Mrs. Carrol Quinn of Lawrenceville, GA, born February 2, 1939, passed away Sunday, January 6th, 2008, at the age of 68, after a bout with cancer. Carrol Quinn founder of the Quinn House came to Gwinnett County from Texas City, Texas. Mrs. Quinn loved the County that become home to her and her work. She and her husband John created Signs & Wonders Ministries/Quinn House, as well as other shelters; a licensed food bank, a clothes closet, and furniture bank, because as she said “someone had to do it.” Mrs. Quinn leaves behind a brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Lisa Pentecost, three nieces, Cheri, Diane and Megan, a nephew, Jason, as well as a Godson, Gene Brinkley and his wife, Jane, a Goddaughter, Patricia Travis and her husband, Michael, as well as thousands of “adopted” children and grandchildren. A newscast in Texas put the idea in both her and John's minds to start such an organization, and they said that it copied Topsy and “just Growed” until it became a full service organization, providing food, clothing and shelter to the homeless and needy in our area, all without government money. Quinn House has always depended on donations from concerned citizens and companies in this area to do their work. Mr. Gene Brinkley, director for the last year, says there are no changes in that policy today. Mrs. Quinn has been honored by many organizations here, including the Lions Club, the Kiwanis, the Chamber of Commerce, the Good Samaritan Group, Department of Family and Children's Services and by the League of Women Voters as one of Gwinnett's top ten ladies.
