Anna Mae Quincy, 94, a longtime resident of Norwich, passed away on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at Chenango Memorial Hospital.

Born on February 18, 1926, in Jonesboro, TN, Anna Mae was the daughter of Ralph and Jessie (Keplinger) Guinn. Her family relocated to Norwich, where she graduated from Norwich High School in 1944.

Anna Mae worked for over thirty years as the head cook for Perry Browne Schools in Norwich. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Norwich where she volunteered at the many church events, including fundraisers, bazaars, and community dinners. She was also the church treasurer for a number of years. Anna Mae and her mother formed a ceramics business called “Corner Ceramics” which they did for a number of years together. She will always be remembered for her selfless gifts of time and generosity to her family and friends.

On August 11, 1946, Anna Mae married William R. Quincy, who predeceased her on May 16, 1977.

Anna Mae is survived by her daughter, Priscilla (Salvatore) Nicotra, of Syracuse; daughter-in-law, Beatrice Quincy, of Norwich; siblings, James (Linda) Guinn and Donna Guinn; sister-in-laws, Charlotte Guinn, Ginny Guinn May, and Phyllis Guinn; seven grandchildren; and nine great-great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her son, Ralph Quincy, on September 10, 2019; siblings, Vernon Guinn, William Guinn, Carl (Shirley) Guinn, Roy Guinn, and Bessie Brown.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Contributions in Anna Mae’s memory may be made to the First Baptist Church, 10 W. Park Place, Norwich, NY 13815, or Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, 37 W. Main St., Norwich, NY 13815.

How I loved Anna Mae!! She was my go-to person for recipes and cooking advice. Especially her cheesy potatoes and chicken and biscuits. I looked up to her as a big sister. Her Christian love showed through every inch of her living. I work as the custodian at First Baptist in Norwich. There is one specific room I lovingly call Anna Mae's closet! It is locked with a different key than any other room in the building. Therein are stored decorations, supplies, etc. much of what would have been used for decorating the fellowship hall tables or for a bazaar, etc. My key to that door is stamped with AMC, Anna Mae's Closet. I often wondered where she had the energy and enthusiasm to always be there to help, support, and guide at First Baptist church we all know it was God given . We all will miss her and be eternally grateful for the role she played in our lives. She is in our memories and know she will be in her families memories as well. Until we meet again on Gods heavenly shores!

We sure do miss Anna at our supper table, along with her daughter and grandson. She is greatly missed & would like the family to know how much of a friend she was to all of us. She was a special lady. Dawn Willis

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Anna Mae – Priscilla, Jim. Linda, , and the entire extended family . Thank you for her care in the last few years when she was presented, by no fault of her own, with a fact of life she could not ignore. As always she handled it all with grace and showed the same to those involved with her care.

Anna Mae, was a lady I have known my entire life, (I say lady because it’s a lost distinction in today’s world, with only a few left). Knew her not only through First Baptist but as a neighbor, My family moved on West Main St. “on the hill as we called it”, shortly after WWII and in the same neighborhood was Anna Mae and Bill Quincy, along with family.
Anna Mae was a dying breed of lady who never would harm anyone and would do anything for the same. She will be greatly missed by many because of her charity. We will miss her also as a friend who we could always depend on. We always thought she would live forever, defying nature, but knowing deep down that would not be.
We at First Baptist are so thankful she passed on her vast financial knowledge of it’s finances because we lost our other contributor to finance shortly after she died, Joe Stewart. Thanx Anna Mae for guiding us through many troubled waters.
To sum up our thoughts:
For us simply knowing she is with her loving heavenly Father whom she has worshiped her entire life, makes her journey worthwhile. Rest in peace my friend you deserve the rewards you are now receiving.
Much Love,
Bob and Sandy.

I was blessed to have lived and grown up next door to Anna Mae & Bill. Anna Mae was like a surrogate mother to me. If I ever got hurt I would run next door to Anna Mae, because she could fix anything. When I was a student at Perry Browne she would take me to school on cold mornings when I couldn't ride my bike. She was such a loving, classy, unselfish gibing woman. She will be sorely missed in our Norwich community.
