She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Paul and Jeanette Quinn and paternal grandparents, Michael and Mary Hoban.
From Katie’s obituary posted earlier this week: “Her biggest joy was being Jack’s mom… She loved watching sports, the Bears and Cubs and Michigan. Coaching Jack’s baseball and basketball teams was her favorite sporting outlet. Katie will be remembered for her love of family, her generous spirit, her wit, ne’er a negative thought… and oh, her crazy poetry.”
