Anna Gabrielle Quinlivan, 16, of Hingham passed away on July 31 from cardiac arrest following a run.
Anna was born in Washington, DC, to Mark and Julie (Marcus) Quinlivan. She and her older sister, Elisabeth, were not simply sisters, they were best friends who never exchanged an unkind word. Anna was adored by her grandparents Myles and Susan Marcus of Hingham (formerly of Brewster), and John and Celeste Quinlivan of Burlingame, CA.
She was the treasured niece of Jon Marcus of Boston, Anthony and Yoshiko Quinlivan of CA, David and Van Ton-Quinlivan of CA, and Steven and Kathleen Quinlivan of IL. Anna was the source of fun, laughter, and dance challenges for her many loving cousins.
Access to the arts shaped Anna's life and inspired her passions: she was a gifted photographer, had an encyclopedic knowledge of everything Broadway, and planned a career in theater tech in New York.
Through organ donation, Anna saved or improved the lives of many people, each of whom we hope shares his or her home with a big dog, as that is the one thing Anna never had that she always swore would have made her life perfect.
The community will be invited to celebrate Anna's life when larger gatherings are allowed.
