Quinn’s Memorial Wall in Harbour Grace

Sonya Williams, Elena Parsons, Meghan Mills and Kelly Peddle came together to remember 5 year old Quinn. Her memory will always live on in the community of Harbour Grace.

The Memory Wall honours people impacted by domestic violence. Several panels have been added and with names placed on a butterfly. The butterfly is chosen as a symbol of life.

The wall also has a section with names of missing and murdered women and children in Newfoundland and Labrador.

A Little Free Library has been established, where people can exchange books with a focus on books for children and teens.

The community has come together to add chairs, a picnics table and bench. There is a 2.4 KM walking loop adjacent to Pirate’s Path where you can spend time outside in nature and take a moment to reflect and remember as you hear the waves from the ocean.

These citizens deserve praise for taking action to remember a friend and a loved one, for ensuring others are remembered as well and to join with community and organizations to stand up against violence, especially violence targeted toward women and girls.

Quinn will always be remembered.
