Former Gov. Pat Quinn's mother Eileen Quinn passed away in her sleep early Saturday morning at home, according to her son, John Quinn. She was 98 years old.
Eileen Quinn spent 30 years working in the public school system and raised three sons, Pat, Tom, and John.
NBC 5's Mary Ann Ahern interviewed Eileen Quinn in 2014 in the weeks before Election Day, and she was not shy about her feelings on the race.
Her wake will be held on Friday, November 27 from 3 to 9 p.m. at the Drechsler Brown and Williams funeral home in Oak Park.
