Priest Says Quinlan’s Plight Touched World

United Press International

A priest Friday eulogized Karen Ann Quinlan as an “ordinary young woman” who brought the world’s mind to bear on such deep concerns as “the right to die” and “death with dignity.”

Monsignor Thomas Trapasso said Quinlan’s life was not only in God’s hands but “also the hands of men and their technology.” Quinlan, 31, who died Tuesday night after spending 10 years in a coma, was buried after a one-hour funeral Mass at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church.
