Oma Louise Quinn, age 94, passed from this life into her Heavenly home Sunday, October 4, 2020 at Salem Place Nursing and Rehab Center in Conway. She was born July 16, 1926 in Roland, Arkansas to the late Virgil Whitt and Cassie Williams Whitt. She was a member of Beebe First Baptist Church and was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, William Odell Quinn; brothers, Virgil Whitt Jr., Aubrey Whitt, Ray Whitt; sisters Kay Grice, Phyllis Ryles, and Virginia Lee Cruse. Those left to cherish her memory are her children: Ronnie Quinn (Chris) of Conway, Tony Quinn (Becky) of Conway, Vicki Smith (Howard) of Forrest City and Karen Wisdom (Chuck) of Beebe; brothers: Larry Whitt (Marilyn), Russell Whitt (Lawanda) and Wayne Whitt (Sue); sister, Lynda Mackey and sister-in-law, Lita Whitt; 8 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchild. Oma was the daughter of a sharecropper and his child bride. She helped raise her siblings and then married and started her own family. She was active in the Extension Service Home Demonstration Club. Oma became a wonderful mother to four children and even better grandma to her 8 grandkids --- and so many other children she provided care for in her home. She kept 3 of her grandchildren before they started to school and two lived with her for a time during their college years. Besides childcare in her home, she cooked in schools and businesses, taught Sunday School, and served as the church secretary for a time at Brookwood First Baptist in Little Rock. When asked a couple of years ago what her greatest accomplishment or talent was, she replied, “Raising Children.” The family would like to thank the staff at Salem Place Nursing and Rehab Center in Conway, where Oma lived for the past 2 years. The employees there loved and cared for our mom like she was a part of their family. Memorials may be made to Parkinson’s Foundation or Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Visitation will be held 1pm, Friday, October 9, 2020 at Pinecrest Funeral Home. A graveside service will be held 2pm, Friday, October 9, 2020 at Forest Hills Cemetery.

I am praying for Our loving God to wrap His arms around you and comfort your heart as we all mourn with you on the loss of our precious Oma.
Some of the fondest memories I have as a youngster was visiting Aunt Oma,Uncle Odell and my cousins on a Sunday afternoon and playing in my Uncle's bus.
I am forever thankful for those cherished memories and my Aunt Oma.
Go rest on that Mountain top Aunt Oma .

This undoubtedly was the sweetest lady!
I was her nurse at Salem Place for quite some time. I loved her very much and I really appreciated how her family was so faithful to her. Oma Rest In Peace this gives our hearts great joy knowing that you are no longer in pain and that you can now walk and run without difficulties.

What a blessing this woman was to me, but most importantly, to Conner. Memaw welcomed Conner into her home and heart at 11 months old and little did we know, she was exactly what we needed. She was a godsend and will forever be loved!! I always think of memaw when I hear the quote, “Be the person you needed when you were younger.” She was a caring and compassionate woman who chose to love me and mine at a time when we needed someone more than ever!! We will alway love you, Memaw and you will forever be in our hearts. Misty & Conner

I am so sorry for your loss. After reading her obituary, I realized what a outstanding and very busy helping others lady she was. May she be a blessing in heaven as well and may God bless her for how she walked the life he had planned for her here on Earth.
