Tombstone Tuesday: Irma Wolfe Quinn, 1888-1955

Irma Wolfe Quinn is the youngest child of my great-great-grandparents, Joseph William and Margaret Melzina "Maggie" Carroll Wolfe. She was born September 23, 1888, in Monongahela, Washington County, Pennsylvania.

I found her on the 1900 census in Monongahela with her parents and older brothers Albert (who outlived her) and Abraham, as well as her older sister Margaret Yohe, her husband Edward Yohe, and their two-year-old son Loyd.

After that, I have been unable to locate Irma. Her middle name has been listed in some family records as Linda, although her obituary says it is Livia and the tombstone just gives the middle initial M. Other records say she might have been married to a Rowland, but she was married to an Edward Quinn since at least 1949, when they moved to Martinsburg, Jefferson County, West Virginia so Edward could be treated at the Baker Veterans Administration Center Hospital there. They lived at 333 S. Queen Street when she died on November 29, 1955. She is buried near her father, mother, and sister Myrtle in the Monongahela Cemetery.
