Quinn, at the tender age of nine, had her battle with cancer come to an end on June 20, 2015. She was a 4th grade student at R.F. Pettigrew Elementary School in Sioux Falls. Quinn's favorite subject was Reading. Her favorite thing about school was being a part of a Team. Her Parents (Kate and David) said: "Quinn loved being a classmate with everyone and cheering them on and having other students cheer her on. She just truly loved being a part of something bigger than herself." At home, her sense of family was definitely a defining characteristic of Quinn. She said over and over: "We Are In This Together Forever." Her dreams about her future varied. Said Kate and David: "For Quinn, they were always centered around helping others. She was always talking about how she wanted to make other people happy and to feel better."
