The family of Margery Edith (Bauman) Quinland is deeply saddened to announce her transition to the next life on May 11, 2014. A loving and devoted daughter, mother, grandmother, and sister, she was born and raised in Rawson, Ohio but spent most of her adult years in St. Croix, US Virgin islands. She touched the lives of many with her generosity, humor, determination, and musical talent. In addition, Margery loved playing music, singing, reading, traveling, and going to the beach.
Before her retirement, she served in the public school system of St. Croix as an elementary music teacher for over 25 years. A college-trained organist, Ms. Quinland played for many Lutheran organizations during the nearly 30 years of residency on St. Croix.
Margery will live forever in the hearts of her devoted parents Ray and Evalyn Bauman; children: Dhakirah Hamin (aka Denise Quinland), Stedroy Mintas, and Ray Mintas; granddaughter, Tahira Hamin; sisters: Rebecca Herrold, Patricia Bauman, and Kathleen Lawson; along with countless other family and friends in Ohio, St. Croix, Atlanta, and Miami, who were blessed to love her. May God be pleased with her soul and may she rest in eternal peace.
A service will be held at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, Van Buren Twp., Ohio on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 11:00 a.m., where the family will receive family and friends one hour prior to the service. Interment will be in the church cemetery. Arrangements handled by CRATES FUNERAL HOME, Arlington. Online condolences may be made via www.coldrencrates.com.
