ALEXANDRIA – Barbara Lee Quinn Wood, 88, Alexandria, passed away on May 2, 2017, at Community Hospital in Anderson, surrounded by her loving family following a very brief illness.

She was born on April 23, 1929 in Marion, IN, to Marjorie (Mulberry) Scott and Carey Zimmer Scott. Barbara was a graduate of Alexandria High School-Class of 1947. Barbara and her late husband Sherman Quinn operated Quinn's Inn restaurant in Alexandria for over 35 years. She married Roy Wood in 1997 and retired to Punta Gorda, Florida until returning to Alexandria in 2011.

Barbara was a member of the First Baptist Church of Alexandria and a former member of the First United Methodist Church of Alexandria, Alexandria Business and Professional Women, Omega Nu Tau sorority, and the Eagles Auxiliary. She was an avid bowler for many years and she and Sherman enjoyed square dancing.

Barbara is survived by her loving children, Linda (Dennis) Engle of Madison, IN, Kathy (Marlin) Collier of Alexandria, Richard (DeNelda) Quinn of Summitville, and Larry (Lois) Quinn of Wesley Chapel, FL. Also surviving are her brother, Richard (Joy) Scott of Punta Gorda, FL and two step children, Rick (Nancy) Wood, and Melanie (Duane) Gibson of Alexandria along with 7 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and several step children and step grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husbands, Sherman Quinn in 1988, and Roy Wood in 2013, and her sister Mary Jane Kay in 2014.
