, she enjoyed cooking, traveling, the theater, old movies, knitting, shopping but most of all she loved caring for her grandchildren.
