Anna Marie (Wellens) Quinnette was born on January 25, 1929, in the town of Bellevue to Henry L. and Lucille J. (Van Duyse) Wellens. She peacefuly passed on September 5, 2018.
Ann attended Bellevue Elementary School and graduated at the top of her class. She received an Honorary High School Diploma from (then) Superintendent of Schools Elizabeth Burmaster and attended many classes at Northeast Wisconsin Technical Institute.
On September 30, 1950, she married Donald E. Quinnette. They honeymooned to California and then settled in to begin a life where they worked together, every day, in the shop, their entire lives. Together they were owners/operators of Quinnette Sport Shop (later known as Quinnette‘s in Morrison). Ann’s life centered around her family and her career at the shop.
A tireless worker, Ann managed sales and marketing for their business, gardened, baked, volunteered at church, and enjoyed water aerobics at the CP Center on Mondays and Fridays. She enjoyed playing cards, especially with her once-a-month ladies group.
