Madonna Hynes

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of the late Madonna Selina Hynes (nee O'Quinn) announces her sudden passing at her residence in Millville, NL on Friday, February 23rd, 2018 at the age of 62 years. Madonna loved her family and friends. She was a loving wife, mother and sister but her proudest title was Gramma. She was happiest having her family and friends around making memories and having laughs. She enjoyed a good glass of wine or game of cards; being an O'Quinn she always played to win. She was fortunate to have many good friends who were always there for her especially over the last few years while she was struggling with her COPD.
