Julie Marcus is feeling hopeful with Anna Quinlivan
Today marks one year since we lost our daughter. Our family has not infused particular significance into this date; we choose instead to “focus on the dash” between her dates, and smile as we remember how Anna filled those 16 years with love and laughter. We hope you will do the same today.
There are some folks, however, who will (and should!) commemorate this day: the teen, the young father, and the EMT who received Anna’s organs and who, we are told, are not just healthy, but thriving. The knowledge that Anna lives on in others brings us great comfort and pride.
When Anna died, we received several wonderful letters, some from folks we thought we knew well and some from mere acquaintances, sharing how organ donation had changed their lives or the lives of their loved ones. We were similarly moved by the number of Anna’s peers who let us know that Anna had inspired them to check the organ donor box on their brand-new driver’s licenses. For such a short life, our daughter has left an outsized legacy, filled with hope and blessings for other families.
So we believe this is the appropriate day to honor Anna’s legacy by acknowledging that organ donation is one of those things no one ever wants to discuss, but there is a long list of pretty sick folks who need an organ - you may even know someone on the list. One donor can save up to 8 lives. If you have never thought about it, today is a good day to start thinking. This is an entirely personal decision: we simply ask that you begin the discussion - with your parents, your significant other, your older children, your friends - and, when you are comfortable doing so, make sure they know that you’d like to be a donor, or that you would prefer not to be. If you are a person of faith, you can include your faith leader in the conversation, as we did. If and when you are ready to put it in writing, check out https://www.organdonor.gov/ and click on your state to see how to make sure you are registered - in Massachusetts, you register on the RMV website simply by checking a box. Yes, it’s that easy.
If you already are a registered donor, we add our thanks to the many others who are grateful. [❤] [❤] [❤]
Hello HCMT friends & members,
It is with sad hearts that we pass along tragic news from one of our HCMT families. Anna Quinlivan was a beautiful young woman with whom HCMT had the privilege of working with (both on and offstage, and most recently in “Seussical” for spot and set assistance). Anna’s family has been involved with HCMT for many years, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the Quinlivan family.
HCMT will be establishing an annual scholarship in Anna’s honor, so young Hingham High students who have worked on the tech side of theater may carry on her dream. Anyone wishing to make a personal donation to this scholarship may send a check to Hingham Civic Music Theatre, c/o Joel Leonard, 14 Brewster Rd, Hingham, MA 02043. Please be sure to note on your check, that this donation is for the “Anna Gabrielle Quinlivan Scholarship”.
QUINLIVAN, Anna Gabrielle Age 16, of Hingham, July 31, of cardiac arrest. Beloved daughter of Mark and Julie (Marcus) Quinlivan, adored little sister and best friend of Elisabeth Quinlivan. Cherished granddaughter of Myles and Susan Marcus of Hingham (formerly of Brewster), and John and Celeste Quinlivan of Burlingame, CA. 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. Source of fun and laughter for many loving cousins. Services are private; the community will be invited to celebrate Anna when larger gatherings are allowed. Access to the arts shaped Anna's life and inspired her passions: she was a gifted photographer and planned a career in theater tech on Broadway. Hingham Civic Music Theatre has kindly established the Anna Gabrielle Quinlivan Scholarship for Hingham High School students involved in the tech side of theater. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to HCMT, c/o Joel Leonard, 14 Brewster Rd., Hingham, MA 02043 (please note that your donation is for the Anna Quinlivan Scholarship), or an educational arts organization of your choice.
