Mary was born on a beautiful September day in 1974 to the late Donald and Mary Anne Quinn. She was raised in Cedar Knolls, attending Hanover schools and graduating from WPH in 1992 and later Morris County Vocational Technical School. She dedicated much of her time and talent to the Cedar Knolls Fire Department, which really became a second home. She loved being on the department and was always willing and able to help anyone. She was and always has been the nicest woman one could meet. Mary was easy to love and had great friends because of her kind and caring nature. After HS she took some courses before finding her niche as the secretary with VOTEC. She worked for them for 20 years and enjoyed it thoroughly. In 2001, she was blessed to meet Eric Trautmann and the rest was history. They fell in love and planned for their future together. God has a plan and surely He loved Mary. After her first two strokes just a month before their wedding, Eric has been her devoted and loving partner, husband, best friend, and care taker through thick and thin. They loved to travel and cruise together and they loved being home with their fur babies. Mary loved to try her hand at the slot machines or lottery, watch pro wrestling, cheer on her beloved NY Mets and she was an avid cross-stitcher, always making beautiful things. Although we are saddened by her passing, we take comfort in knowing that she is free from all pain and dancing in a beautiful sunflower field above.
Predeceased by her parents Donald and Mary Anne and her father in law George Trautmann; she leaves a lifetime of precious memories to her husband Eric Trautmann of 15 years. She is also survived by her mother in law Jane; brothers and sister in laws James Quinn (Sara), George Trautmann (Lisa), Glenn Trautmann (Stacey), Gregg Trautmann (Donna), Jayne Ann Struble (Wayne) and Robert Trautmann(Karen) many dear nieces and nephews and grand niece and nephew; her loyal pup and protector Cooper; adored felines Minnie, Gracie and Holly; and many more dear relatives and friends.
