WELLINGTON, Fla. — Carmen Quinn, 54, of Wellington, passed away in hospice on Feb. 10, 2018, surrounded by numerous family and friends.
She was the middle daughter of three and her parents were Patricia and Stuart Craig from Penacook, New Hampshire.
She is survived by her son Shane Quinn from Miami, her daughter Shannon (Cliff) Koziel from Boca Raton; her older sister, Tina Craig from Albany, New Hampshire; and her former husband, Joey Quinn from Royal Palm Beach.
In addition to her parents she was predeceased by her sister; Kelly Craig.
She was passionate about her family, friends, and employees and spent most of her adult life around plants and the nursery industry. She loved interacting and getting to know her customers and had a loyal following. She was the co-owner of Quinntessence Nursery in Loxahatchee for the past 18 years, with Joey.
She loved the ocean and spent her leisure time at the beach or boating with her family. Sanibel Island was one of her favorite places.
Carmen was a special person, for those who met her, even for the first time, sensed her deep authenticity and compassionate soul. Everyone who walked away from her felt positive and uplifted. Her employees were very close to her heart and they became an extension of her family as seen by the nightly vigils held during her last four nights of her life in hospice.
Carmen was loved by many and will be sorely missed.
