Betty Anne was born on March 25, 1932 in Hickory, NC to the late Ralph and Annie Lee Robinson. One of six children, Betty Anne had a love of education from an early age. In high school she worked for a local music store and attended Lenior-Ryne University before transferring to Appalachian State University in Boone. It was there that she met the love of her life, Ben D. Quinn, who played on the Appalachian State football team. Ben also shared her passion for education and they both enjoyed long careers as educators in Eastern North Carolina. They also enjoyed a life long association to ASU, participating in alumni activities and being Yosef Club members. Ben also served on the Board of Trustees. Betty Anne remained close to her many Mountaineer friends up until her very last days. 

Betty Anne was always highly involved in her community including volunteering at her church, First United Methodist in Morehead City, the Delta Kappa Gamma Retired Educators Sorority, Carteret Newcomers Club, and a local seashell collecting club called the Carteret Shell Belles. She was never one to stay idle and enjoyed tennis, walks on the beach, water aerobics, journaling, and reading. Above all she enjoyed being a “Gram” to her five beloved grandchildren.

She is survived by her two sons, Jeff Quinn and wife, Terry, and Paul Quinn and wife, Sharon; a sister, Jane Duncan; five grandchildren, Christian, Darby, Addien, Payton, and Ben Quinn; and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

Betty Anne was preceded in death by her devoted husband of 45 years, Ben D. Quinn and siblings, Ralph, Bob, Ben, and Sarah Robinson.
